Universal Children’s Day today promotes the well-being of children around the world. Of course, sometimes the best thing for a child’s welfare…is a little danger. As Gever Tulley aticulates in his TED talk “5 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Children Do”…

  1. Play with fire
  2. Own a pocket knife
  3. Throw a spear
  4. Deconstruct Appliances
  5. Break the DMCA

Tully explains that these activities inspire children to be “creative, confident and in control of the environment around them.”

His point about “deconstructing appliances” is also link to my related “Black Box” sub-theme quite explicitly …

  • These black boxes that we live with a take for granted are actually complex things made by other people and you can understand them.”
