The home is the basis of all learning. Creativity needs to be encouraged since children are infants. Small children are naturally curious, parents need to encourage and grow their children's creativity.

Since the home is the foundation, Parents should learn to be creative.  Sometime parents expect schools to teach their children everything but extending the school to the home is very important.

Parents will be encouraged to "go back to school" this will be small seminars in which parents are encouraged to explore interests with their children. Schools will provide the space and guidelines for such seminars.  Here parents will create artwork, science project or whatever they are interested in along with their children.  

Children will be encouraged to teach their parents their own ideas and guide the parent to co-create.

To set up, schools will use back to school night to inform the parents of the year long seminars. In order to encourage parents to attend at leas 3 seminars, schools will make it a requirement for the child's grade.  This will allow parents to go to the school and be active with their children

In this challenge, we want to create ideas with young people, not for them. Outline how you’re planning to involve young people or other end-users (parents, teachers, etc) in designing, iterating or testing your idea during the Ideas phase.

The school and teachers will be in charge of creating the seminars. The parents will have to participate and the child will learn from parent, teacher and themselves. The children will most involved in guiding the type of projects and in bringing such projects home. Parents will learn new approaches to their child's learning by being active in their children's education and creative growth.
