  1. I agree! My ds loves the website instructables for this. He claims he can learn to do anything on the internet! Watch out though, because some of the projects really require adult supervision (like welding).
  2. My 10 year old solicits broken XBox360s from his friends and all of our acquaintances (our 20 year old babysitter brings him some from her friends). He fixes them. He has yet to find one he cannot fix, but even if he can't fix it, well, it was broken when he got it so no big deal. These come from people who would throw the XBoxes away, so instead they give them to ds. One of his aunts is going to give him an old computer. Ds plans to replace the motherboard and see if he can get the old computer upgraded. As you can tell, he is very tech-oriented. If a kid is very interested in computer games, learning about how the computer works could be interesting and (trust me) it takes a lot of time. Ds uses the internet to find fixes and I take him in to talk to the very nice guys at our locally-owned, independent computer shop.

    Shy vs Rude

    Have you thought about teaching her sign language? If your primary concern is that she not appear rude, that might do the trick. My dear friend had a child with selective mutism. I just accepted him for the lovely child he was and worked within his comfort zone. When he didn't talk to people, my friend woudl just give a simple explanation "he doesn't talk" or "he has selective mutism" and moved on. She was wonderful at not bringing extra attention to the little guy who so obviously did not want extra attention. I guess some people may have thought he was rude, but those people didn't know him. Just like sometimes children with ADHD are labled "brats" or kids with autism get labled....I think you see where I'm going on this. This child became a dear frind of my daughter. She would say, "X doesn't talk, but he listens to me and when he's nervous I hold his hand." So nice how accepting of others children can be.
