Forging Ahead

This won't take long...

I asked My son--like I do every school day--"What did you learn today?"

His somber response: "Less than yesterday." And he was upset, truly bothered by this failing.

So I asked him what happened. He said matter-of-factly: "The teacher has to teach the other kids what I already know." And he proceeded to tell Me what it was that he had learned the day before and compared it to the little bit he had learned that day.

I then said "Are you happy that you are ahead of the class?"

"No," he said quietly. "There's almost nobody to talk to."

I nodded. Welcome to My world, Son. Hope it's nicer to you than it has been to Me.

The Jenius Has Spoken.
