Well, what I would suggest is putting out a picture of him and talking to him- tell him how much you miss him and that you wish he could be a part of it all. This isn't conventional knowledge, but people do hang around in spirit form quite often. Your dad is probably watching you with great love. [ Reply | More ]

you can't punish him for it. you can talk to him about it, and keep drilling it into his head how he is supposed to act, but it may not do anything. My ds has Asperger's, and one of the exercises they do in his class is to practice meeting people. They even sing a song that goes something like, "when you meet someone new, look him in the eye, shake his hand and say HELLO!" something like that.... anyway, I wouldn't worry about it, he is probably just shy, and people will just have to be understanding that he is only 3 yo and shy.

It's Russell Hoban, and although I love Frances, I do not love the book where her father threatens to spank her if she doesn't go to sleep. To quote from a later part of the book: "Whack and smack made Frances think of a spanking." [ Reply | More ]

William Steig is great for kids around 4 years old because he writes about children going through great trials and tribulations without parental help. He has great female heroines also: Brave Irene, Pearl in the Amazing Bone. Also Tomie de Paola for the Strega Nona books, Helga's Dowry (another intrepid female) and especially for Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs--which I think is one of the great books for any age about death.

Yes the vocabulary is very rich. That's why I love Steig. He doesn't dumb down the language just bc he's writing for children. Np [ Reply | More ]

Barbara Cooney, for her simple pictures and quiet stories: Miss Rumphius is a great book and gives children the idea we can all do something to make the world more beautiful. [ Reply | More ]
