I’m unsure if the following is the best thing I was taught, but I think it is the one thing I was taught that gets used the most frequently. I am sure I went through the stage all young kids go through of incessantly asking “why?” No matter what, I was always encouraged to ask questions. Questioning and evaluating information and their sources is a valuable skill to have as an adult. It is one I use daily to evaluate my news sources and even references I may use in knitting and designing.
