Recently, a Beijing-based children’s magazine, City Weekend Parents & Kids, featured me in their story about teaching public speaking skills to children. It was a fantastic opportunity for me and led me to make a list of ten easy things you can do with the kids in your life to help them develop their speaking abilities.
I am always surprised when I hear people say, ‘Oh, I’m terrible at public speaking!’ ‘I could never do that!’ And I ask, ‘Oh, really? How many speeches have you given? How long have you been learning? How many coaches have you had?’
