The 8th of June, Bauke Stelma from the Netherlands graduated from Thomas Edison State College (TESC), New Jersey, at the age of 16 and received the Arnold Fletcher Award for his accomplishments. He received his diploma today. The advanced American system of distance education allowed him to reach this goal.


"I worked hard to accomplish this goal," says he. "Graduating before my seventeenth birthday was not what I set out to do. However, the further I proceeded in my college career, the clearer it became that it might be a feasible goal, and I decided to rise to the challenge and to pull out all the stops."

I must admit: I haven't been a whole lot of fun lately.  Not that my goal as a mother is to win the Funnest Mom Award because what's fun to many children is pure foolishness and ought not to be encouraged, but I do know the importance of being more than a lump-on-a-log mom.


Why play?


Child's play is never, ever neutral.  There is always something to be learned, something to be taught, something to be added to memories.  If you don't engage in play with your child, you are missing these moments.
