Hi everyone, it’s Nam-chan.
I have a sister in her thirties, and I often look after my nephew and niece for her (though it’s more like playing with them). This made me wonder what sort of education was I able to receive when I was young, and thought about learning more for my own children many years from now.
This is exactly why I am introducing these three videos if you have children. These videos are TED talks, or Technology Entertainment Design Talks, which are videos on demand with the slogan “Ideas worth spreading”. I think everyone know about it, so further explanation is needed. In particular, I would recommend these videos for parents with children between 2 and 10 years old. In fact, I introduced them to my sister, hoping it would produce some results for her.
For anyone who is overprotective of their children, thinking, “What if anything happens to my child?”. For example, while playing in the park, there’s a chance your child might jump out into the streets, so you think you have to keep your eyes on them all the time.
The speaker Gever shares that precisely because the child is protected, he or she is snatched of the opportunity to learn and interact with the environment around them. It has made me consider exposing my children to some dangerous situations. This videos suggests five of such dangerous activities haha.
2) Teaching Children “I Can”
I believe many of you would know her, with her belief that “‘I can is viral” as the most memorable. This riverside school Indian, said to be a revolutionary in elementary education, shares how to teach the most important lesson “I can” to children. You will be able to see how children solve local issues by themselves, and lead other children, providing a lesson for us adults.
Can we easily see through the lies of our children? Development scientist Kang Lee research shows that children’s lies are a physiological cause. This video celebrates the children who tells lies, and made me laugh the most.
For anyone with children or interested in children development, do give these fun and interesting videos a watch, be it on your way home or before you go to bed!
