How to Raise a Creative Child

Attached is an interesting article about how to raise a creative child. I have been thinking about this quite a bit lately – how much we push our children to be more and more professional and narrow in their pursuits, be it sports or academics. What we are missing is free play. I like how this article supports the idea that when we let children find their own passions, they are more fulfilled as individuals and more likely to succeed. Free play for all!
