It's always about balance, always will be, but reality says that the utopia is unfirmly planted on clouds.
    It is also about capability too. The parent can nurture a child to it's fullest potential. But, that potential will differ dramatically given the child.

    That is a fact.

    In one way or another, yes.

    I'm annoyed by her tone and body language. Cool vocabulary, though...

    I didn't feel dumb watching the first part of that. I do feel a little dumb each time I log in here... in a "but it's okay" way, though.

    Dumb? No. People like that give me hope for the future.

    Dumb? Nope!

    However I am happy to see that another of the awesome children generation Z being so able to articulate herself. It is true that adults lose visions, and as a child myself, I'm as idealistic, idiotic and bullet-proof as other forum members have said!

    I hope that I can remain this state of mind forever, we are the generation who is truly thrown into the world of computers and never-ending knowledge. I think we can do something to change the world can change things - and it may sound BS, but I think I, and I would believe other children, would believe it.

    But then again, I'm an ENFP, so...

    She's using learned techniques for public speaking. Her patterns of speech, the pregnant pauses, the injection of humour, her body language, much of it looks like veneer.

    bored not dumb was my initial response. If we want kids of tomorrow to grow up and be better adults than us, we need to change the way we view the children. We need to look at them individually and find out what their potential is. Look up Ken Robinson on TED.

    I think thats the talk where he describes the story of an acclaimed choreograph that worked on many of the original productions of Andrew Lloyd Webber plays. She was a terrible student at school and the parent where told by the principle to take her to the doctor because the school didnt know what to do with her. So they come to the doctors office and tells him about all these issues with her, that she cant sit still and so on. So the doctor asks for them to talk to him in private and leaves the girl alone in the room and turns on the radio. Then asks the parents to look in through the crack of the door he left open. And it doesnt take long before that the girl leaves her chair and starts dancing around. So the doctors tells the parents "Theres nothing wrong with this child, shes just a dancer. You should get her into a dancing class" And this choreographer (the girl) told that this was the best thing that happened to her because she met kindred spirits in that dancingclass.

    If we find what motivates the kids, instead of what is needed for society to run or what cooperations need, we give every kid the opportunity to develope to the full of their potential instead of manufacturing kids to be what we want/need them to be. And I think thats what she meant. If we find out what motivates them all other things will become increasingly easier to learn.
