Enhance Productivity and Efficiency with Stephen’s Innovation Insights

Innovation Insights by Stephen Shapiro

I, and others, like to “share” our advice with the world. But maybe the best advice comes from children. Here are some insightful and hilarious thoughts from kids. These were provided to me by Eolake Stobblehouse who translated them from Danish.

Making your bed is a waste of time.

Don’t ask your three-year-old brother to hold a tomato.

Don’t wear polka-dotted underpants under white shorts.

Don’t drink anything when you’re upside down.

Don’t tease your sister when she is holding a baseball bat.

A puppy has bad breath, even after a mint.

Don’t tell your mother her diet isn’t working.

Wear a hat when feeding seagulls.

Don’t eat prunes.

If you want to draw on the wall, do it behind the sofa.

If you want a cat, start by asking for a horse.

Listen to your brain; it has a lot of information.

You need to put your hand up, otherwise adults don’t listen to you.

Don’t sneeze when somebody is cutting your hair.

When your dad is angry and asks “do you think I’m stupid?” then don’t tell him what you think.

When mom is upset with Dad, don’t let her comb your hair.

Don’t let a dog stand guard over your food.

Keep asking “why” until you understand it.

  1. Great stuff. I think half of these comments came from one of my three kids. A couple that must not have made the top 20 is “Why take a shower? I am only going to get dirty again tomorrow!” “It is OK for your father to give you a head butt but you can’t call your father a butt head.” “It is also OK for your father to tell you to suck it up but you can’t say that sucks.” And “don’t ask your little sister to sing Yankee Doodle y substituting a letter “F” for the first letter of every word.”

  2. CHILDREN’S WISDOM IS WAY BEYOND MY IMAGINATION,AND IT MAKE ME REALIZE THAT I DID ANALYZE TOO MUCH IN MY DAILY LIFE,BUT SEEMS LIKE CHILDREN ARE SMARTER THAN ME,I GUESS I’LL GO INVITE A CHILD TO COFFEE SHOP AND CHAT A LITTLE BIT

  3. I was damn near rolling on the floor laughing. I have two kids, a 4 year old and a 21 month old. The last two comments about when mom and dad are upset or mad really reminded me of my 4 year old. Children these days are amazing and I truly feel that we underestimate them and their intelligence.

    My children have inspired me so much that I started my own good advice site, engineermylife.com. Hopefully these tips can help, even if they are not this funny.
