How do you raise a child in a healthy way?

How do you raise a child in a healthy way? First of all, what it does NOT mean is that you ‘teach them’ what their needs are. So much of ‘teaching’ is about giving somebody what you think they need, without knowing if it’s actually the right thing for that person. It’s also not just about letting the child ‘make choices’. Being given a choice between A, B, & C is meaningless when you really want H. Also, you’re often still just giving them something you think they need, instead of taking the time to figure out with them what they really need.

Knowing the difference between what people tell you to want, and what you REALLY want.

What is advertising for? Most people would probably say it’s about letting a customer know about what goods and services are available, or telling you why you should buy their product and not someone else’s. But more and more, advertising is really about telling you what you need.

My question is, why do we need advertising to tell us what we need? Don’t we already know? To look into this, let’s talk animals for a moment.

教育,最好什麼都不做

這個標題,有點讓人摸不著頭緒!很多人大概搞不太清楚究竟「什麼都不做」是什麼意思?
「什麼都不做」真的就是字面上的意思,一點事都不做;不要教、不要說、也不要給。這樣怎麼是教育?我想,很多人心中不免產生疑問。但是,美國Sudbury School就是用這樣的方式在教育學生,老師只在學生提出需要時,給予協助,不主動給予。學生對於「學習」這件事的反應,反而超乎我們的想像。
