Show And Tell- A Game For Kids

These are some random thoughts that I decided to put into print before I head out for Friday Night Adventures.

Since the summer of 2009, I have been focusing on finding best ways to communicate what I am seeing in regards to behavior, as more and more of what I see resembles childish behavior for grown ups.

With that said, I ask if anyone reading this has ever participated in the game known as Show And Tell during their childhood years? If so, I would then ask if it resemles much of what you see on online social network settings, where the actual website would be acting as the classroom or school setting, and the users as the students, each with the goal of showing the rest of the class audience what they have to show, along with a short story about that which they brought?

I am asking myself this same question, as I may also be guilty of the affair, and I am seeking ways to make it a good use of time, energy, and resources.

Perhaps, if it is for some form of educational purpose, meaning an individual can find something beneficial in observing, then it would have some value, yet if only for the sake of feeling important and being the center of attention, well, I would probably have to ask Dr. Phil about the causes behind these types of behaviors.

Show and tell is the process of showing an audience something and telling them about it, predominantly in North America. It is usually done in a classroom as an early elementary school technique for teaching young children the skills of public speaking. Usually, a child will bring an item from home and will explain to the class why they chose that particular item, where they got it, and other relevant information.

In closing, interestingly enough , General Electric actually produced a toy known as the

in the early 70’s, which was a televison set with a record player on top, which may have offered a glimpse into the future of multimedia, and its most frequent usage in the present decade and century.

While I agree that is is an excellent idea to keep a young at heart type of demeanor when appropriate, I disagree with the idea that it should come at the expense of growth and maturity.

Again, it is just my opinion, and I am always interested in hearing yours.
