Summary of my journey

  1. Less is more! In working with kids it is necessary to create realistic but open tasks. Think through the challenge and show how to find solutions. The result (and the way to get there) should always be open.
  2. Play, play, and once more play! The more playful the atmosphere, the easier children come up with ideas. The more comfortable the mentor feels, the better for everyone.
  3. Show, don't tell! If you want children really to understand what you are saying, you have to give many examples and examples they could relate to.
