Re-Evaluate How We Are Treating Children
If you’ve ever thought about how we raise children, and how we treat adults, you might notice just how backward it is. As Neil deGrasse Tyson puts it, “We spend the first year of a child’s life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There’s something wrong there.” Why do we teach children to be free and exploratory, only to take that away from them as they get older? There’s something so wrong here. If we teach children how to get up and explore, we need to keep that momentum going into adulthood. If you have children, this might make you rethink how you raise them (Yoddler).
