My family has started a journey of asking questions around why we do things the way we do. Is doing something the way it has always been done mean we are doing it the best way? With a changing world, what things need to change? What things can we continue to do the same way we’ve always done?

The one area needing a little honesty is education. The question is not, should we send our kids to schools or homeschool them, although that will be a discussion for another day, the question today is, given the way things were, are and will be changing to, are we benefitting our children by educating them using methods that have been employed for decades? Should we be happy with doing something in a way that “works” or should we be looking rather towards doing something in a way that is “Best”. An interesting watch.
