Of all people, perhaps the ones who have the most privileged view over what the future will look like are school teachers. They are the ones who see every day the future generations and there have been accounts that kids might have lost some concept of privacy due to the social networks and their “open” nature.
And it’s a shame because it has been a concept that took hundreds of years to evolve, just for it to go away within a generation as well as all off the freedoms it entails.
So I think that one of our focus could be perhaps on teaching kids and parents the value of privacy. I’ve had requests from school teachers to provide this sort of education, so the opportunity is there.
Recently I’ve been in a talk that gave me a very interesting idea on how to approach kids and parents about this topic:
All the best kid’s stories are the ones in which the parent’s are not around, from Pippi Longstocking to Harry Potter.
Why is that? It’s because that’s when the kids feel the most freedom of explore and play. I’m not saying that the parents shouldn’t be around at all keeping an eye. But I think this can pass well the idea that the kids need space to grow.
But this is just an idea
