Imagine that you couldn’t explore anything new and would get punished if you did! I don’t want that happening in a million years and you probably feel the same way. Two-hundred studies show that positive psychological well-being is linked with a lower risk of heart disease, as well as lower blood pressure. Children won’t know their full potential in life if they don’t have freedom to creativity and whimsy. They would just focus on studying the whole time and not have a memorable childhood. New generations will suffer from boredom, because their ideas will be limited!
Do you want a world of freedom or one of barriers? This is my personal opinion on whether or not children’s exposure to whimsical ideas should be limited in order to effectively prepare them for adulthood. Do you agree or disagree? Leave your opinions in the comments below! ↓
Imagination is the source of every form of human achievement. And it’s the one thing that I believe we are systematically jeopardizing in the way we educate our children and ourselves.
