However, he told me the other day that he was so glad he's doing it. Even with all the time it takes from his regular down time activities.
I was always pretty good at science, but mostly cuz I can follow directions. I've never really thought like a scientist or anything, so deciding what his project would be was a bit of a challenge. We hopped on the good ol' World Wide Web and decided on THIS project.
Here's the thing I've found to be the most difficult. Finding the balance between doing it all for him to make sure he does everything he's suppose to do and letting him do it for himself. After all, he is 7 years old and just because he has a great handle on many scientific concepts doesn't mean he's capable of presenting that information in a clear and understandable manner. I want this to be HIS project so he can be proud of himself and know that he can accomplish something cool in school. And also, I don't want people to walk in and think that mommy and daddy did everything and that we're those parents that just want everyone to think their kid is super smart.
Really, who cares what they think, right?
