I should trust my kid more often

He’s so on the verge of reading and spelling. I got him Boggle Jr. a few weeks ago, figuring that he likes dice,  it might be fun. He was completely uninterested.

This morning, he took it off the shelf,  sat down with it, and is happily making words.

I need to remind myself that for this kid,  being ready for interests/learning is a lot more effective than trying to prescribe them.
