Sometimes we underestimate the children. It often seems that they are capable of much more than we allow them. To test this I asked my 13 years old step-daughter Sofija to design a mobile app.
She already had basic Google Slides skills and knew how to import images, make squares and circles, and add text. I have shown her few examples of mobile app designs and how I would design an app with Slides. Overall she had basic presentation design skills and 5 min training. Most importantly, being a teenager, she spent hundreds of hours using apps so she knew how login, search, browsing, and other features work.
I gave her a deadline until tomorrow to design an app she wanted. Right on deadline she emailed me a presentation with 7 app screens. She named her app iReadComics and it allowed anyone to upload and share their comics. Basically, it was a community for amateur comic book authors. I was very proud. She literally did better than some professionals I worked with.
I learned that to make our children into creators all we need to do is give them an opportunity. The rest comes easy.
