Definition
informative (providing desired information)
  • It wasn't a way of talking that I was used to—possibly I had never talked that way before— but I knew I could get used to it in a heartbeat, that here I had stumbled on a prerogative of parenthood I hadn't thought of before (I'd thought only how I would be tender and affectionate and patient and instructive).
