Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Diversity! ~ In education and Life! ~ The Next Generation Leahy

Diversity! ~ In education and Life!
Our interview continues with The Next Generation Leahy …
"Sharing Knowledge"
"Having Fun"
The Next Generation Leahy with
Ontario Festivals Visited
The children do enjoy “Skype” and other Social Media outlets. We were able to ask the kids if they felt, given all their talent, if they ever shared some of their experiences with other children from around their community, Region, Nation, World. The children told us they love “family gatherings”. The parents believe that most people need and will get attention in life, positive or negative. They hope that the positive attention their children receive will allow them to share with others, who in turn, will learn to experience life a positive.
As parents, both Doug and Jennifer believe it is their responsibility to help the children build confidence and share the happiness and joy with others. They realize that it is their job to provide the tools and opportunities for their children. Some School Boards today have been de-emphasizing the arts and music programs and the Leahy Family feels this is very detrimental.

"Sharing Knowledge ~ Having Fun"
Jennifer feels schools today need diversity! Children should be allowed to express themselves, through arts, music, theatre and more. She tells us that a lot of emphasis is on sports and “competition”, and “financial gain” through “winning sports competitions”. It is true we hear some people believe “as long as you participated, had fun, that’s all that matters”. Yet, we all know there are those in society who say “win at any cost”. Jennifer said that some children are encouraged to “knock someone down and beat them at the game”. The Leahy family loves sports, they couldn’t live without sports, and it is a large component of their lives, not to misinterpret what they are sharing with us. They feel you should not “put all your eggs in one basket”.
Stay tuned for great insights and more “INSIDE SCOOP” with The Next Generation Leahy ~ Music affects culture!
