I can't remember where I first read this quote, but it struck me as exactly the approach we are trying to take with our homeschool unschooling journey. Teaching the kids how to get answers to their questions is the greatest skill we could ever teach them.

I enjoyed the comments in the above linked post so much. It's funny how with the internet we expect to get to the bottom of these mysteries--and with minimal effort. It's kind of cool that this one is not solved!
