That's my worry ... she likes to debate everything now...why the heck would I want to give her a skill like that?

Because you are raising an adult human, and doing the best job you can at that trumps your comfort

We have no danger of my daughter not being able to argue a point or questioning us or being shy...not even close. It might be deadly for us as parents if she were to learn debating and excel at it. She already is too good at it for her age.


If she keeps it up great for her, that skill is easy to parley into wealth and other kinds of success

Seriously, how would you feel if she was a doormat?

If your daughter bests you in an argument, maybe it's because she's right and you're wrong.
