I know how to look it up


Dandy (10): Chickadee, what's a consonant blend?
Chickadee (8): I forgot, but I know how to look it up.
(I faint with pleasure at this.)
Chickadee: Why don't you know this already?
Dandy: It's not the sort of thing that sticks in my head.
Chickadee: Well then I'll teach you how to look it up, and then you are on your own.
(I briefly revive, and faint away again. If all else fails, I have raised at least one independent learner. Malcolm Knowles would be proud of me.)



She then gives him a nice explanation -- with examples -- of consonant blends and digraphs.

Yea for Chickadee for helping. But YEA for Dandy, too.

Asking for help when you need it is a big deal. Being willing to ask your little sister is a big deal. Knowing that some things have trouble sticking in your head is a big deal.

He's not quitting, and that's a big deal. ;>
