Birthdays

A four-year-old boy who lived in the next house watched each day as I built a kayak in my back yard. One day, as seriously as he could be, he told me he was shot when he was fourteen. He didn't seem to care if I heard or believed him.

I wondered if at that age kids know the difference between what they imagine and what they hear or see. I would learn later that at six or seven they stop their practice talking and start negotiating with their friends for what they want. They take another step in growing their power.

Negotiating with others requires people to think somewhat alike.

Yet, parents who homeschool want their children to differ from other children. Their children will find that negotiating requires them to first deal with any differences.
