Time to Read – Adults 30 seconds – Children you don’t need to
I love speaking at schools – it is nerve wrackingly unpredictable, great training in thinking fast and most of all, it reminds me that young people get this stuff.
nerve wrackingly unpredictable:
After contribution from a young girl of about ten
Me: “WOW – that is really thinking outside of the box”
Her: “What box?”
Great training in thinking fast:
Question – How can we stop our parents asking us what we did at school today?
Me: Tell them, they would soon get bored!
Young people get this stuff:
Me: “Everything that you need, to achieve anything you want, you already have within you”
Boy from audience: “Duhh”
So, as we conclude this children trilogy, what are you going to learn today, from a young person that you know?
With love to the child still within us all
