Colin Easton is a writer, hobby photographer and avid people watcher. As the creator of The Stranger Project 2014, he goes out into the streets of Vancouver, meeting one stranger each day, and finds out about that person’s story. He then writes about the encounter. "It’s about connection,” says Colin. “I wanted to see what would happen if I stopped walking past people and actually started to reach out and try to connect with strangers. To open my mind, my heart and listen, free from any judgement.” What started as a personal social experiment has led Colin on a life-changing journey.
Parenting should be Fun & Easy. Get all the hard work done when they're little then relax & enjoy. Yes, there's some tweaking during the teen years, but otherwise ... easy.
My methods are based on 40+ years of experience of working with & raising kids. I use what works, not what people think “should” work. If the respect isn't mutual, it's useless.
Be the Fun Parent, not the Friend. What's the difference? Parents discipline, Friends don't.
I help parents find their Inner Leader so their children turn to them instead of their peers for guidance.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSFU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSFU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
