“Those who know how to think need no teachers.” - Ghandi
It's amazing when we see a child discover a new way of thinking or seeing the world. They have ownership over it and need little to no direction. This discovery of a thought process (the why bother) is so much different than the discovery of a skill outside of thought. Without the thought and context behind a discovery you are always in need of a teacher to remind you to use the skill. This may be sufficient for the short term... long term though, my do we want to see thinkers!
