Creating Creative Kids
Every employer claims they want people who are ‘creative.’ But ‘creativity’ is a vague and misunderstood term. In fact, creativity is simply problem solving. You already use creativity in your relationships, parenting, career choices, and personal well-being. New research shows how creative breakthroughs happen. It’s a skill that can be taught. Rick Green shows how the creative process works and why people with ADHD seem more creative. He then lays out simple strategies to enhance and unleash creativity in any area of life.
After graduating with a BSc. in Physics, Rick Green became a comedy writer, actor, director, and producer.
