Two principles for not wasting children’s talents

This is a message from yesterday: Children have more sources of ideas. They no longer just present their parents’ ideas, and interesting things will happen. The unique talents of some children are also more likely to appear \”accidentally\”. Such \”accidents\” are good ideas and methods, which can benefit other people (to the extreme, even all mankind), because these \”accidents\” are invisible Knowledge can be copied infinitely in other people\’s minds at zero cost. This is the power of innovation. This ten-year-old child has exceeded the imagination of his parents and is an innovation in his small environment. Parents who know how to appreciate can learn from their children\’s innovations and let their children lead them. Of course, when this happens, parents often don’t appreciate it. This kind of conservatism is also human instinct. Adopting a rejection attitude towards new ideas and new methods is conducive to one\’s own safety. The unknown is always scary. Explain in detail why this child did the right thing: the parent’s choice and her choice are two different forms of transactions. Parents\’ choice is a direct homomorphic transaction: if your classmates help you, you have to thank them, but the reward can only be to help your classmates. Direct trading is an early, low-end trading method in human society. It is quite inefficient and has a low success rate. \”I need you today, please help me. I can help you when you need me in the future.\” This kind of request is almost regarded as an insincere liar in the adult world, and the possibility of getting help is low. This inefficient and embarrassing way of doing things should be eliminated from childhood. If a child is induced to do it and he really listens to it, it will be really embarrassing when he grows up. If a child needs a pen, he can rent it from a classmate for 1 yuan. This is an indirect transaction with a high success rate: you meet my needs, I pay, and you can use the money to meet your current or future needs. The emergence of money made indirect transactions possible. The possibilities for transactions suddenly expanded to unlimited, and the division of labor and the market developed accordingly. Money is a great invention, and being good at using money is a skill that people should master. Being ashamed of talking about money and being ashamed of using money is an atavism, like a child growing a tail. The same thing happens. Children can already use money to conduct indirect transactions, but parents are opposed to using money. Children are already too far ahead of their parents. At this time, parents become an obstacle to their children\’s progress. Parents naturally have authority in their children\’s hearts, and their hindering effect is often successful. It is a huge waste for good children to disappear like this. The next question is, if the talent displayed by the child exceeds the awareness of the parents (which often happens), how should the parents respond so as not to hinder it? The judgment principle is based on two factors: 1. Has the child been harmed physically or property? 2. Has the child harmed other people’s bodies or property? If not, it is a voluntary transaction. The parents cannot understand it for the time being, and they can just do nothing. If they don\’t care, there will be no harm. The child spends 1 yuan to rent a classmate\’s pen for half a day, which meets the above two elements. Of course, if you know common sense about economics and know that your child has a talent for trading, you will not be afraid of colleagues’ comments, and you will also provide good guidance to facilitate the development of your child’s talent. From this point of view, parents\’ continuous learning and continuous progress are an important part of education, so as not to delay their children. Parents have a broad vision and high realm, and their children\’s lifeThe space for movement is large, the sky is high and the sky is high, and the children can fly; while parents are stuck in their ways, and most of the children are controlled to a point where they are nothing more than two or three chickens.
