Yes it’s exhausting when she asks 100 questions a day, but I still want her to keep questioning things.
Which made me think of this quote from George Carlin:
“Don’t just teach your children to read… teach them to question what they read.
Teach them to question everything”
But, I don’t want them to blindly follow everyone else, and mindlessly accept whatever they’re told.
I want them to be independent thinkers. To read and to listen to the thoughts and opinions of others, and then make up their own minds about things.
I don’t want them to follow a path that someone else tells them they ‘should’ take.
I want them to gather as much information as they can and then make their own choices and decisions about the world and about life.
I want them to be open-minded.
I want them to question everything.
Even if I feel like I’ll scream if I’m asked ‘why?’ one more time today!
