How do I encourage creativity in my children?

Do some homework and research:  What art forms are your children interested in?  Music, drama, dance, the visual arts, film?  Empower your children to make choices in the arts they choose to explore.  And then be POSITIVE AND ENTHUSIASTIC about your child’s efforts.  The arts are process-oriented, not product-oriented.  It is very much about the creative journey, so let your children find the joy in exploration, and give them the praise they need.
