Children have the ability to come up with wildly imaginative ideas when asked to do so. But we don’t give many chances to do this. Instead, we give problems with a “right” answer, and children are fearful of the consequences if the answer is “wrong.” They become risk averse and less imaginative. As a parent, can we do something to develop the imagination power of the children?
