My Response

When a child says ‘I’m bored,’ I quote Agatha Christie:

“We owe most of our great inventions and most of the achievements
of genius to idleness – either enforced or voluntary. The human
mind prefers to be spoon-fed with the thoughts of others, but
deprived of such nourishment it will, reluctantly, begin to
think for itself – and such thinking, remember, is original
thinking and may have valuable results.”

Yeah, they’ve learned not to ask.
