I have a little friend in my room that's exceptionally bright and has really great parents. They don't often let him watch TV or play electronic games--he usually reads or plays board games with his family. His dad works two jobs so his mom can stay at home with them, and sometimes his parents are both home when we're not at school because Dad is sleeping and Mom is, as usual, at home with the kids.
During sharing time Friday, I said, "Please share with us what you did on your day off yesterday."
"Well, my mom and dad said I could play on the computer for a little while today. Actually, I got to play for a long time!"
Me: "Well, that's unusual for you! What were they doing while you got to play?"
N: "They were in their bedroom. They shut the door, and I think they were playing a game or something because they were in there a long time. Probably Scrabble."
