Sometime after we learn to talk, we learn to question.
No, I’m not asking why,
I’m telling you that the question we all ask is:
As parents we’ve been driven to near-tears by the persistent toddler who wants an answer to: Why?
Yet I’ve learned that the more I ask that question, the wiser I become.
And people think you are pretty smart too when you ask: Why?
Unless that is all you say, so here’s how to ask the same question in statement form:
Tell me more.
If we would stop trying to impress others with how much we know, and turn it around with:
Tell me more…
Our worlds will open up.
Try it for a few weeks.
