A tree and a rope

Zoom Effect
This zoom effect could express the feeling of emptiness that hits your stomach when the swing reaches its peak. “Aren’t you scared?” Of course, you are, just enough to take care of yourself. You face your fear and learn one of life’s greatest lessons. Who said that tasks should come before play? The teachings and wisdom of play should be prioritized.
That neurotic question, from an adult, “aren’t you scared?” is the petty rudeness of projecting their own fear onto innocence. This is because when that adult was a child, someone operated the same way, frustrating and limiting them. Adults who take care of children should be aware that the true learner is themselves.
The soul of a child is strong, resilient, and brave. It is the soul of a teacher for adults to learn from.

Cheerful Leaders
What would be the educational assumption for a better world? Children sitting for hours on end to learn how to make money, or free children playing without any worries.
Yes, but how could these children face a highly competitive world in a few years? The problem does not lie with the children, but with the world. The logic behind this question hides a tendentious perversity: if we constantly prepare competitors, competition becomes the general rule.
If we decided today to free children from this unwanted yoke, they would certainly become cheerful, creative leaders who are so collaborative that they would not hesitate to make their collaborators shine.

A Branch and a Rope
This is dangerous, irresponsible, and useless, and even worse, it exposes the child to the risk of an accident.
It’s true, it’s risky, as risky as scoliosis from sitting in school chairs, as risky as compromised muscle development from a sedentary lifestyle, as risky as obesity from compensatory eating, as risky as the traps of psychological disturbances perpetuated by mercenary psychologists.
Is it really more risky to spare children from these “civilization’s ills”? I firmly believe not, as a parent’s desire is to have the best for their children: motor coordination, varied physical skills, emotional balance, joy, determination…

All Day Like This
The day goes on like this, every day: forgetting to eat, shower, do tasks, and a bunch of other things whose only function, in their pure mind, is to interrupt the eternal flow of happiness. When night comes, dirty clothes and scratches are the ingredients of this future adult ready for anything.

The Kids
Preventing a child from climbing trees should be considered a offense to the physical and mental health of the kids in the penal code. However, the penal code is more prone to highlighting the responsibility of the adult in allowing this type of activity. In the past, and I’m talking about my childhood, this was the norm for all playtime. Busy adults didn’t interfere much. Then came scientific research, germs, TV, educators, pediatricians, and various teachers, and they heavily intervened in the lives of kids. It was determined what is good and what is not good: you can’t climb trees, you can’t get wet in the rain, you can’t mess with the dirt… what a drag!
