Creative Children

Standard

My son struggles in every subject academically. He is reading 3 grade levels below, struggles to do basic math, loves science-but often becomes confused on the reasonability of an experiment….and he is honest that he does not like school.

School is not his thing. He will likely go into a trade or my guess create a new business or invention.

He thinks outside the box and sees objects for what they can become not what they are actually suppose to be.

School does not promote this learning. In fact most schools stifle it with testing. One answer that everyone needs to figure out.

But this guy is creative and you cannot teach creativity. You provide opportunities to grow it then let them flourish. He has a beautiful mind and although I worry often about him getting a job and being a productive citizen with a high school diploma, I know Ephesians 2:10 promises me he is made for a purpose and God has created him to do specific things.

The Creative Kid

Standard

I am a teacher and I worry often about the education of my son. He struggles academically with reading and math. He has documented disabilities and sensory issues. He has ADHD…but this kid is SO creative!

He is a kid that sees things not as what they are, but what they could be. He was created by God and gifted to us through adoption. I was made to parent him, but his academic struggles stress me out since creativity is not tested.

I wish they tested being awesome because he would score off the charts! I wish school would focus on the creative mind…the mind you cannot teach-it is just there and it is valuable and priceless and will change the world. Until then, I will be his biggest fan and prepare him for a education that is narrow focused, but he is more than that.

So.much.more.
