This morning my son heard me zip my lunch bag, and, right on cue, he said “See you later daddy!” I gently “scolded” him by responding, “I am not going yet! I have to put my computer in my bag.” And then I realized that his world is so much different than mine was. I am getting a sense of how my parents felt as they tried to understand me. The needs that my son and I have are very similar if not identical. Negotiating this new landscape so that his needs are met…now there’s the challenge.
