Adam Grant on Why Being Exposed to Arguments Helps Kids Become More Creative Adults
New York Times best-selling author and Wharton professor Adam Grant discusses a hot parenting topic in this animated video: arguing in front of kids. He had believed that parents should not argue in front of their children; but then he read research that shows children who are exposed to arguments are far more creative. The Wright brothers, for example, regularly argued with their father and each other. When children are exposed to problems that are complicated, they learn to embrace differences and think for themselves. This independent thinking is pathway to a creative mind!
