I enrolled my son in a "gym class" on Fridays

Basically this class teaches him how to play different sports and practice throwing, catching, kicking what not. It reinforces following directions (game rules and such) and social skills  especially with playing team sports and games.   My mom asked my son, "What did you learn in school?"  My son replies, "Nothing but I did learn how to play football."  My mom looked at me "He didn't learn anything in school; I hope not all the classes are like that."   Hmm Mom,  he's LEARNING about different games and how to play them and enhancing his socialization skills;  learning is not always academic!  Oh mom! LOL

How exciting for your son! I bet he's already making friends too. :)   Yeah, sometimes people tend to forget that educating one's self or one's own child(ren) is about everything in life. Not just academic skills that are taught but life skills have to be taught as well.  :)
