Child's Play: Lighten up and have fun with '50 Dangerous Things'
Lynnwood Today - Just last week, I was talking to my kids' pediatrician about one of the million things I am worried about. At this point, over nine years into our relationship as pediatrician and person who needs reassurance, she handles it by saying just the right thing. I suspect she doesn't need a long history to find the right thing to say. She always appears so calm through the body part gluings (she has done two of the five we've required as a family,) sending us to Children's when my youngest had meningitis, and taking the role of the voice of reason and reality when I bring up another far-fetched yet real-feeling thing I'm worried about. Her response included mention of a recent New York Times Op-Ed piece about The Tinkering School in San Francisco and how lately some parents are almost afraid of their kids for fear of making the wrong decision. Ding! Ding! Ding! That IS the way that I feel and man, am I relieved it's not just me. As much as I hated saying I hadn't seen something in the New York Times (I would like to think I'm well read), the reality is I am much more up-to-date on spam-filled sites with celebrity quizzes and regrettable tattoo slideshows, so I had to look it up. The Op-Ed piece talked about the Tinkering School in San Francisco, founded by Gever Tulley and Julie Spiegler to "explore the notion that children could learn by building real things using real tools and real materials." If "real tools" doesn't give you even the slightest record scratch in your head, you are all-the-way cooler than me or maybe you haven't had the stitches-versus-glue conversation amongst medical professionals as much as I have. Either way, Tulley explains "There are not enough opportunities in a child's life to be taken seriously, to be given autonomy and to learn authentically. I think they need learning opportunities that respect and incorporate their ideas." When I read that, I realized that, in our life, that has been true as recently as this month. We taught the 9-year-old to use the toaster, cut me some slack, we hadn't treated the toaster as a flame breathing monster, but more of a thing that is more likely going to get a fork stuck in it than actual toast. When he was given the details of what was and wasn't possible and successfully toasted a waffle, he was so chuffed up he made his and his brother's breakfast for a few weeks straight. Tulley was right, I hadn't really taken him seriously and even though I fully believe I have to, and am in the process of teaching them to be adults who can take care of themselves amongst roommates to life partners, I could probably be teaching them a little more. Tulley, along with Spiegler, also penned a book: '50 Dangerous Things (you should let your children do.)' It was mentioned in the New York Times Op-Ed piece and I figured since author Allison Arieff, who outlined some of these 50 Dangerous Things, was admittedly not ready to allow all of them yet, I could take a my own look — a very cautious, nervous lo Read more...
