|I had a professor, years ago, tell me that one mark of intelligence was the use of tools other than the way they were intended to be used. I thought that definition would show up in other places in my life, but it hasn't. So here I share it with all of you. Try not to say "That's not what that's for" too quickly—your child might be about to do something quite intelligent.|
"If you want to be creative, stay in part a child, with the creativity and invention that characterizes children before they are deformed by adult society."
—Piaget, quoted by Deb Lewis
