Maddox is in the Gifted and Talented program at his school and Ditty shares the secret combination of influences that got him there. We share our memories of the Gifted and Talented programs we remember and how we related to it. Ellie is very athletic and Ditty tells us about how well she did during Track and Field. Harper has progressed in pre-school and that brings Adam to mention that they had an issue with one of the teachers. We then discuss how we remember our teachers. All a parent can do is their best and their kids will turn out how they turn out. We talk about how the way kids are raised will not always cause the intended outcome. Axel is starting to do things on purpose now. He has much better control over his movements and Sheilla and I are more aware of his basic intentions because of it. The little steps he's taking in his development are bigger than they seem. Finding a balance between structure and embracing the different influences of others so they get a well rounded experience as they develop. I talk about how we are keeping TV from Axel even though we don't know what affect that will have on him it seems like the best way to go about it, to us. We come to the conclusion that as long as a parent is trying their best they have to recognize that is literally as good as they can do. We compare notes and outcomes from different relationships to TV and to reading. I want Axel to be able to draw because I think it is the most efficient way to communicate an idea. I ask the guys about where they think their interest in drawing came from.
