What’s the best bit of parenting advice they’ve ever received?

“To be in contact and respect the natural. Going on an excursion or camping in the mountain is an adventure as well as an opportunity for children to learn things. I remember when I was little I would spend hours with my brothers building huts and playing with whatever we could find in the woods–leaves, pinecones or trunks. Children have so much imagination and the liberty they play with is thrilling; they see a spoon in something we can only see as a stick, or soup in a heap of pebbles. In this day and age we’re surrounded by games that do not stimulate a child’s imagination and this is something I reflect on as a parent. The future will belong to those who are capable of inventing and innovating, of adapting to changes and having a critical mind, because machines will do the rest. This is the way in which I was raised and I try to pass this on to my children.” //
