What will you teach your kid?

The new playground “Cow shed”

In this materialistic world, where Edutech is the next big thing with various online/offline based educational systems selling the ‘your kid can become the genius’ dream, which is unfortunately highly subscribed by the new age parents. I often wonder, if my kid is getting enough play time in the mud, know how to throw stones in the water, learn to put bait using an earthworm, feed a cow, spend time with goats, fly a kite, cycle to the nearby lake, and as parents we make a conscious effort not to get bogged down by the pressures this educational system puts on us, make him a coder, my daughter paints like Picasso, he is already into Mozart symphony. My mum wanted me to be an average kid and I am one. I did all of the above mentioned stuff that we strive for our kid to have, but it’s really a challenge not to give in. And I am happy that I served for my country in the armed forces and I got to do all those adventurous stuff I wanted to and it has educated me and made me a confident average guy.
As parents don’t give into the pressure, hold on, imagine your childhood, let these children have a normal happy childhood, and let them get educated through trial and adventure.
