the problem with kids these days...
isn’t that they need less video games and more structure. the problem with kids these days is us adults.
we need to stop stealing their childhood. we need to stop putting limits on their creativity. and perhaps most importantly, we need to stop telling kids what they can and can’t do.
the world is moving into a post-information age. computers are already able to mine data and derive analysis from that data with machine learning and algorithms quicker and more accurately than most any human being can do. and in a world where computers and software are able to sort and think through the information that only humans were able to do before, where does that leave us? we all become “programmers,” and ideas become the economic currency.
but how are we ever going to incubate those new world-changing ideas if all we’re teaching our kids is structure and discipline?
simple answer: we won’t.
