Great Minds are Young

Posts Tagged ‘appreciate

There is a common belief, among most of the people I know at least, that children are too young  to appreciate culture, especially when it comes to historical tourism, classical music, jazz, art, etc. Well, based on a personal experience, I totally disagree. Children appreciate whatever they get accustomed to.

As kids grow up, it is our responsibility, parents, teachers and people in charge, to shape their minds the healthiest way possible by exposing those young minds to Culture in all its aspects. The more natural and smooth the exposure is the more our kids embrace it, appreciate it and make it a part of their lives.

Children mustn’t at any point feel that it is an obligation or a punishment or something they have to do to impress other people. Children need to see their parents and people they trust appreciating and enjoying the cultural activities or moments they do or have together, so that they start appreciating them in their turns. Children need to understand and believe that culture nurtures their minds and souls and let them grow with brighter healthier minds.

Kids do enjoy and appreciate Culture in all its aspects if we, grown-ups, do! It just has to be smooth, effortless, natural, and fun. It just needs to be part of their everyday life, shared and appreciated by people they love and trust…

This great video was sent by young Yara Khalid, who would like to share with us one of her greatest inspirations that helped her appreciate what she had and never give up!

24-year-old Australian Nick Vujicic was born with no legs and no arms. Despite his huge disability, he was able to turn a supposedly miserable life with no limbs to a wonderful inspiring life with no limits!

Thank you Yara for sharing this with us!
