Everyday Inspiration, Day Five: Hook ‘Em With a Quote

Day Five : Hook ‘Em  With a Quote

Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for she was born in another time.

___ Rabindranath Tagore

I read a lot of quotes of many authors, this one awakened my mind. The poet is right to caution us how we ought to teach our kids.

Two days ago I saw a boy hardly four was busy with his cell phone, though I don’t know whether he was writing a story or playing a game, what amazed me is the fact he knew how to use it.

I compared him to me, when I was that little, I doubt I knew the word telephone, today I watch and see little kids around me with a telephone, either talking with his friend or doing  a crossword puzzle.

We still can guide the little ones about the world of today, but it’s better to let them learn their daily studies as they please, I suppose this is what the poet is telling us to do!
