You can always learn more.

Does your child ever act like he already knows everything? Sometimes we all do, and it’s important to remember that we can learn something new every day. Try these out with your favorite “know-it-all”.

1) How long did the Hundred Years War last?
116 years

2) Which country makes Panama hats?

3) From which animal do we get cat gut?
Sheep and Horses

4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October Revolution?

The lesson to be learned is that we should all look beyond the obvious. If we challenge ourselves to do this, our children will be challenged as well. Isn’t it good to know that we never have to stop learning?
