When I think of the effort it took to extract myself from group-think and learn to evaluate all the information, rather than only considering that which reinforced the group’s position, I consider my daughter and her development. How do I teach her that she does not have to feel guilty for thoroughly considering information available to her, and coming to a different conclusion from me?
My Grandmother used to say this little verse to me all the time. I can’t for the life of me figure out who she was talking about. I was a little angel. 😉
