Naresh Saklecha Posted about 1 year ago Gever Tulley: 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do This is a great advice. Recalling a few examples... 1. Thomas Edison at the age 3 sat on bird's eggs to see what happens. He also played with fire that almost burned their cottage. 2.The great James Cameron (Avatar), got a scuba diver's licence at 16! 3.Sergey or Larry(Google founders) and Jeff Bezos (Amazon) also were massive tinkerers of electronics. 4.Richard Branson's mom left him in the wild 10 miles off their home to find his way back when he was 7. He credits this experience as cultivating him into an adventurous, challenging kid. The main point I am driving out here is to nurture our kids to be risk takers but at the same time, having the confidence to control and know what they are doing.And also to develop great curiosity and appreciation for things that are integral but not apparent or obvious.
