Being Curious about your Child's interests

Being curious about your child's interests - be curious and ask questions about things your child likes or is doing. You need to remember it is not a test nor is it the inquisition, but simple questions like "Wow, that is really neat - how did you learn how to do that" or "I never thought of doing something like that - how did you come up with the idea?" This will help raise your child's self esteem because you are interested in what they are doing and looking to them as knowledgeable. It also will help you understand your child and "how they tick" better (who knows you might actually learn something too.)
