Creativity Takes Time. Watch this video to show how adult clients were convinced by kids to give creative folks the time they needed to really come up with something worthwhile.
As a kid, there were times I loathed school. I gave all kinds of explanations for not liking it: “The teacher’s mean.” “The test is stupid.” “The school bus smells.”
But I had no idea my complaints were simply symptoms of an educational blunder
that has gone on for centuries.
When people are no longer capable of starting and carrying on interesting and lively conversations, they become dependent on outside influences to give them something to talk about – movies, video games, newspaper headlines, the weather, accidents, etc. Perhaps this is why shallow gossip so readily abounds.
I am going to confess 3 of my most unusual Parenting Techniques for helping the above average child.

The end goal of any educational program is to teach children to become confident adults who can use critical thinking for success in life and through their chosen professions. Finding ways to link that learning to real-world experience cuts out a middle step, showing the practical application of concepts.

Have you ever met a beautifully behaved child? A child who says “please” and “thank you,” a child who is considerate of others, who is a delight to be with? Without a doubt, the people around such a child are polite to him, treat him with respect and grant him importance.
