Children Think Right – Flying Machine Scientist
Children are born perfect and whole. We must ensure that as parents, teachers and society we nurture and nourish the hearts and minds of our future generations. Listen to the children despite how wild their imaginations may sound!
I had a really interesting discussion with a child this weekend and asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and he responded a scientist. This future scientist spoke of how he imagined a flying machine, cone shaped with a spiraling engine underneath, but did not believe it was possible in reality, because of his current perception of how far technology had currently evolved i.e. the car as we see it today.
I tasked the child to draw me a picture of what was in his mind and told him that if he believed in his heart and mind that his vision was real then he had all the powers to make it become a reality. WOW, the young minds of today have evolved so much, they are ready to take humanity where we may never have imagined we could go. Let’s ensure we do not hinder their creative juices and passion, even if these ideas are way out of the scope of some adult minds.
“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts”.
Kahlil Gibran – The Prophet
A very moving video on how Children See and Children Do. Mind your words and actions they do matter.
