Yesterday I realised that I do strew something interesting and new each day for the children.
The difference between my two children is that H glances for half a second at the new thing and in that tiny space of time takes in all he wants to about the item.
Any attempt to encourage him to engage further is met with a no and persistent encouragement leads to irritation and swearing, at which point even the stupidest parent backs off.
T on the other hand generally looks and touches and chats with me about the item for up to 5 minutes.
Now I have spotted the different reactions I can regard each one as a success. Maybe I will go back to noting down each strewing in my home education log.
