I find it strange that people feel the need to protect their children from ideas. I want to teach children critical thinking skills. There comes a point where the things they think may or may not match the things their parents think. There's nothing wrong with that. People are so threatened that their children may not see the world exactly as they do.

Dear Palaverer,

I couldnt agree more on the subject of teaching children critical thinking skills. And I have to say, I was flustered, annoyed and laughing at myself the first time I was challenged by a youngster whose skills I fostered. I was happy and extremely frustrated all at once. A delightfully uncomfortable state. And when youre a teacher, I am sure you will encounter it many times. Thanks for your comment.



Happy New Year!!
