Sometimes when we’re in front of a problem we cant think of a way to solve it. We end up solving it the same old way or we do the first thing that comes to our mind. It happens to the kids too. Sometimes getting aggressive is the only way they know to solve a conflict.
When we talk about creativity we’re not referring to doing crazy or rule-breaking things without a reason, we’re talking about a fundamental resource, finding a good way out, responding to situations in an active way. This resource can be learned and improved. We can force ourselves to be more creative, to change our perspective, to have a different point of view.
