[LISTEN] Should the learning experience for kids be easy or hard?
Should learning experiences for kids be easy or hard? Creative parenting expert - Nikki Bush chats to Phemelo about the merits of challenges and the concept of The Learning Pit and the importance of teaching kids to de-bug their own learning systems.
According to Nikki Bush, when learning is too easy it then becomes too superficial and not as deep. She says we don't want learning to be too difficult that it becomes and turn off resulting in children giving up because it too hard.
We want to make learning interesting, and if it is interesting, we then pick their curiosity and they will want to come back for more. With children we need to lead them through the learning process, and it is in the leading in the facilitating that the skill lies.Nikki Bush - Creative Parenting Expert
Speaking to Phemelo on the Weekend Breakfast, Nikki said our whole system is set up to cater to children learning at the same time and grasping things at the same pace. That is one of the biggest flaws of the traditional education system. According to Nikki Bush, children learn at different rates and children learn best when they follow their interest.
