52 Teachers, 52 Lessons #18: Just Answer The Question

This week's entry comes from Sandra Kee, who describes herself as an "unschooling mom of two (now aged 12 and 10), former Montessori teacher former Waldorf and Enki teacher trainer."

Just answer the question.

Don't tell them what you think they should know. Don't tell them more than they want to know. Don't answer some question you suppose they are asking.

Observe them deeply and answer what they are burning to know. That is the lesson they will remember.
