Earlier this week, I posted the following statement:

…sometimes it’s 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, it’s 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 don’t stick things in the light socket.  

Or do we?
