Leading Your Child to Her Calling


There has been much talk about helping kids find their passion so that they can live a full life, but how do you help your kids find that spark?  As a parent you can open the door to experiences and opportunities.  You can encourage your kids to try different things and to always be curious about life. But you can’t force your kids to love something. However, maybe one of the most important things you can do as a parent is to study your kids and take note of what kinds of activities make them excited and happy.  These 18 blog articles will give you some ideas on how to help your kids find their passion.

Introduce Your Kids to Options
. Many parents let their kids try out all sorts of different activities in order to expose them to different experiences, which is a smart idea.  If kids are never exposed to different activities, they’ll never know if something makes them happy or not.  Talk to your kids and find out what they are interested in, then see if you can help them learn more about it.  These six blog posts will explain more about how to introduce your child to various experiences.


  1. So much helpful info here, thanks. One thing I’d like to add that I hope will help some parents…My experience is that when people use the word “passion” it can throw others off. They start trying to think of some hobby that they absolutely positively with-all-their-heart LOVE. I’ve found that many people don’t have that feeling and they become downhearted for not having a passion.

    As you so wisely said Gail/Kenney in the article, “Talk to your kids and find out what they are interested in”. When people tell me they don’t have a passion I ask about their “interests” and they begin to rattle off a list of “potential passions”. It’s just semantics and it seems to help many parents and kids realize that they do indeed have a passion…by looking at their interests.

    Thanks again. Great post.

    As a single mom of 5, I know how important it is to encourage our children’s passions. I, also know how difficult it can be when you have multiple children with different passions. How do you keep up with them all? I try to spend time with each child learning about his/her passion and finding ways to encourage that passion. I spend one on one time with each child and, also encourage family support of each other. Even when my kids don’t get each other’s passions, supporting each other is so important. I have had the most difficulty with my sons. They are into “guy” stuff, like cars and fixing things. I still try to find ways to encourage, even when I don’t get it. It takes time and some time management, but it is worth the effort when your child comes to you and says, “thanks for your support.”

    1. Since I vividly remember the struggles of raising three, I can only imagine raising five. My heart and admiration goes out to you. As I’m sure you can confirm each child is different and must be encouraged in his/her particular area of strength or passion.
