Teaching Our Children

It is an exceptional child who is literate in communicating with the world around him. The environment, just like our bodies and our dreams, conspires to guide us into cooperation with life’s flow. It is only when we allow life to guide us through its gentle whispers, rather than its hard knocks, that we achieve a life of peace and radiant health.

The comfort of one’s own company and the vital need for imaginative play and silence reveals guidance in that the child can puzzle out and come to terms with events in their life. This allows for the integration of experience and prevents the deafening dialogue of the mind found in most adults. The internal dialogue is man’s coping mechanism for suppressing unintegrated experiences that have not yielded their insights.

But how does a child begin to puzzle out his world? By gradually learning to watch for notable events and then translating their meaning through dream symbols. But though this is a way of receiving information, life requires reciprocity…

Caring for Our Children

Excerpts from How to Raise an Exceptional Child by Almine.

It is in our children that the future evolutionary leaps of man are visible. We assist in the metamorphosis of man by fostering them.

One of the largest engineering firms in the US has encountered a dilemma: their young, computer-reared engineers cannot talk to the ‘older generation’ of engineers. One of the clear deficiencies in those who get all their information from computers is the inability to think abstractly. Not having learned through hands-on experience, they cannot envision some concepts until they see them in two-dimensional diagrams.  Awareness of this situation enables us to provide both types of learning opportunities for our children – linear and abstract thinking.
