Are you confident about your child’s future? I do not want to be an alarmist and i certainly want the best for your children and my four-year-old daughter as well, but the more i read about the future of Artificial Intelligence and separation of economy between the top 1 percentile and the rest, i am getting more and more scared.
In the future, most people are simply not going to be needed. So how do they prepare to deal with a reality like that? I do not know the complete solution but what i know is that the top 1 percentile that i have worked with have mastered the art of public speaking. They are the ones who are creating software, raising money to start new businesses. If you want your child to reach that 1 percent, then it is encumbered upon you to not only make them a competent but a great public speaker.
If your child can become a better presenter of ideas, then he or she becomes better equipped to lead teams of other individuals, and maybe robots, in the future. There will be more opportunities for your child as many routine repetitive industries will be closed for jobs and one of the most protected skill is public speaking. Start at home, practice on the phone, and sow the seeds of speaking from a young age in the young minds to give them a better tomorrow.
