Nature or nurture? I have this ‘disagreement’ with my husband at times about celebrities. Are you born to be Sean White, Serena and Venus Williams, Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlake? My husband says yes and I disagree! This post is a bit like Marriage Ref and I am going to plead my case:
What I know about Sean White is that he is amazing. White has been seen skateboarding since he was seven years old!! White’s Mom bought him a snowboard to keep him busy because he had a love for the outdoors. White stated that his parents bought him a snowboard to settle him down, he said it unleashed his love of taking risks! If you start that young and you are good at it, I believe it just inspires you to keep playing!
William Twins. Seen in pictures with their dad holding tennis rackets since they were eight years old. Oprah had them on her show and I remember them stating that tennis became a sport that they lived for. Twins said that they had a love for the sport–A sport introduced to them by their Dad at an early age. Again, they started young, played hard, had Dad as coach! Awesome and at the same time I believe a huge reason to become “amazing”!! (Because Amazing is what they are!)
Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlake: seen in Mickey Mouse Club since they were kids!! Growing up singing and in the spot light. It did take huge effort for their parents to get them to earn a spot in the Mickey Mouse Club but they grew up in that industry! Singing all their life why would they choose anything else??
I am clearly not that parent but wonder if I am selling my kids short!! My husband says that if they want to pursue anything they will let us know. Have I missed the boat? They are 7 and 9….should I sign them up for singing lessons or just take my chances??
You be the Ref and let me know your thoughts…..Do you side with my husband or side with me?
