  • If we all became a pile of fun-loving kids concerned only with our own pleasure and excitement (aka Narcissistic Personality Disorder) who would pick up responsibility for doing the unpleasant work, paying the piper, and insuring the family's protection and safety? Kids have the freedom to be carefree and get their narcissistic jollies provided, only because their parents do grow up and become banal, jaded, and responsible, so they can protect that child's sense of wonder and provide all those delights to their child, temporarily. Try working in Children's Services and see the results of childlike parents who live for their own pleasures? It is the fact of life for all mammals that without maturation into banality so that we can handle the unpleasant realities of life, we do not survive and neither do our kids. Thank you, all you parents and mature adults who sacrificed the delights of your own childlike sense of wonder and fun, for becoming dull, banal, serious, and responsible adults and making your children's world and my world a better place to live. - 6/26/2014 1:50:15 PM
  • The concept is nice, the idea that all adults just "become" jaded and complacent is false. This guy doesn't take into consideration life's disappointments, tragedy and misery. Children are innocent they haven't been beaten down by life. It's one thing to inspire and encourage people to break from their routine and try a new perspective it's another to imply they are being lazy. - 6/18/2014 2:25:45 PM

  • Hm... I am not convinced. - 3/10/2014 11:38:14 PM
  • I agree we need to embrace the inner child. That gives us the since of wonder and awe at life...but I know too many that embrace the inner child because they think it means they no longer need to be responsible for things like a child is not responsible to pay the bills, go to work, etc... Once you hit a certain age (18) you are responsible for paying the bills etc... But we are all responsible for the choices we make. Even children are (or at least should be) held accountable for their actions. - 3/2/2014 1:42:23 PM

  • What a great reminder of how awesome God's world is, filled with wonder and delight, if only we will continue to expect it and look for it. - 2/5/2014 10:20:19 AM
  • This is so obvious in infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners. When we keep our sense of wonder we can continue to learn exponentially. Play daily! - 1/22/2014 8:10:13 AM
  • Nice video. The wonder of a child is a special thing - watching them as they learn about new things is special. Thanks!!! - 1/21/2014 7:14:35 AM
