Fair Isn't Equal

How many times have you heard “Hey, but that’s not fair?” from a child, teen or adult for that matter. And the response is often an unsatisfying “ Well, life isn’t fair” What does that mean? Sounds like punishment! At Think:Kids we are often confronted by parents and teachers with the challenge
of “if I don’t make it fair the kids will never go for it.” Our whole model isn’t about everyone getting the same thing, but we believe more importantly getting what you need. We all have different needs and what is important is that we get our needs met NOT that we are all treated the same all the time.

This article describes an activity that is great for parents, teachers and anyone trying to explain why fair doesn’t mean equal and shouldn’t! Try it!
