Children often see things different to us. The curiosity in which they see the world and pay attention to the little things in life is something we grown-ups have forgotten over time. Maria Montesorri, one of the world’s most renowned educationists, held children in the highest regard: “Children are human beings to who respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.”
While as we grow older, we become more cynical and our rationality takes away the joy of sheer innocence, we always look at children to remind ourselves of our own childhood. At the end of the day, deep down, all we want from life is to be as happy as the child we once were. And children oddly seem to have a way of providing us these time capsules that take us back when we watch them and listen to them.
Watch on as three young kids, (L to R) Thanmung (11), Kapangtha (12) and Nimshon (12) candidly talk about life and what they dream to make of it in a conversation that will surely roll back the years and make you smile like a carefree kid.
