We are all proud of our children, there is no doubt about that. Perhaps your child has a special talent or is good at a sport, maybe they can sing well. Whatever it may be, while it may be super tempting to ask them to share their talent with other people, this is actually putting them on the spot. It can make them anxious and upset. Maybe if you spoke to your child beforehand and asked them if they wouldn't mind sharing what they're good at, they may be more apt to agree. But without advanced notice, a child may freeze up and ultimately retreat into themselves.
