I believe that the most creative time of a kid is when they start going to school, on kindergarten and elementary school, where they play with colours, cut paper, build stuff, draw, etc. These same activities shouldn't stop when they return home.

Hi Kenan, I completely agree with you, it needs to be a mixture between school and home, and not think in extremes as eliminating one of the sides. I didn't explain myself correctly. They need to complement each other.

Cheers,
Oscar

Hello Kenan, I cant agree more with your inspiration. I have always thought that actions and environment that is around kids on schools should be maintain at their home.

Parents should be more envolved on the learning that is done on schools and on the methods that are use to accomplish it, so they keep it at home. And better way to learn that from the same people parents pay to teach their children, so I say "parents go back to school!"

I like your inspiration, it is important to encourage kids to try one, two, three times until they get it right, and not make them fear that they will be wrong the first time. This means they would have to try 3 different ways of obtaining the result.

Here are 2 important things, when kids fear to not have "the" correct answer, then they stop looking for different ways to obtain the result, and just look for one of the ways (the one somebody taught them), which then concludes on that they feel to not use the correct method to obtain the result and stop thinking on alternative ones. Which at the end stops creativity and their confidence to try new things.
