Forcing versus Fostering: Engaging Our Kids

Comparative Geeks

Part of the discussions that David and I have been having lately about the coming Geek Baby is what things to introduce them to and how?

One is that the parent forces the child to participate in an activity with the thought that it will better them as a person. The other is that the parent will encourage and foster them to explore options and then continue to encourage them when they seem to be engaged in a particular activity.
