Our definition bypasses the academic debate over whether creativity  is more process or product. It is both. When a child thinks creatively, the process is going to manifest itself in some manner. The product may be anything from unintelligible babble to a painting that would rival a Van Gogh.

     It is important, however, for parents to focus on the inner process, rather than on its outward results. Parents must pay attention to their children's feelings and nurture their imaginations, providing toys and other materials so that child have many ways to express themselves. Otherwise, creativity will cut off at its roots.
