Promoting Fascination (Curiosity, Tolerance)

Yesterday morning, she was getting ready for school, and I posed an open-ended question. Not sure what prompted it.

Me – “Isn’t it interesting how adults believe such different things?”

Her – “Yeah.”

That was it. Just a question to think about how differently people think.

Minutes later we were in the kitchen, having just had a discussion about Labor Day

Her – “Why do we have holidays?”

I gave her the best off the cuff answer I could about people celebrating the passage of time or important events related to what they believe or cherish. The important part, though, was her questioning not me answering.

Hoping to keep that curiosity going and to nurture it through her childhood…
