用自己喜欢的方式跟孩子一起成长 | 晓燕 黄 | TEDxHangzhouSalon

我今天要讲女儿的故事,我的女儿谢小想今年12周岁,她小学毕业的礼物是两本海豚出版社出版的图书,总共八万五千字。我想如果我不是真心热爱阅读和写作,我恐怕很难牺牲自己那么长的时间来陪伴她这样成长。如果她不是在阅读和写作这件事上能够持续地得到乐趣和正向反馈,她也很难在这么长时间里持续去做这样的一件事。读书、旅行、写字是我的爱好和特质,而这些特质却用了另一种方式在另一个生命身上得到了另一种形式的延续。有时候我想我没有为了“妈妈”这个称呼而改变自己,反而因为我自己的特有的光芒,让妈妈这个词更“熠熠生辉”。 对生命充满好奇,爱好广泛,喜欢旅行的有趣妇女。 《给每粒米取个名字》公众号主编 米粒作家俱乐部与每粒米文创联合创始人,其团队致力于创作反映女性真实生活的文字与绘画作品。 一位古灵精怪已出版了两本书的少女谢小想的妈。当妈后穿着一双夹脚拖鞋穷游了三十余个国家,眺望过北极圈午夜的月亮和恒河河畔的日出,包着头巾在伊朗开车,在撒哈拉的沙漠里过夜,在加勒比海浮潜,探访巴勒斯坦难民营,也曾从一万二千英尺的高空跳伞一跃而下。 This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
