Parenting Advice from Orville Wright

While we were at the Museum of Science and Industry, we saw the model of the Wright Brothers' plane. We've seen the same set up many times in Kitty Hawk and Ryan even recognized it. Cool! Part of the exhibit included this quotation from Orville Wright, which Brendan pointed out to me and thought it was very blogworthy (also found here):

We were lucky enough to grow up in a home environment where there was always much encouragement to children to pursue intellectual interests; to investigate whatever aroused curiosity. In a different kind of environment our curiosity might have been nipped long before it could have borne fruit.

Isn't that awesome? What a tribute to his parents. Every child should be so "lucky."

We'd love to hear your thoughts, so let's hear 'em! We're exploring serious ideas here, and think that a good intellectual discussion is a great way to fine-tune one's thoughts. Especially welcome are concrete examples from YOUR life, questions, and thoughtful challenges.

Personal attacks, spam, etc. is not welcome and will probably be deleted, unless we choose to keep them for our own amusement.
