Humans are born with the need to learn and are hard wired to be curious and learn when they are in a safe and comfortable environment.
We decided to entirely home educate our two youngest of four sons when they were toddlers, so as to not disturb their natural born curiosity for learning. It worked.
They were still curious and college ready when they started college while still high school age.
RH seems to think he knows what I think and feel. More than I do? I doubt it. He is just making conjectures without evidence. I am the final say on my own thinking and feelings.
Posting that humans are not born with natural curiosity with an authoritve tone does not make it so.
