Long ago before the advent of civilisation or technology, human beings have always raised kids. And you know what? The kids turned out right! No parenting workshops, books, TV shows or podcasts, just plain maternal instinct with a lot of love and affection.
Love and affection play a major role in the development of kids at all ages. As a matter of fact, there is no time a child outgrows affection. All human beings crave some sort of affirmation and a lack of it is responsible for a lot of dysfunctional adults who are a menace to society.
Just love, plain love goes a long way. Our world tends to get complex when we discuss new educational policies and methods, healthcare breakthroughs in pediatric care and technological advancements but in keeping it simple, we must remember that love and affection can never be replaced.
As a matter of fact when we discuss educational policies, healthcare and technology for our children, out of love and affection, we make bigger progress.
Ancient parenting may not had much of technology and healthcare at their disposal, yet love and affection saw them through. A product of that sort of parenting are in their late twenties to late fifties reading this.
Interestingly it is out of love that TEDxKids@Asorock Abuja conveys in 10 days because we realize that our kids are our future. We also know that the unlimited potential resident in our kids, are ingredients to creating a nation and society we are all proud of.
That’s simply why we want you and your kids to come. We also want you to invite someone as well.

It’s only ten days away, so plan your schedule to be at the Silverbird Entertainment Centre, Abuja at 10am on May 27 (Children’s Day) for the event.
You’ll have a great time with lots of ideas and you will be totally transformed and inspired to achieve greatness.
You may have no kids of your own [yet], however you are a role model because some children are watching you, so you better influence them for good.
Lots of love and affection for our kids can make a huge difference, believe me it can!
Therefore let’s shower our kids with love and affection, this is an idea worth spreading!
When & Where
TEDxkids@Asorock will be held in Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nigeria, on the 27th of May 2013 being a Children’s Day in Nigeria. The theme of our TEDx event is Precept, Purpose & Power. The date chosen for this noble event is strategic and the event being hosted in the capital territory will ignite a light in every Nigerian child and send a message to child educators, education policy makers and parents that its time the voice of every child is recognised, heard and taken seriously. Our audience will consist of kids, teenagers, teachers, policy makers and parents.
The aim is to let every child understand that with a seed of idea seated somewhere in his heart, that he has the power to nurture that idea to greatness without fear of failing.”Ideas rule the World”and there are at least seven ideas lying dormant in every child’s mind, waiting to be ignited. It will also serve as an eye opener to child educators, policy makers and parents to take up the responsibility of being a role model that children will love to emulate. It’s the responsibility of every reasonable adult to guide and help every child unleash the power that is in him…… Yes, the power to innovate, inspire, create to make the world a better place.
Our speakers will bring in principles, creativity, purpose, energy with real stories that will inspire the audience to make a change and colour their world beautiful.
