"they're young; they heal fast"

as founder of the tinkering school, gever tulley fully admits to the fact that he puts "power tools in the hands of second graders." he also delivered an excellent talk at the TED conference last year: 5 dangerous things you should let your kid do. what are these five things? i'm so glad you asked:

1. play with fire
2. own a pocket knife

3. throw a spear
4. deconstruct appliances
4.5 break the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (yay! -- ed.)
5. drive a car

"trust me, they're going to learn things that you can't get out of playing with Dora the Explorer toys."

watch and learn:
