And that is why, whether it’s about ratios or relationships, math or mates, your children are not likely to learn it just because you told it to them. As a matter of fact, it’s likely you DID tell it to them and they didn’t even hear you.

They must climb the cliffs, brave the seas and climb the volcano on their own, in their own pursuit of what is good to know.
