think like a child – children have no limit to their thinking
I'v been teaching kids for nearly a year now. The kids here in Taiwan are very brainwashed to rely on their parent's power and influence.
But when I was back in South Africa, I was really suprised in how much creative thinking most kids do.
We adults or older children think too much about something to do it, little children really look at things in the most obvious way there is.
What happend to us?
Education could be a cause. Education molds our thinking to something non free thinking, etc; Parent to child: ( If you don't want to fail and be nothing in the world you must study hard.)
But what is the real problem within that statement?
People are all lazy in one way or another. To a 7 year kid, s/he would be more intrerested in the visual or imaginative.
Education forces us to stop imagining and start cramming for our test.
That wasn't the orignal intent of education.
education was to challenge us to understand and be able to use the things taught to us.
Education is not at fault.
Our lack of imagination and the wh*** system's suppression of imagination is the problem.
Go back to 7 years old where imagination runs free.
And problems seems so much simpler.
