It’s one thing to have an uncle pull a quarter out of your kids nose or ear, it’s quite another thing for a child to live with a magician.
Perhaps you try your new magic on your children or nieces and nephews, to see how they react, which lines get the laughs, etc. You are not only learning from them, but they are learning from you as well, although you may not notice that. Children absorb information like a sponge. Children of magicians are likely to do a magic trick for show and tell. They know how to show, but also know not to “tell”. They’ll use your lines that get a laugh. It’s great for them. As I have mentioned many times, most magicians are shy. Magic is perfect for them. It gives them the opportunity to be in the spotlight, with the spotlight on the magic, not on them, an they get the credit. It builds their self-confidence. They’re popular at gatherings, with friends begging them to do something. They learn to vanish a coin, or do a paddle trick and soon they won’t leave home without it. You know what I’m talking about, you with the deck of cards in your pocket.
I know people who have worked their way through college, doing shows. It’s a source of income, learning, discipline and fun. And there’s a magic community, world wide and in your own home town. Magicians help each other. I’ve seen pros in the shop teaching kids who happened to be here with their parents, how to vanish a coin, after being amazed by it. I know those kids will practice it and become a star among their peers.
The point is, don’t think of magic as just a few tricks. Think of what it can do for you and your kids. It works wonders, just like magic!
