A little validation


Recommended Posts

This past weekend we had a family wedding.  My father-in-law who has never commented about my DS's intelligence and who at one point (before I was even considering it) told me I should never home school, made a comment that made me super proud!  Due to the exhaustion that comes along with family weddings I don't remember the exact quote, but it went something very much like this - " I am very proud of Gray's communication skills.  He easily talks to people as though he is 10 or 11."  Of course, my son has been easily communicating ideas since he was 1 and is now 7 so that isn't a huge deal, but the fact that my judgmental father-in-law praised my son is huge.  I am also taking a leap and saying that he was also praising our choice to home school, because my son has never been trained that he should only speak to his age peers.
