Adults Who Have the Habit of Underestimating Kids Must Watch this Video!

Sometimes it's just cute to watch kids acting like adults. However, when it comes to the idea of being open-minded about what we can learn from them - it often hits the wall. I was blown-away by Adora Svitak's lecture not just because of the way she presented the matter; the way she seemed to look very intellectual (which in fact, she really is) and how she talked in a charismatic way; but it's more of the profound wisdom this girl has begotten. 

I am not suggesting per se and neither this video intends that everyone should raised or guide children in a specific, monotomous manner to create such behaved, focus, and intellectual kids like Adora.

Given the fact that I got dizzy just watching this video made me conclude that there's a 5% possibility I would ever go on a slingshot ride. Nevertheless, bungee jumping has been on my bucket list since I was in high school - so for the sake of making dreams come true, I would still do it.

Anyway, I'm not sure if any amusement parks and activity centers here in the Philippines…
