Kendall--I completely agree! Dating in third grade is a little young...we are losing the innocence and playfulness of youth!The examples you gave from your personal life were relatable and shocking, and kept me very interested in what you had to say.
Your speech was really cool. The topic was actually uniquely interesting, was something that I was unaware of before your talk.
Kendall: Wow this is really a problem! Your point really hit home when you mentioned eight year olds getting Botox! I remember that when I was eight I was playing on my friend's swingset, not wearing inappropriate clothing or drinking. Great message!
Kendall: Your topic is really strong. I know so many little girls who want to be wearing make up who have done so much more then they should for their age. My little brother is exactly like your brother also. He has grown up way to fast. I think all your pictures have a huge affect and I like how they are ALL picture and mostly no words. It just helps your affect so uch more. Overall i think you did a great job!
Kendall- Great Topic! Its a very big problem. I loved your story about Scotty, it helped connect the topic to my life and the life of people who have younger siblings.
I personally would've never thought about this kind of topic for a TED talk, which made it all the more interesting. I will end up taking something away from the presentation.
Kendall- I agree with you. Let kids be kids. The presure to fit in is way to extreem in this society. Your talk makes me want to go and help children be who they want to be.
Kendall-Great job! I loved all your pictures it really helped your point. It opened my eyes and made me think about what will happen in the future. I liked how you told us that we need to think of our children and how we want them to act. Good job!!
Kendall,Great theme. You had a lot of evidence to support it, too. Your pictures were good and supportive, as well. I also like that you weren't afraid to get personal, such as the story with your brother.You were rather stagnant in giving your speech. You stood in one spot and kept your arms at your side. I think a bit more movement would keep the audience more engaged.Great job, and great message!-Matthew Cheney
Her opening sentences really caught my attention. I think it is an interesting topic and made me think of little girls. I like the connections because the made a lot of sense and I understood her point. I thought about my childhood and the difference between the two ages. I loved her topic because she understood her topic and why it mattered to her. I also liked that she explained each of her points.
Kendall- I see your subject in the world every day. I agree strongly with this. Great topic. Thank you for talking about toddlers & tiaras. That show is disgusting. Your message needs to be seen by everyone. Great job, wonderful examples, and this really made me feel your message. Wonderfully done.
Kendall's TED Talk was interesting. I never thought of childhood this way. I think it is true that children are growing up too fast and media influences this. It was a fresh perspective on childhood.
Kendall- You had very powerful message. I really enjoyed listening to your presentation because you spoke confidently and never got caught up in what you were trying to say.
Kendall's topic of growing up too fast is I feel very important in society. Kids these days really do grow up too fast. I felt her slides were extremely meaningful, because they showed the scary reality of what these little girls and boys have done to themselves in order to "grow up." Her story about her brother dating a girl proves that although it may be the parents pushing their kids to grow up, like in beauty pageants, there are also those kids who are too anxious to grow up that they rush into it. It was a very good talk and she did a great job in staying on topic and getting to her point of what matters.
I really liked Kendall's talk. Her topic was able to relate to all of use because many of us have sibling, and many of us have just seen this around. She did a very good job and I liked what she was talking about.Great job Kendall.
Kendall, your topic was very individual and you spoke fluidly and never seemed to stutter or be uncertain of what you were saying. The pictures were a very good supplement to your presentation.
Your absolutely true and im glad that you decided to bring this topic up. Your sense of humor with the talk combined with the pictures of young kids trying to act all big has spread your idea of "what matters" to me also. Good talk.
Kendall,I thought that your TED talk was amazing! You did a great job of showing how kids are growing up to fast. I never looked at how fast kids grow up!
Kendall - I thought you had a great point, and identified a major problem in today's youth. The way they behave and grow up is changing everyday, and you pinpointed what has happened. Great Job!
Kendall- You connected to the audience very well, making us remember our own childhood, and talking about the future and how even our children would be, making us think about all aspects of children growing up. You ask us if we truly want children to act like this, and we all automatically think, "NO!". You made the TED very realistic and down to Earth.
Kendall, I really enjoyed your talk! I totally agree that kids should hold onto their childhood! Some people just take things to extremes and it is scary! Thank you for talking about this! Great job!
I think your ending was good, and how you tied all you're ideas together at the end. I also thought it was cool that you had a personal story in you're talk.
Kendall- I thought the TED Talk was amazing. I can see that thing happening with my brother and I worry on what is happening to the kids of our generation.
I completly agree with Kendal. Little kids shouldnt have to act like adults. They should grow up slowly and have a fun time.
I totally agree with your presentation. My favorite part was when you talked about Toddlers in Tiaras. That show is so sad! Good job!
