My son is 6 years old.He's in First grade. He is outspoken and can make quite witty comments that can make others laugh,but only when his people are around.
Only yesterday we had been to a shop where he bought two packets of biscuits and got two free.The shop lady said, 'You have four packets.Why don't you give me one.?'
This guy was rather taken aback.So he thought for a while and said, 'You have so many here,why don;t you take one of them.'
But in his school he is very quiet. His teachers say 'he is very good in his studies.He answers all our questions.He is so confident. But very quiet.'
He does not talk with all of his classmates,but only to a couple of them-whom he terms his best friends. He is afraid of swimming because 'Master throws me into the pool.'He is afraid of the fourth grade senior in the van who who says, 'Go and sit there or here.'
'Why can't my son say 'I will sit wherever I want.' Or why can't he just not bother to obey. I hate it when my little one sounds so subserviant. What do I do to put some
'dare to deal with me,'attitude in him?'
