My own need for gratification LOVES that we get feedback. My desire to succeed is proud that Jack is going well, but my inner anarchist is anticipating the years of standardized tests (which I don’t think anyone likes or even agrees with, so, why do we do them again?!) I wish we could learn for the sake of knowing things. Completely self-guided, realistically self-guided learning is something that only happens after establishing a basic mastery of language, mathematics, history and science.
I just hope his drive for knowledge develops at the same time as his work-ethic instead of being a late bloomer like me!
How about you? Report cards? Anarchistic tendencies?
