I recently encountered this TED talk (please see link at the end of this post), featuring a researcher who was funny, interesting and informative. I share it with you all because I found it meaningful. I share it with you all because it impacted my thinking and it was actually very entertaining. Mostly though, I share it with you as a startling reminder of the competency of our children. After years of research, this speaker has come to very important conclusions about human connection. Her ideas are poignant, challenging and… were explained just as eloquently and much more simply by Opal student M.C. age 8.
In order to connect…"you have to give yourself and really stand up for yourself and be strong." M.C.
So hard. So true. Enjoy!! http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html
