    Why kids lose their creativity once they enter school?

    I think that can happen and it maybe be because of school schedules.  too much regimentation.  "Here child, it is 1pm time to be creative and do art."  I think in these cases kids need to be encouraged at home to create what they want when they want (within reason of course).

    I agree with duffsmom..Teachers have a schedule to follow and everyone has to be on the same page so they can move to the next level.Even so many fall behind and some never catch up.
    Everything is so NEW..and OVERWHELMING to the children.
    As a grandparent I have been lucky to be there for mygrandchildren, ...Interaction is important ...I feel children should engage in  school activities when possible, they can  benefit by joining school teams, such as cross country, chess club..etc...this can help add to their creativity.Outside/afterschool activities include Martial Arts, Music lessons..hobbies..all of these help support creativity..

    I would tend to think that they dont completely loose thier creativity, but in fact rather they become more uniformed to the taboos and societal norms. With every state sponsored insitution come a standardization that permeates through the youths that attend

    There are a lot of factors why the kids lose their creativity when they enter school. We can't avoid that competition happens all the time; perhaps, the kid gets bored of himself waiting for the other teachers to come or get inside. Being creative is not an assurance that you're really great because you formally study so that you will know the truth.

    This question has no simple answer. As a professional daydreamer and as someone who has spent a fair amount of time studying the process of creativity, I can tell you that, in a nutshell, creativity can't be lost. Like our bodies, it just gets soft and flabby if you don't take care of it.

    First off, let's get this out of the way, some people aren't creative. Their minds don't process that way and going to science class could not have robbed them of something they never had. I consider myself very creative, but I waved goodbye to anything math-related long ago, simply because I didn't have the desire nor the affinity to pursue it... I suck at it is what I'm trying to get across.

    That being said, structure, in my opinion, is creative poison. Whether it be school, work, or anything that locks you mind down without allowing it to explore the fantastical. I'm living proof, I stopped writing for a few years while I worked in a professional environment, and I had a bit of an adjustment period when I started up again. Creativity is no different than body building, cycling, pottery, kung fu or whatever else you can think of, if you don't practice, it will eventually hamper your skill. It;s not gone it's just rusty.

    So that was my absurdly long-winded way of saying practice makes perfect. If you have it in you, you can't lose it.
