Many astronomers have in common a love of astronomy that was rekindled from a young age as a result of their parents' observations of the observatory. The more experience, the greater the curiosity of children.
Praise and trust
How to help a child self-confidence? How does the motivational child try? The secret here is never to compare it with any other kid, even with brothers in the house.
