“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” – Sir Ken Robinson
I have watched this TED talk multiple times in my life including before my children were in school and multiple times after. I remember that before my eldest went to school I would watch the video and nod agreeing with the things Ken would say. I now have 2 children in school and when I watch this talk I’m still nodding but I also want to jump through the screen, give Ken a high 5 and share this video with all the people involved in putting together our education system.

I have seen quite a few of these sort of questionnaires getting around social media and I love reading the responses of other people’s children, not only can it be hilarious but also very insightful. I sat down with my 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter at different times and asked them the below questions. I was actually really surprised by some of their responses and it was super precious to learn a little more about them as well as share some giggles with them.
