“ If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales. ”
Don't just teach your children to read... Teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.
Every child does have the necessary intelligence to live his life fully. You just create an atmosphere for him to grow into his intelligence, rather than imposing your nonsense upon him.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Unfortunately, you are not sending your children to school because you want them to learn, but because you want them to earn.
Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.
