Homework Conversation with a Four Year Old

I love to help my four year old with his homework but he likes to do most of it on his own. In fact, we, as a family, spend the best time when we sit down together to discuss how to go about his homework. It makes all of us excited about getting the work done and not view it as a dreary chore that needs to be over and done with.

Every day, we get set as if we are getting ready for an ambitious Mission Impossible like project. What I enjoy is our anticipation and excitement that makes the whole process of completing homework so much more interesting, growth oriented and yes, lots of fun in discovering more about each other.

So, here goes today's conversation. While Adi is writing his "E" and "H" in the school notebook, he constantly wants me to talk. So, his mom tells him, "Why don't you finish and then talk like in class when Ma'am is teaching?"

Smart guy says, immediately, "But when Ma'am talks in class, I start talking too."

There goes!

So young and yet so wise - I had to smile. Don't you just love them when they are at that age that they have an answer for everything.

If your son continues to be verbal, he might become a great litigator in court! Way to go!
