“Gever Tulley: 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do”

Posted: January 13, 2008 in Creativity, Critical Thinking, Education, Exploration, Innovation, Learning, Students

I watched this some time ago, but want to share it (View it and other great clips at TED Talks + check out Pangea Day, get involved!).

Here is the link to the video:  “Gever Tulley: 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do

“Gever Tulley, founder of the Tinkering School, talks about our new wave of overprotected kids — and spells out 5 (and really, he’s got 6) dangerous things you should let your kids do. Allowing kids the freedom to explore, he says, will make them stronger and smarter and actually safer.

This talk comes from TED University 2007, a pre-conference program where TEDsters share ideas.”

Enjoy!

    Why can’t every parent think like this? Let your kids go out and have fun. The video is awesome.

    Hey “C”

    You should really talk to your parents about letting you do some dangerous things, well not too dangerous. They probably need to lighten up and live a little. Who knows, if you confront them on this they may be open minded, but on the other hand your dad might take away all your confuser privileges and force you to do 50 push-ups.

    😉

    TED rules. Flat out rules.
