Growing up, my dad wouldn’t just answer a question from the kids. He would follow it up with background info, reasons why, and ask us related questions. It always stuck with me and I find myself “dadsplaining” things to my kids. It’s a good, impromptu moment for teaching and getting the kids to think creatively and analytically.
I also try to do it with co-workers, but I’m sensitive not to force it on people like I force it on my kids.
