I have a student this summer who is so dependent, would ask me endlessly on what he is supposed to do, how to do it, what to do next, etc. Those kids whose initiative and forward-thinking needs a lot of development. This kid reminded me of my former student who always displayed initiative and street-smartness even at his young age. He is excels well in sports and academic too. He would find ways to get what he wants and what he needs, doesn’t depend much from other’s help if he can, and would only ask for help when he knew that he is unable to do the task. I especially admire that kid and extremely missed him today. Kids like him makes my day and my job easier and lighter.
