Clemmie Stewart & Rebecca Glover were selected to present their thought provoking concept at the Rose Theatre in Kingston.
Many nodding heads and conversations followed soon after.
WE WANTED TO START A DISCUSSION...
Over a coffee at Ralph's in Surbiton two experienced pioneers and thought leaders in education questioned how best to prepare their students for the ever changing world in front of them.

DO WE NEED TO CHANGE HOW WE DO THINGS?
WHAT IS TRAMPOLINE PARENTING?
Trampoline parenting is how we can encourage our children to stretch themselves as far as they dare and then encourage them a little further. Think of it as bouncing them up into the world to experience freedom, space to grow, room to think and experiment.
We remain there beneath them, to bounce them back up when things go wrong. Each time they will bounce a little higher, a little more confidently and travel that little bit further.
WHAT SOME OF OUR GUESTS THOUGHT
Clemmie and Rebecca's talk has brought to light some fascinating issues, but, more importantly, presented "plenty of food for thought" not only for parents but also for those that have any connection to children. It is articulated on a clear professional and engaging way that makes it a very entertaining TED X.David Harkin
These two remarkable educators throw open the door on the relationships between parents, children and teachers in a refreshingly frank way. In the pursuit of the best outcomes for our offspring we should trust more in the children themselves and not be embarrassed by their occasional failures but rather embrace them.Alastair Stewart - OBE
Loving this @CStewartSHS - so true! Supporting children early in life to develop strategies to deal with ambiguity and uncertainty is essential.Cristina Taboada-Naya
