7-year-old Molly, recently did a TED talk on Brain development of little children, she confidently spoke about ‘Thrive By Five’ which is research done by Mindaroo on some fun games parents can do to engage with their kids.
“There was a nation wide call out for someone who could passionately and confidently say that speech in front of an audience and make it an ad for early education and I was one of those people that got picked to have ago at it and its something I’m really passionate about which is a coincidence,” she said.
Molly says the message of the talk is not about parents getting off their devices but helping their kids brain development and engaging with their kids through simple games.
Ally, Molly’s Mum, who has a background in education, says she was excited they got the opportunity to spread this message.
“It was a lot of research I had done whilst being a teacher but simplified and made so accessible for so many people and when Molly read it she read it straight away so passionately with such understanding,” Ally said.
