Note: Written three years ago, I chanced upon this writing from my old files. Again, another lesson from a nine-year-old boy, and this time, Momi Berlin learns of trust and faith. (September 18, 2013)
Innovation begins with wonder.
Living with three beautiful growing boys is always an adventure and a learning experience. Everyday, I learn new things. and it is because of them that I learn important lessons in life such as patience, humility, and love. Most of the time, too, they teach me valuable lessons that I hope make me a better person.
Yesterday was another learning experience. I learned about faith. That I should trust my boys even if they are twenty years my junior. Belittling any of her sons’ creativity isn’t something a parent should do. Because from these youngsters’ imagination bore inventions. And almost all inventions begin with mere wondering. It is then their desire to sophisticate things that further push them to innovate.
It was my second son’s imagination that led him to invent and create his own cellphone holder cum charger cup.
