Not everything is for everyone and being a supermom, even when you are excited about something, it takes great strength to share it with the right children who can benefit most from the experiences.
I took my 13 year old son and his friend to the GUGGENHEIM to LIFE IN PROGRESS.
I took them there to make them think .besides the fact that we live in NYC and there is an endless supply of learning materials here to LIVE, here was a great example to share.
LIFE IN PROGRESS is an exibit where you walk upwards through the GUGGEIMHEIN
MUSEUM and are received first my a Six year old child and asked a question, "What Does Progress mean to you" your answered are forwarded on upward to another 15 year old child and so on through the museum until your are at the top speaking with an 80's something person.
This exibit makes you think, and gives you a chance to have your child think. DO NOT walk up with your child as this defeats the purpose......but if you can extend the experience and head over to three guys on madison around the corner to talk about whatever it is they got out of the exibit you will have a great after school day.
Let me know what you think !
I was able to share with my son that everyone has their own reality and in life it
is important to be able to express your own and also listen to others without there
being a need to be right, just to be heard
