The non-musical child may be good at sports or love reading. One thing is not better than another, and neither is one child better than another. Let them develop their own skills, interests and abilities. They should not feel that they have to be more like a sibling, cousin or your friend's child.
Comparing your child to others is most likely to give them a negative image of themselves. Parenthood isn't a competition, and you don't have to show other parents how much better your child is, or worry that other children are doing better than your own.
