If you ever have the pleasure of our Daughter’s company, please don’t test her. The Daisy is both enspiring and tiring at the same time. She’s a whirl wind of questions and excitement. She’s colourful and kind. She is stubborn and excitable.
She is many more things to what I can list.
She isn’t an exam paper, she isn’t your judgement on what she is supposed to know.
She isn’t a child to be forced into a round peg hole. She never has been, even when small she was a vibrant soul.
Only yesterday whilst visiting a heritage building with a friend she was casually explaining “old art work” in conversation. A young adult told her friend how cute it was to listen to a child so excitedly talk about history. That’s the Daisy. I don’t teach her, I facilitate. I cannot possibly “teach” her all she will need to know. I can only facilitate her joys at the present time.
I can only educate her on how to research topics. I cannot provide her every answer to whatever question she asks.
Please don’t test her. I have knowledge on alot of stuff however I’m not tested on it. I learn as I go. Please let her learn in whichever way she chooses.
Let her be little, let her be herself most importantly let her choose joy over tests.
