Expectations for kids

Had my writing group yesterday, after a long winter haitus. Very good stuff came out from there. Got the short story I recently finished thoroughly thrashed and I’m very excited at how improved it will be as a result.

Also, during the course of the conversation we talked about how talented my middle daughter is at writing and how I’m trying to influence her career choice in that direction. We realized we were talking about “Don’t choose something practical. Be an artist; you need to be a writer.” She thinks that’s weird right now.

Don’t parents usually say, “You can’t be an artist, because most aren’t very successful. You must be an .”?

Did I punctuate that correctly?

Also, told my almost 3 yr old: Math is cool, because numbers ALWAYS follow the rules. It is always perfect.

Do numbers have personalities to you?
