Handling Talented Kid- Parent says challenge accepted

Recently while watching the Ameer khan starrer “Taare Zameen Par” may be for the 10th time , still felt there is some more food for thought. Every kid is unique and comes with package of special Talent. It is parents duty to identify that special god given gift and provide necessary facilities to excel in that area which is the first challenge to any parent . The next step would be how to make necessary arrangements to make them excel in that field . Take a practical case of kid wants to represent State / nationals in a particular sport, now process starts with finding an academy and coach which would help him, At time student does not gel with academy, not knowing exactly where is the fault , both student and parent actively get involved in Academy/Coach hopping Process. Tough times ahead when the kid is not able to perform due to unknown factors. This point parents need to be really careful , losing patience will not help the noble cause .It is natural  to get angry if kids don’t perform to their max potential after parents proving sufficient financial and quality time assistance. Here it is not an investment, sincere efforts to give quality life to their  kids.. Some Professional counselling will be needed for both parents and the kid to come out of this crunch Situation .Chances of kid getting  disturbed due to less talented , low performance fellow players getting better chances, thanks to corrupt system . Another challenge for the Parents to educate the kids about loopholes in the system taking into account the sensitivity factor and to encourage them. Imagine the Psychological impact on the kid getting serious injury and unable to pursue a career in sports. Family support is really key at this crucial juncture as it is difficult times for family to cope up with this situation as well, They need to be strong in the first place to support the kid  . This is the reason , despite being good in extracurricular activities concentrating on getting basic qualification is a must. Not everyone has potential to become Virat, Tendular, Saina , sindhu …., but sincere efforts directs them to use it as a hobby , alternate career options, develop sports related business, list is endless. No need to lose heart if you don’t manage to become a super hero. Exceling in specific field is only part of life ,it is culture and good nature that should really matter . So let us try to give our kids level best  to help them to excel in their areas of expertise without really pushing them too much. At the end of the day “ it is all about loving our kids”
