Not a stupid question

The other day I was having a coffee with some friends, one of whom has a child going to school in August. To preserve that child’s privacy we shall name the child Tom. So Tom say’s to his mum “Will I still be called Tom when I go to school?”

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. But I don’t mean in a funny way. I commented to the mum that I thought it was great the child had asked that question and how much I love that stage.

Children at that stage should questions everything in life and everything about themselves, and I view it as a sign of an inquisitive mind. When you’re four there should not be any stupid questions.
