Life for kids these days can be a constant string of sensory overload.
As parents, it makes sense that you want your children to have a head start in life by introducing them to productivity early. But one man’s post on Facebook is offering advice from a different perspective. That is, to teach them the valuable lessons that we often over look.
Jonas Harrysson has been a teacher for over 16 years. He’s seen it all at this point, but in the last five years or so, he’s noticed an alarming trend amongst students that enter his classroom. Their attitudes have changed. Jonas grew tired of breaking up fights after children refused to share toys and materials with their fellow peers. After trying to reprimand these students, he’s realized that this problem can only be solved at home by parents.
In a long Facebook post, Jonas let the world know his thoughts. He probably didn’t expect his Facebook post on things to teach your child to blow up the way it did. His original post in Swedish has been liked over 15,000 times, shared over 16,000 times, and he’s received over 800 comments. It’s even gone viral in other countries after being translated.
