Blessing Not Stressing - Happy Parenting


Jul 9, 2017

Explaining Magic and Misdirection Can Be Eye-Opening

Sleight of hand and misdirection (sometimes called magic) are fascinating to kids and easy to teach.  The dexterity required may sometimes seem too much.  However, kids are happy to buy into these tricks and thus set the bar low.  While teaching a skill like this can help you be a "cool parent", it is much better to use it as an introduction to life lessons.  A few minutes of instruction can provide you a way to discuss topics like believing what you see, patience with others, and avoiding being fooled by others.  This episode provides a combination of a new skill, entertaining your kids, and a little education.  What could be better?
