Wow - except for me not having children, you and I really have a lot in common. This post connected with me on many levels.

Yes, I agree. I have a friend who always thinks outside of the box - in fact that's his skill. I'm not sure he's suited to a 'regular' education, but he certainly is smart. He'll often give you something to think about - often a different perspective. This is just as valuable, if not more so, than the people who can answer questions and follow directions the best.

I think I started to think for myself quite late on really, but I'm so glad I do. It's about the confidence to ask the questions and to be prepared to admit you don't understand something, or that you disagree with it.
