What Adults Can Learn From Kids

Now here is a video that is incredibly impressive! Not only is this 10 yr old girl a child prodigy but an excellent public speaker with some interesting points of view. Don’t watch this or you just might learn something.

Learning between grownups and kids should be reciprocal“. Remember the days when kids should be seen and not heard? That was my generation. I only hope that my generation will understand what this brave young lady is saying. “Progress is when the new generations grow and develop better than the previous ones.

Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs “childish” thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids’ big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups’ willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.

    Hey Selurus, I don’t know what generation your from but definitely! The current generation will most definitely be better than mine. I just hope that parents from my generation, generation X, don’t make the same mistakes with their kids that the baby boomer generation made with ours. Graduate college, start a career, get married, buy a home, have kids, all in that order. Generation X is flat broke, incredibly unhappy, some are trapped in bad marriages, upside down mortgages and dead end careers. I hope we don’t put the same pressures on our kids. Let them discover their talents and passions and they will be happy, productive members of society.

    I just wish I was growing up in this generation. The technology is incredible. I feel so at home with it and it’s only getting better.

    I honestly believe that with access to information like never before the next generation will most certainly be better than the present. Hopefully they will have their hearts and minds in the right place too.
