In an age where we are more connected than ever through and with technology, it’s important that families leverage it to learn, laugh and have fun together.
If you’ve resolved to try new ways to engage with your children in 2018, a good start is finding something you can both enjoy.
The ABC’s Short & Curly is a podcast designed to get children and families thinking and brainstorming together.
According to the ABC, Short & Curly is a “fast-paced fun-filled ethics podcast for kids and their parents, with questions and ideas to really get you thinking. It asks curly questions about animals, technology, school, pop culture and the future”.
One of the latest episodes proposes the following scenario: “An out-of-control train is heading straight for a group of people who don’t know they are about to be hit. You, as the driver, have some life and death decisions to make. What will you do?”
The podcast is presented by Carl Smith – a science enthusiast and ABC reporter working for Radio National and ABC Science: Molly Daniels – an Australian actress, film maker and podcaster; and Matt Beard – from the Ethics Centre, who is the program’s resident philosopher.
