My son is a rockstar. Seriously. I don't just say this because I think he's smart and funny and super cute (all of which of course he is). Our bright little 6 year old has always been a charmer, but lately we're seeing a side of him that's pretty...well...rockin. On two different occasions, while visiting our friends who have a band of instruments set up in their basement, Elliot took to the microphone like he was born to perform. He directed the musicians, and laid down some lyrics off the top of his head that were incredible.
It started with his first time in front of the microphone and the "Candy" song that ensued. Take a look.
Then there was a second visit that resulted in this little performance. I think the thing that blows me away the most is his ability to come up with rhyming lyrics as he goes!
Finally, here's his most recent performance in front of quite a crowd of adults and kids. It's a little grainy but you'll get the picture.
So the question is, how do you encourage your child's natural "rockstar" talent appropriately?
