A child brain is an un-programmed machine with all the open conditions/ statements. All true and false conditions are programmed by the us as adults. When we restrict a child, it would mean that condition is being declared false, and the code within this condition will never get executed. So we are actually binding them with our own ideology and their freedom to think big and unique. On top of it the dumb 30 x 30 inch machine, the only thing that we can listen to (with 100% focus and attention) makes a toping of corrupted programs and bad variables part of their brain algorithm. And the exposure to this talking devices to child is only to get rid of these small, cute creatures for some moments of your day.
I believe lateral thinking, an indirect and creative approach of thought process, is something that happens with the child for the initial 3-4 years. Soon, after we start programming a child, with institutes and devices around us the questions of 4+ year child start to become more logical. It’s the diversion age where the child thought process becomes more of a logic and reasoning based. And we as parents are relieved, “Thanks God! He has now stop asking me weird questions, and now sounds more logical”.
We as adults should start thinking now, where we should start drawing this logical line. There are few things where we as adults should let the child do and not impose our conditional statements; let the child think on this own, let them think big, let them find the answers of weird queries, and most importantly, let them make the most out of their life!
