I asked my daughter, who is very interested in creating fairy characters and drawing them, to write a story. I told her I would post the story on Swami Mommi, and quickly she was headed for the drawing table. I asked that she show me “how fairies learn”. I was really asking her how kids learn, or how they think of learning.
Her drawings and story taught me how to love more deeply and give up control as a parent. Not what I expected! This is what my little five-year-old up-and-coming author told me.
