Creativity, by default.

We are all creative since we born, but how can we keep developing it? 

Creativity is a tool that is in all of us, in my belief, the key for educating kids. There are in my view 2 ways that would help parents develop this creativity in children:

*Make them explore. Exploring and growing that curiosity in kids, make them imagine and make them think about what’s surrounding them.

*Ask. Ask good questions that will make them think. We are too used to listen what is already ‘’known’’. Let their minds flow since their childhood.

I believe this is a topic that should be more investigated, in the end it’s what every human has inside, it’s not about external factors, but insights and imagination. Who knows how many problems would be solved by squezing everyone's mind.

I don't think it's a subject to quit after kindergarden, but to keep developing.  

We have to start introducing creativity as a matter for all of us. It's something that has nothing to do with money. The value is in each of us, a high price will never make you take more out of yourself. Educate parents for making their kids grow personally, affecting and enriching their countries of origin.

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

  • Yes. I am ready and interested in testing this idea and making it real in my community.

Absolutely, creativity is a key way of changing. More creativities can generate more dynamic activities for success. Therefore, how to increase creativities is becoming increasingly essential to the development of people, not only for the personality, but also for the value improvement.
