Rethinking His Rejection
My teenage son, who vehemently rejected my attempt to let him study subjects of his own choosing just last Friday, has figured out that maybe it is a good idea after all. We are currently studying the Age of Exploration and world geography for humanities, but he would really rather study World War II in depth, especially the political and military aspects. So he has talked me into switching his history assignments to something I am calling WWII: Causes and Consequences, and he is much happier with his school. I guess my efforts to loosen things up worked after all.
