Most adults argue so intensely about things they only know a little about. Do we really know all the details of the economy, health care reform, why we are at war or even where there should be bike lanes. We think we are so right, but most of us really don't know anything. We all get only a slice of information, We don't even know what the whole pie looks like.
Yesterday I took my kids and their friends to Prospect Park. An aimless bike ride. We wound up at the Boat House. After a short discussion they decided to play "museum" and then go to the zoo. The kids had all the facts. They worked it all out.
Wouldn't it be nice if adults could work thinks out this well.
