"What Do You Want to Talk about?"--p4c Lessons in the Family
Albertini, Tamara
Educational Perspectives, v44 n1-2 p51 2012
The author was surprised by the question her son Peter asked her, "What do you want to talk about?" This is the first time her son is inquiring about something that she would like to share with him. No matter how often she hears it, it always makes her smile. It isn't just the question. It's also the very earnest face that Peter wears when he puts the question to her and her husband. He has a way of conveying to them that he is genuinely interested in what they have to say. She and her husband finally understood where that "What do you want to talk about?" question came from. It came straight out of the P4C sessions at Waikiki School, and Peter had adapted it to their family conversations!
