We all used to be kids at some point, but child logic still remains largely a mystery. Even when we grow up and become parents ourselves. Imagine stuffing your backpack with "beautiful cube rocks" or bathing in paint containers after your parents spend $150.00 on a pool.
A subreddit r/KidsAreF***ingStupid offers a priceless collection of clueless little ones, both adorable and hilariously funny. “Like what, you seriously can't hula hoop? Jesus Christ,” says the description of the group with a whopping 1.7 million members. All that you're gonna see below will make you wonder whether you too were like this, and the answer is most likely positive.
Kid Just Wanted To Be Sure
To us adults, kids oftentimes look like aliens from another planet. Full of genuine excitement, curiosity, and honesty, they carry the traits many of us lose on our way into adulthood.
Vineet Nayar, the founder of the Sampark Foundation based in Delhi, believes that such traits are so valuable, leaders should take lessons. “The games kids play often have an element of ‘imagine’, which we leaders overlook in our obsessive focus on movement on the road ahead and the rear view mirror.”
Another After Another
In this small world of ours, Vineet claims, we should ask childlike questions like "Why not?" The little ones are also hungry for information, soaking in all the tiniest everyday experiences that turn the world into an enormous playground. Given the opportunity, every child is ready to explore.
“We can discuss other traits of children—trust, loyalty, intuitiveness, responsibility, dedication, competitiveness, collaboration, excitement, adventure, challenge, moral fulfillment, et al.—and apply them to leadership,” argues Vineet.
