Have you ever, Mom, advised your child to try to earn extra money when he wants to buy a new toy? What do children usually do? If you just wait to save pocket money, surely the money will take longer to collect. Some parents encourage their children to start Early Childhood Businesses when they need extra money to buy their dream items. The simplest, really, is by selling whatever they make or create themselves! Some sell food, drinks, or trinkets such as bracelets.
Departing from experiences like that, why not just encourage children to run a business from an early age? Yes, so kids are entrepreneurs. Not only adults can become entrepreneurs, but children also can too.
The National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship found that young people who are trained in business from an early age will show positive changes in behavior and have a more organized success orientation. They will also be better able to focus on academic and professional achievements, share aspirations, and master leadership techniques. From running a business from an early age, they will get the following benefits:
Optimistic Attitude and Not Easy to Give Up
According to brothers Adam and Matthew Toren, authors of Kidspreneurs: Young Entrepreneurs with Big Ideas, one of the most powerful components of the kid’s entrepreneurial mindset is their ability to see obstacles as opportunities. Because children are naturally curious and tend to have an unlimited amount of energy.
The problems they face in running their business will shape them into children who have an optimistic attitude and don’t give up easily.
Accustomed to Making His Dreams Come True
Children are the ultimate dreamers! They are not yet affected by the complex difficulties of adult life. Therefore, they have many opportunities to make things that are considered by many as impossible become possible.
Well, if adults are often trapped only in dreaming, children have the opportunity and do it. They enjoy the power of new ideas, and bright energy, and watching their dreams come true is the greatest gift
Teaching Children’s Business Can Grow To Be A Solution
Every business must have its own challenges. Even though they are still small, it does not mean that parents are the ones who always solve their business problems. The children who started and who owned it, meaning that the opportunity to solve problems is also in the hands of the children.
Well, this will train them to see different points of view and identify different solutions to problems. They will learn to combine creativity with strategic thinking to solve problems in ways some adults may not have considered.
Not Easy to Satisfy The business must have competitors. Children will learn that one success will not guarantee the next. Therefore, they should not be easily satisfied. Kidpreneurship teaches children not to be easily satisfied and to always learn to empower themselves, improve quality, and improve their products.
With support and encouragement from parents, children will be able to achieve their dreams and make a positive impact on themselves and the environment.
