I once read an interview with a pastor who said that the most important thing a parent can say to a child is often, "I don't know."

His words rattled me as a parent. Wasn't my job to fill my children with knowledge? Wasn't my role to pass down truth? Didn’t my authority as an adult depend on having answers?
