A baby’s first game is peek-a-boo. The parent conceals their eyes. This creates tension in the child to wonder. Then the adult reveals their eyes to hopefully witness a smile.
But along the way to adulthood a childs curiosity is often eroded.
I’ve noticed that the longer someone is in school the less they want to learn when they get out.
We kill curiosity when we are forced to learn what doesn’t interest us. When learning becomes work instead of play.
