Want to know how to capture the interest of a young child?
Just starting doing something and act like you need some help.
Most times, a young child will want to help you out.
Young children are wired to help.
They want to feel useful, and nothing makes them feel more useful than helping an all-powerful adult.
When kids are young is the time to harness the will to help and the desire to useful.
You can do it when kids are older, but it’s harder.
For hard nuts you may have to use some native cunning.....but my guess is, if you make them genuinely feel useful they’ll join you in your activity.
All humans have a burning desire to feel useful and be appreciated. Tap that desire and you’ll have no problems connecting and engaging with your kids.
