I have two boys, aged 6 and 10 years. both ave varied interests. the elder one is more creative, is very good at clay, painting, sketching and is also leraning to play the guitar, he halso has an interest in soccer. my younger one is not so creative, (havent pushed him also too much) but he didint really make the best of the art class i enrolled him into, but is more into sports and physical play.   the issue is that when the elder one is complimented for his work the younger one feels left out and wants to imitate his bro, but cant manage to maintain interest in the same.   Am so confused what extra curricular acti should I enroll my younger one in? Also enrolling hem in different sets of classes means I am running around all the time. cant come to decide what to do? any suggestions?

Hi Ruchi, I have a nine year old son and a 6 year old daughter and have similar issues when it comes to artistic skills. My solution is that i let them try out a class that interests them but once they enroll they have to give it a fair chance. I think you should limit the activities and choose them according to their interests, but at the same time make sure that you don't spend most of your time getting them form one class to the next. Also at 6 I think our younger kids are still trying to figure out what they like, let alone what they may be good at. Take care and try not to worry too much.

u shld try to find out his area of interest. help him out with his work eg. if he wants to draw something help him as well as praise him for his work even though its not perferct n tell ur family also to do so. he is young n don't compare him with ur elder son.
