Found this today. Not sure who the author is but it’s on point.

I think it’s a bit dishonest to use “Have faith like a child” as a way to shut a person down. Like, somehow, it means we’re not supposed to wonder, we’re just supposed to accept. Now that I have a house full of small humanity, I think I’m beginning to understand why Jesus would encourage us to have faith like a child. They don’t know. And so they ask. We don’t know. And so we ask. The asking isn’t wrong. The wondering isn’t wrong. The doubt isn’t wrong.
