- Producer23/08/2016Imaginative Ideas- Time to ExploreI am overwhelmed with the idea of this buzz. In fact I feel it is the culmination of my life experiences. We talk so much about ideas generation, but very little about imaginative ideas even though they would provide us with unlimited...

Serio CPC, CeMA- "Failure - as we've often seen with inventors and writers, for example - can often push our imagination into overdrive (once we've accepted that failure). Causing us to think as they say 'outside the box". Brilliant27/08/2016 #74 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYour comment about failure, Irene @Irene Hackett, is so true. Failure - as we've often seen with inventors and writers, for example - can often push our imagination into overdrive (once we've accepted that failure). Causing us to think as they say 'outside the box'; and consider options, ideas and plans we otherwise would never have considered. Thanks, again, to Ali @Ali Anani for a post which stimulates our minds and ramps up our imagination!27/08/2016 #69 Ali Anani#68 One thing I know for sure @Peter van Doorn- my right and left brains welcome being connected with you. An idea crossed my mind: when we swing between cycles like pendulums the numbers that help are complex numbers with the real and imaginary components. May be it is the same with imagination and knowledge.27/08/2016 #64 Dale Masters@Ali Anani I saw the first picture---and was stunned when I realised its edges look exactly what I see before---and during---a really bad migraine attack. The only difference is the the migraine image ripples though the same colours in sequence, durtng which I can see (in pulses) the beating of my heart.27/08/2016 #63 Ali Anani#62 You comment is flowing with the right questions dear sister @Irene Hackett. I loved this "that place where the one who 'sees' that which is not - arises from a much deeper level of awareness that may be far more 'real' than what the mind calls reality". I shall put it in this way: our brains are limited by reality; our imagination aren't limited because they see beyond reality. With imagination we see what doesn't exist and then our brains try to turn imaginations into reality.25/08/2016 #60 Sara JacoboviciI regret posting my comment before I had the opportunity to read all the comments from your readers @Ali Anani. I look forward to the time I will be able to do so as your Buzzes always produce the best discussions. In the meantime I offer this "out of the comment box" comment. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/exploring-imaginative-ideas
- 07/08/2016TO DO: Build Your Child's Imagination: 10 Ways Here.
""I think when you present the idea of imagination to parents, they are generally in favor of it," says Thomas Armstrong, author of Awakening Your Child's Natural Genius ($15, J.P. Tarcher). "Yet when you probe a little deeper and center in on how much time parents and teachers wish to allocate to imagination in the schools, you find a very different attitude." Of course, imagination is something we should all favor. Child-development experts unanimously celebrate the benefits of a healthy imagination. A child with a good imagination is happier and more alert, better able to cope with life's twists and turns, and more likely to grow into a well-adjusted, secure adult."
- 07/08/2016DID YOU KNOW? Raising educated children is not just about "reading."
In the USA, career success & high school graduation are linked to how well a child reads by Third Grade (i.e., age 8 or so).
Amazing Factoid: 2/3 of USA 3rd-graders fail to read well.
This 2014 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) paper states:
"A new AAP policy statement recommends that pediatric providers advise parents of young children that reading aloud and talking about pictures and words in age-appropriate books can strengthen language skills, literacy development and parent-child relationships."
Comments07/08/2016 #2 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#1 You got it! Reminds me of "Quality Time" with your children. Hmm. How much "Quality Time" do we spend actually looking into her eyes? What if your child was your "Job" as in, "Career?" Would you, as an Entrepreneur, or would your Boss like the amount of "Quality Time" you spend at work? Let's translate that thought into the brainwork, network, spiders, gliders, and growth of our "mini-Me-BeeZ."
- 06/08/2016Children do have avid imaginations....and parents can help to add to it, too! Here's a place for stories, memories, advice for future Beez who have Baby Beez...and some of your own inventions that you had when you were small.
Because all children know that there is a man on the moon, yet not all adults can actually see his face.
And all children also know that there are monsters under the bed, yet all adults know that is pure folly. "Oh golly, I used to think that, too!"
P.S. So is this a picture of a flower? ...or is it a bird? ...or is it a 'birlower' or a 'flird?' Also stirring Authors Along!
