How do I encourage my kids to be creative thinkers?

How can we encourage creativity in kids? What type of things can we have in stock for our kids as child care providers and parents? Kids spend so much time in front of screens nowadays. I feel like it is so important that we encourage and help them to foster creative minds.

How do I find a balance when trying to help encourage my child to grow?

How can we best encourage our little ones without pushing too hard or hand holding too much? It's something I really struggle with and I feel like no matter what I do things are out of balance. Anyone else deal with these feelings? Maybe this is the "mom guilt" everyone has been talking about?
