They’ll Amaze You

Writes Kicking it Unschool:

Why do we trust our children to learn to walk and talk on their own as infants and toddlers, but we don’t trust they will figure out how to read and do basic math on their own as older children?

Have you leaned a language lately, or gone to rehab to relearn how to walk? That shit is hard! Kids are fighters, every single one of them. They powered through walking and talking in their first two years of life. Don’t stand in their way and they’ll amaze you at what they learn in the next ten years too.

My kids amaze me daily.
