Kids interests are who they are. When we respect their interests they feel valued and respected.
If there are interests you've given a good try to but can't find the passion for, you can support in other ways: by being the designated driver, by paying for what they need, by researching, by knowing enough to have conversations.
You don't need to dress up in crazy outfits to grow great relationships with your kids. But it often makes it a lot more fun! :-)
