…sometimes its tempting to simply tell children the answer to a question rather than taking the time to guide them through their own exploration. When you have the time, its worth the investment to watch the joy that comes with a new discovery.
The reality of life is that, sometimes, we need to just tell kids how it is rather than investigating possible outcomes: i.e. we dont stick things in the light socket.
Or do we?
