Even if the children put forward unrealistic ideas, they should also give them appropriate encouragement, so as to protect the children's imagination and stimulate their intelligence. .
Early childhood is the period when children's imagination is most abundant. The imagination formed by children before school age is the basis for their innovative thinking throughout their lives. Therefore, parents should protect and guide their children's imagination.
