Nice! :) Hmmm I think it more that as parents, okay, me anyway, sometime afraid of the kids making a mess, or being 'anal' in wanting to help them "do it right" or scared that they will come to harm with using some tools (as pointed out in the video) that we either place restrictions on the kids so that they don't have the freedom to be truely creative. I constantly have to remind myself to step back and let the kids "try things out".
Pamela: Being afraid they'd hurt themselves or make a mess is one of my major concerns too! I sonetimes nag when the mess starts, & I'm trying to be more open to leaving them to experiment, like you mentioned!
