Tip: Follow the Child


Pay attention
Listen to me
Do as I say
Follow my lead

Note: At dinner, Nick insisted on dropping his metal train on the hardwood floor – repeatedly. It drove me nuts until Lori pointed out that this is how he would learn about gravity. So we dropped different objects – paper, pens, more metal trains – to see the differences.

(Much more effective than reading about Newton – which we have done.)

Then I weighed the cost of repairing each nick versus the return on investing in Nick.

Nick won.

It is difficult for this bookworm to admit that sometimes you must look up from the pages and actually experience life.
