Let Grow did a wonderful video with Jonah Larson, the perfect example of a kid finding his passion simply by having some free time and a parent who trusted him to explore his interests, no matter how quirky. His mom told us that at age 5 Jonah found some crochet materials in a bag and was enchanted by them:
She told Jonah that she didnâ€™t know how to crochet, but if he was interested, sheâ€™d figure out how to help him learn. So she found a YouTube tutorial for a dishcloth, set it up, and let him go.
â€œI left him alone with the iPad, the hook, and the yarn,” she says. â€œI went about my day, and when I came back, he had a dishcloth made.â€
From that moment on, Jonah was a crocheter.
