Learning is for everyone
To raise a curious, thoughtful youngster, show her that learning doesn’t end when you grow up. Here’s how:
- Share your discoveries. You’ve probably asked your child after school, “What did you learn today?” Why not tell her what you’ve learned, too? You could take turns around the dinner table sharing one thing you know now that you didn’t know when you woke up.
- Ask questions. Have you ever wondered why geese fly in a V formation or whether an avocado is a fruit or a vegetable? Try asking your youngster. If she doesn’t know either, look it up in a book or online. She’ll see that you want to learn new things—even though you’re an adult!
