What's The Hurry?

Santi and classmates play in the sandbox of Karawatan Waldorf School
 One of the things I learned in the Waldorf/Steiner philosophy on raising children is to SAVE THEIR CHILDHOOD. Nowadays, very young children are exposed to all kinds of electronic media (television shows, internet on the laptops, games on the Ipad, etc) that they never learn what REAL PLAY is all about. You see this everywhere, at home and in the malls. Children are given the TV or the Ipad so that they can 'behave' and sit still. I've heard so many moms confess to me, "TV is the best babysitter, so you can have time to do whatever you need to do!" Did you ever ask yourself what happens to their brains when they are paralyzed by TV, not moving (which is what they are supposed to be doing at this stage!)

In my own home or when he is at a Waldorf school, Santi is free to explore and be creative in his play.

I have difficulty explaining all of this to friends or reminding my own family to turn off the tube or the  Samsung Galaxy Tab :P That is why I am so happy to announce another talk hosted by the Kolisko Waldorf School. I hope that all of YOU come to learn WHY.

A talk on the Development Stages of the Child in the Perspective of Waldorf/Steiner Philosophy
