More on yes, less on no
How many times do we stop children's initiatives, limit imagination due to lack of time, energy or bad humor? The ideas presented by the children do not have to be harmful or dangerous in any way, and because of the cleaning vision behind them, or simply the need for too much involvement, we often give up them?
