Ep 9. Common Questions
In this episode, Edmond Yap lays out common questions about growing entrepreneurs for Acton Academy’s Caryn Kong and Dr. Ewe Chun Te ranging from how to motivate children to ways to find out children’s passions. The two guests provide advices and guidelines for parents to consider as well.
Upon recognizing the significance of children’s motivations to deviate themselves into their passion, either intrinsic or extrinsic, parents can try to understand their child better and encourage them to try out different things. Also, Caryn suggests ways parents can regulate children’s freedom and set goals according to their children’s desires and curiosities. They believe that letting children come up with what they want to do and hear them out can help children realized what they truly want to pursue and reach out to.
