Q is for Question


Six Sentences From Atop My Soapbox

 ~QUESTION~
Use the mind God gave you!
 
"Don't ask so many questions, just do what you are told!"  How many times have you been told that or said it to someone else?  Children are born inquisitive, asking questions is how they learn; while at times their endless questioning can grow tiresome, if we encourage those questions we lead them to a lifetime love of learning.  I question everything, not so much to challenge as to understand, and to see if it rings true for me based on my own understanding of life.  If we don't question, if we blindly accept what we are told to think and do, the chances are great that we will be lead astray by someone eager to take advantage of our compliant nature.  Find the courage to ask questions!

  1. This is so true!!! Reading a book now that is an effort to further seek to answer my own questioning. Blindly following another's dictates is dangerous. All there is to it.

  2. Wonderful post Josie. Co-incidentally I chose the same word for Q. Once we stop questioning, we stop learning.

  5. Questions and natural curiosity are how they learn, then we sit the children in a classroom for 7 hours a day and tell them to be quiet and do as they are told, and wonder why they lose that love for learning. Keep that inquisitive nature! It will serve you well in life.

  6. Having to figure out how to answer their questions can be a learning experience. Untethered Realms

  7. This is great advice. I question everything and make my own decisions. I am teaching my child to do the same thing. We can't make informed decisions if we haven't explored all the avenues. Stopping by on the A to Z.

  10. My son used to drive me nuts with questions but I never told him not to ask. I might have encouraged him to find something to do with his time but I answered all his questions. I'd be a pretty big hypocrite to tell him not to ask questions when I can't keep myself from doing it.
