Kids are sponges. They soak up information from everywhere. With all the reading, watching, and sucking up of stuff that they do, it's no wonder their little heads don't explode.
In an effort to release some of the brain pressure, my oldest recently asked me, "Mom...do you think today I could teach us all something?"
Hmmmschooler Iggy decided that he needed to teach a class on Creating Characters. Iggy is all about drawing comics and he thought his brother and mother needed to expand that part of their brain.

The thing about watching your kid teach you is that it teaches you so much about them. How they learn. How they listen. How they soak things in. And how they want to be taught.
It gives them power. It helps them feel the things they know are important. It gives them a sense that the things they are smart about have value.
And those are some great lessons to learn. :)
Well, I'd love to stay and chat but I've got to go. Hmmmschooler Ooky has informed me he will be teaching "How To Write A Song" in just a little bit...and I don't want to be late for class. :)
