To acquire knowledge, one must read; but, to acquire wisdom, one must observe. Did you know that a 6 month child has 100% more observation skills than a 5 year old, which also means that as a child grows up, the observation power decreases. Now can you imagine the percentage of learning that is lost?
Observation is a skill that refers to the ability to use all your five senses to recognize, analyze and recall your surroundings. It allows you to “listen” more than just your ears and make better decisions. An observant child is:
• A good listener,
• Critical thinker,
• Effective communicator, and
• Knows what to look for.
Train your child to avoid distractions, look for details and master the art of observation.
