Did your child show some interest in playing in a band but is still struggling with the decision about which instrument to choose? Maybe you should offer some help by suggesting some of 10 easiest elementary school band instruments to play.
It is a good thing to start something when you are young. It is a wide known fact that our memory gets weaker with our age and that the children are like sponges. They suck in everything but the problem is that they are likely to forget all of it. This is why you should push your child a bit if you see that there is a talent hiding inside of them. But don’t be one of those delusional parents that just know that their kid is a wunderkind because he/she might be the most important kid in the world for you, but there are other parents as well that believe that their child is better, while there are the third persons that are just objective and don’t have any personal feelings. Why don’t you let them be the judges?
As I was saying, there are parents that believe that the best way to raise their child is to let them find themselves on their own. If their child shows interest in something, they try to stay away and not to get involved. This way, according to their beliefs, their child will decide by itself whether that is his/her calling or not.
On the other hand, there are parents that push their children too much. As soon as their child express the interest in something, in this case, some instrument, they rush to buy them the highest-quality one, find him a tutor and make him practice every day for a couple of hours. Let me tell you a secret, if you do this, be sure that your child would soon be bored with this instrument and might even start hating both instrument and you.
But definitely, the worst thing that you can do to your child is to push him towards something that he doesn’t have an interest in just because you never had a chance to do it. But I know, it isn’t my call to tell you how to raise your child so I will cool down now. But, if you ask me, it wouldn’t be such a harm to do a little research if your child expresses the interest in playing music even if he decides to become a DJ. It might be a phase or he could even make the career out of it.
