Let children get bored, says expert

Let children get bored, says expert | Children and Parenting | Scoop.it
An education expert says children should be allowed to get bored so they can develop their innate ability to be creative.
Martha Love's insight:

Not sure that boredom is necessary, but "time to be free to create" is certainly necessary to the creative process. What do you think?

Natasha Fitria's curator insight, February 23, 8:15 PM

In this article,  i can see that this girl is feeling very lonely and sad . I pity her as at such a young age she is suffering from this diesease. I personally have not been critically ill but at her age,  she should be enjoying life and not be living in fear and worrying how much time has she left. 

Celestialyle's curator insight, February 24, 9:56 AM

i never knew that poverty is also a child disease. i always thought poverty was just a family that do not have enough money for themselves and their children. but it is actually became a child disease as it neglected the child's brain improvement. i feel that we should find a way to help these children.

Shareezan's curator insight, February 27, 3:38 AM

I know that the poverty is place that's so called not healthy. Place with a lot of litter around. People with no place to stay. Condition is bad. Many children got sick because of air pollution from the vehicles and from the burning of rubbish. A lot and a lot children getting sick and a lot of money wasted because of their hospital bills. This creates poverty. Somehow the government should do something about this. Maybe by making less vehicles and make sure there's not bad air quality. Hospital wise, they should just follow the Britain hospital system. I heard that the Britain's government give free medical check up and free operation if the people is sick and not enough money. There's a question i've been wondering. Why government never do anything to help these poor children?

Scientists Discover Children’s Cells Living in Mothers’ Brains: Scientific American

Scientists Discover Children’s Cells Living in Mothers’ Brains: Scientific American | Children and Parenting | Scoop.it
The connection between mother and child is ever deeper than thought
Martha Love's insight:

So, whose cells are inhabiting your body? This article will make you glad they are there! Your mother's, grandmother's, sister's, brother's, son's, daughter's?

 

"The physical connection between mother and fetus is provided by the placenta, an organ, built of cells from both the mother and fetus, which serves as a conduit for the exchange of nutrients, gasses, and wastes. Cells may migrate through the placenta between the mother and the fetus, taking up residence in many organs of the body including the lung, thyroid muscle, liver, heart, kidney and skin."

REACH to Rewire your Brain

REACH to Rewire your Brain | Children and Parenting | Scoop.it

Until recent years, the story of your brain was pretty discouraging. When I was getting my degree in Cognitive Science in the 1980s, I was told what you may have heard: you are born with billions of brain cells. Your brain sets like concrete as you become an adult. Neurons die throughout your lifetime, and then you die. So suck it up!

Brain wiring

Neuroscience is rewriting the story of your brain to be much more encouraging. Neuroplasticity is your brain’s ability to rewire and restructure itself due to learning and experience. Few scientists believed in neuroplasticity until recent years. Now the consensus is clear: under the right circumstances your brain physically and significantly changes throughout your life.

New Fertility Treatments May Ease 'Biological Clock' Fears

New Fertility Treatments May Ease 'Biological Clock' Fears | Children and Parenting | Scoop.it
NEW YORK -- Scientists have turned mouse skin cells into eggs that produced baby mice – a technique that, if successfully applied to humans, could someday allow women to stop worrying about the ticking of their biological clocks and perhaps even help couples create "designer babies."

 

For technical as well as ethical reasons, nobody expects doctors will be making eggs from women's skin cells any time soon. But some see possibilities and questions about its use.

 

Some experts say it could help millions of women who don't have working eggs of their own, whether because of a medical condition or cancer treatment, or because they are too old.
