The Curious Parent 108

On fostering creativity in our kids with Joanna Pieters

In this episode I have a great conversation with Joanna Pieters about the importance of creativity in kids and the challenges this brings us a parents. Joanna coaches highly creative people and in her podcast and coaching work there is a focus on creative resilience, perseverance and how to stay creative. I really wanted to see if the work she does with her clients can be translated to a younger audience.

Highlights of our conversation include:

  • Why it is important to stay creative
  • How to foster creativity in the midst of our busy lives
  • Why we need both divergent and convergent thinking time and why it’s important for kids to understand the difference
  • Circle
    The importance of structure and habits in the creative process
  • Circle
    The importance about producing rather than worrying about winning when it comes to creative pursuits
