Fish in trees

I found this quote the other day:

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." ~ Albert Einstein

How often do we judge people on the things WE do well or the things we think they should be able to do?

This quote is very relevant to me at the moment. As a homeschool Mum I have to ask myself in which situations I expect my children to 'perform' a task or 'achieve' an academic goal if it's NOT in their skill range (yet / or not at all).

I need to think more about this. But for now...

... let us allow fish to be fish...
