“Daddy, what is that yellow stuff they are spraying on the plane?”
“Daddy, what are those big white things for?”
“Daddy, will we still be able to see the ground when we take off?”
“Daddy, do you think it is snowing in Toronto yet? Will there be snow when we get there?”
I heard all of these questions this morning from a boy, about 7 years old, sitting behind me while taking a flight with his family from Thunder Bay. They were on their way to Miami, via Toronto.
Then the Mom, who was sitting across the aisle, said, “Why can’t you be that interested in your school work?”
What if parents asked questions like, “Why can’t you learn about things you are interested in, like this, in school?”
What if parents asked those questions all the time?
Would it impact the pace of change?
