Encouraging Little Ones To Try New Things...

As a parent, it is essential to encourage your child to try new things.

This can be difficult sometimes, but that being said, here are four ways that you can encourage your child to explore and try new things - sometimes...



Provide opportunities for them to explore...

The best way to encourage your child to try new things is to provide them with opportunities to do so.

Take them to different places, introduce them to new people, and let them experience as many new things as possible...if they are able to do so that is.


The best way to encourage your child to try new things is by providing opportunities for exploration.

This may include taking frequent trips outside of the house or neighborhood, enrolling in extracurricular activities, sending them on school activity trips, or even something as simple as reading books about other cultures together.


Encourage them when they do try something new...


It is important to encourage your child when they do try something new, even if it is not successful.

This will show them that you are supportive and that you value their efforts.

A great way to encourage your children is by providing verbal encouragement when they take on a new task or venture.


Congratulate them for trying something different, and let them know that you are proud of their efforts - no matter the outcome!


This also goes for discouraging negative talk about themselves or the activity; instead, reframe any mistakes as learning opportunities.


Help them find activities that interest them...

If your child is struggling to find new things that interest them, you can help them out.

First, talk to them about their interests and try to find activities that match those interests.

A great way to get your child interested in trying new things is by helping them find activities that pique their interests.


This can be done by talking with them about what they like and then doing some research to find related activities. For example, if your child likes animals, you could look into taking a trip to the zoo or signing up for a petting zoo visit at a local farm.


Let them make mistakes and learn from them...

Making mistakes is a part of life, and it is vital for children to learn this.

Let them make mistakes and help them learn from them.

An essential part of encouraging your child to try new things is by letting them make- and learn from- their mistakes.


This doesn’t mean that you should let them put themselves in dangerous situations, but rather that you should allow for some trial and error as they explore their world.

If they fall down while learning to ride a bike, help them get back up and encourage them to keep trying.


In conclusion, these are just a few ways that you can encourage your child to try new things.

It is important to remember that every child is different and that what works for one child may not work for another.

Just keep trying different approaches until you find something that works for your family.


And remember, it's OK if none of this applies to you - very little would work for my own daughter.


Just do what is best for you...
