I've been trying to adopt a similar approach using the Socratic method with my children.

My concern now is what happens when they go to school, which the oldest is starting next year. I'm going to have to teach him that school is like a game of make believe played with dumb people (teachers included) where people pretend things are true even when they are not.

"I'll tell you how I feel about school, Jerry: it's a waste of time. Bunch of people runnin' around bumpin' into each other, got a guy up front says, '2 + 2,' and the people in the back say, '4.' Then the bell rings and they give you a carton of milk and a piece of paper that says you can go take a dump or somethin'. I mean, it's not a place for smart people, Jerry. I know that's not a popular opinion, but that's my two cents on the issue."

A very apt quote from one of my favourite shows.
