My 11 year old son has a ‘cunning plan’, as he would call it! He’s going to become a famous You-Tuber, just as soon as he’s let loose by me! Share his awesome mind with the unwavering faith that the world will be transformed.
We chat about a few things on his mind lately, too (well, always actually) :
His Aspergers brain makes him feel like he doesn’t fit, most of the time. No matter how hard he tries, his school peers don’t often ‘get’ him. When it comes to one child in particular, he uses the term ‘bullied’ a lot. Now, as a trained primary school teacher myself, this is not a word us adults like to use any more. But quite often, he has a point.
Sisters, brothers, parents and family life can be HARD WORK too.
He’s passionate about cars and design, and his future career with Mercedes can’t come quick enough!
He’s also developing ‘expert’ methods of his own in Maths, that he’s proud of.
He sees from the news that the world needs fixing and he has BIG ideas. One day he might even consider being Prime Minister. But that’s third on the list.
As Caleb will end his time at primary school in a couple of months time, and embark upon secondary school life after that, it feels timely for both of us to find our voices now.
So this will be a joint blog. A practise if you wish for Caleb’s You-tubing debut. He would say it is 91% his and 9% my blog, being quite precise. I’m happy with that!
For now, as he’s 11 years old, I will manage this blog, and vet comments. But I have promised not to persuade him to write my words.
He will have his Own voice. And you may well be in for a treat.
