Socrates

Socrates was truly a wise man! He must have seen the future. He spoke of a time that seems to be now. Adults are in a dilema. We don’t know exactly what to teach but we know that we just have to teach. That’s the crossroads I see our curriculums leading us to. Time has come to treat each unique gift in each unique child with it’s own unique touch. The big question may be how, but when there is a will, there is a way. I just love this post!

Contemplating The Human Direction

I find it counterintuitive that mankind subjects young children to a framework or education system based on the premise that the adults know what they should be teaching these clean slates.  If the world was progressing forward in an ever brighter horizon, I understand the premise, but it appears to me that the opposite is true.  Therefore, we would be better off creating a framework to educate our young that assumes the adults know nothing and are ignorant.  Socrates is the type of educator I have in mind for our precious young sparks of fire.

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. Reblogged this on Thinking Naked and commented:
    Hyperindividualization.

  2. What we are as adults is the product of the world we experienced as children. The way a society functions is a reflection of the childrearing practices of that society. Today, we reap what we have sown. Despite the well-documented critical nature of early life experiences, we dedicate few resources to this time of life. We do not educate our children about development, parenting or about the impact of neglect and trauma on children. As a society we put more value on requiring hours of formal training to drive a car than we do on any formal training in childrearing.

    • You have a strong point. Our society is a product of knowlege and experiences that we gather from childhood. The childhood is a period where the things learned and experienced sink so deep and plays out in maturity. We have to determine the most important things to teach and the best way to achieve that. The dilema is this; are we knowlegeable enough to determine our solutions? Are we able to communicate these solutions? Can the children be better than us? Can we trust their discretion as they grow? Do we intend to over protect and over direct to the point that they even loose the very essence of their uniqueness? There is hope. We can get things right.

  3. Teaching the unique differences between girls and guys, our program utilizes activities that allow teens to know the positives of dating and how to date in a fun and appropriate manner. They learn their love language and personality and how they relate to dating and relationships. Most importantly, we want them to understand the difference between love and infatuation. Love is not rushed, hurried, jealous, possessive, or based on sex. Love is a decision, a deep concern for the welfare of another person, and a trust based on shared experiences, beliefs or attitudes.

    • As adults, we have to be models. Our society is fast decaying because we have not solved our own problems and are imposing our ideas, that are not working, on the children that are growing. A coach never joins the tournament but, adults of today want to teach and drive. Relationship and gender related affairs, is an important aspect of life that is worth giving attention. It seems that it is the responsibility of adults to raise up children in the best way, but these same adults are either too ignorant or irresponsible to handle the situation. Let us sit up!
