How do you approach explaining to your child that they are not good at something?
Without hurting their feelings?
By doing it in a better way or telling them how it can be improved to get better output.
I'm not professional but i think if you told her/him for EX : Ohh i like your artwork but if you draw more you are going to be better .
Or you can say : You aren't good at singing because it's not your hobby , don't be sad ! everyone have a hobby and he should find it , you can try something else and be patient till you find it and i'm pretty sure you will be good at something one day , you should be strong !
Lol i gave you some examples i don' t know if it's will work or not i'm just
trying to help you GOOD LUCK ^^
If possible, let your child make that discovery rather than you pointing it out to him/her. Usually things that they are not good at, they will soon lose interest in it and move on to something else.
Perhaps a step further may help? How do you explain that to the (inner) child within oneself? hmmmm . . .
Parents are too PC with their kids! If they aren't that good at something, and have been given the chance to practice with no difference, they should be told the truth. It's better to be honest with them and redirect them at something that they ARE good at than let them devote time and energy on something that obviously isn't their strong point.
Tell them to try harder, everyone is not perfect. They have their own talents too.
