Hi, sorry for overstepping my self-set deadline when it comes to posting (3 days between maximum).
I was just having a discussion with a colleague and we drifted into the subject of bringing up children… I told him about my up-bringing where my father taught me to think with the mind of a skeptic. Instead of just giving me the answers to my questions, he taught me how to find out the answer for myself, or sometimes he proposed a counter-question. This way taught me how to find the answers to my questions, and to not always believe what I’m told.
In my mind, this was a great way. Today I’m over-the-average when it comes to intelligence. I’m interested in Science, history and technology. Simply because to master these topics you need to use your brain, so you don’t have to deal with sub-intelligent people automatically. 🙂
If anyone has any other suggestions on great protocols to bring up children, please share. 🙂
