Great Minds are Young

15-year-old Nada Al Dash is celebrating today a valuable heritage embraced by a particularly old building she felt connection with the moment she noticed. All she could see from its cracked walls and weary condition is authenticity and beauty.

Here’s a drawing of that building she would like to share with us! Enjoy!

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…
