Fortunately, we don't have to "teach" our children to be creative - inherent in the very core of children's beings is the embodiment of creativity. To think of something in a new way, to inquire about something that others don't even question, to come up with something truly unique and new is what children do best. When we give our children the space and encouragement to explore their own creativity, they can become our most inspiring of artists, our most inquisitive of scientists, and our most original of philosophers.
