While being on the road, people (mostly women) ask me frequently "shouldn't she go to school?!" "she" is Fenna, our oldest daughter, just reached the age of five.
When I tell the ladies I educate her myself, the eyebrows go up down and frown. When I tell them she is already reading and writing like a 6 year old, they smile...
Can't wait to visit Finland, children over there start going to school at the age of seven! Besides that playing, plays a important role in the education of young children.
I am already looking forward to the questions of Finish ladies. One thing for sure, education wont be the subject. I assume it will be about climbing trees and dancing in a lake at sunset!
