- Bertrand Russell
A successful father is not more successful than his children.
SCHOOL TEACHER IS NOT THE ONLY ONE EDUCATING YOUR CHILD
A HUMAN BEING CAN'T BE A SCHOLAR OF EVERYTHING
CHILDREN LEARN MORE HONESTLY THAN ADULTS
QUESTIONS SHOULD BE REDIRECTED RATHER THAN AVOIDED
The child is father of the man.This tiny father becomes a pain in the ass of the big father by the "genuine" issues he keeps raising all the time. For many parents, the inquisitive nature of children is one of the most irritating things about them. Even very tolerant fathers and mothers sometimes get confused, and consequentially harsh, about how to answer a question they never imagined or dared to ask.
The solution is not in aversion. It is in channelization. As we said, we're not all knowing. I believe even Einstein's genius wouldn't be able to answer some "questions" of his children. So, we must learn to redirect the curiosity of our child in some better way. We can refer him to someone else if we don't know the answer. Or if we know, and it's not the right time for the child to learn it, we may tell him that he'll know it by himself after some time. But scolding and forbidding to ask questions is not good at all.
Happy parenting. Happy education. Happiest next generation!
