I have always like the quote that "Knowledge is Power", I believe that is so true! When my kids were young, they all went through that stage of asking WHY? about everything. It seemed like no matter what the answer was, the Whys kept coming.
Now even my granddaughter did that too. Some things never change, but do we really want them too? Don't we want them to ask as many questions as they can? Don't we want them to be curious and ever learning? I think we do, so we will just have to be more patient when the next set of WHYS come along, and remember that we should probably be asking more questions ourselves.
"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
"There is a time to teach and a time to learn, childhood is the time for learning in the home, and it passes quickly. As mothers, we must learn to make this time effective." ~ Barbara Smith
"Children should be cherished with the strongest bonds of affection. No sacrifice is too great to protect our families from evil and to rear them in righteousness." ~ Camilla E. Kimball
