Keep asking yourself "why?"
Explain the alternatives
Give an example
Do you think that school children should be encouraged to have their ownideas, or is it more important for them to learn what their teachers givethem?
I think that we should definitely allow children to be creative and havetheir own ideas. (why?) Children need to develop the ability to think forthemselves and solve problems (why?) because as adults they will not always havesomebody to guide them or tell them what to do. (alternatives?) If we don'tallow children to have their own ideas, they will be less successful in theadult world; they will be too reliant on others. (example?) A doctor, forexample, might encounter a situation that he or she hasn't been trained for, butwill still be expected to make a decision that could save someone's life.
