Gever Tulley, founder of the Tinkering School, talks about 5 things you should let your kids do…even if those things are a little dangerous.
1. Play with Fire
2. Own a Pocket Knife
3. Throw a Spear
4. Deconstruct Appliances
5. Drive a Car
These activities will help your kids grow up to be creative, confident, and safe. Throwing, for example, stimulates various parts of the brain, and it will help your kids develop visualization, analytical, and physical skills.
