Stanley Greenspan (MD, Great Kids) said, “All children have within them the potential to be great kids. It is our job to create a great world where this potential can flourish.” This stands true and, as parents, we always try to provide them with the best opportunities. But helping the child find their true passion is sometimes overlooked.
Some children are born with a lot of interests and seem to be aware of their interests, while some struggle to find one for themselves. Today, we at Pixemy are sharing one great way of helping your child discover their true passion.
Usually, parents let their children discover their interests on their own or enroll them in different classes for them to explore. While free trial classes are the “easy-on-the-pocket” option, finding the right course and the teacher is still a challenge. If they feel that a course is good enough they usually get their child enrolled in a full-duration paid course. However, a lot of times after enrolling, parents feel like they’ve wasted the money as their child did not like the course in the long run.
To solve this dilemma of choosing between free trial classes and full-duration courses, we have introduced Pixemy Minis. Pixemy Minis are 3 class bite-sized courses taught by some of the best educators, absolutely FREE. They align with the learning outcome set out by schools for K-8 students and emphasize STEAM (STEM+Arts) education and soft skills development.
The courses cover a wide variety of skills like digital arts, literature, film-making, music and so much more. The duration of 3 classes is ideal to understand whether the child has a true passion for a particular skill or not. Also, the short duration helps in avoiding the long commitment required in full-duration courses. Moreover, learning in small groups helps students develop social skills that seem missing in free trial classes a lot of times.
Finally, it is not always easy to discover where your child’s interest is but, appropriate guidance and focused learning experiences help the parents and children make informed decisions to take steps in the right direction.
