we are halfway through our 6 pesukim for today and she needs many many breaks. when i "unschool" her ie let her do what she wants, the relationship is so pleasant. when i push her to learn, we have conflict. does it always have to be this way? my rabbi says learning, especially skills, is not in the nature of a child and it goes against their inclination and their desire and they fight it. and yes, i should make it as pleasant as possible, but it is against human nature. (though another part of human nature is to enjoy accomplishment--but that's after it's mastered, not during the work of mastering).
i'm itching to work, and chana is at the playground. i think i'll practice trope.
