November 2018 . . . .
My daughter came home from the first day of school this fall with documents to read and sign. Schools are big on covenants and agreements between teachers and students and parents joint pacts to study and teach, to complete syllabi, to not lose or break computers and so am I. My daughter (the younger) is still in the satisfaction-through-successful-task-completion age and I understand that, too. There are other types of children, of which I was one, who surrender at sixteen to just not delivering the goods. Oh, I learned the stuff, but didnt do the homework, or write the papers or study for the exams and my grades in high school showed that truth. Amply.
