Socrates at Nine
When I am talking to a child I have a bad habit of talking to them rather than listening. After all, we are supposed to have the wisdom to pass on to the younger generation. NPR had an interesting story about what can happen when you just listen to a 9 year old.
You will notice in the video that even the cameraman feels the need to interject from time to time. That is the nature of adults with children. Now lean back, be quiet and listen to "The Philosopher."
