Warning: this is a non-math-related post :-). Today I took Katie rock climbing with me for the first time (unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take a picture, but maybe next time). First, if your kid likes climbing on things on the playground, at home, or elsewhere, this could be a great activity for them. Katie falls into that category, so she had a great time.
Katie tried a few different routes, each one several times. Each time she would get about a third of the way up (the wall was quite high), then looked down and say that she wants me to lower her to the ground. I never suggested that she should go higher so that she would feel that she’s in full control. I look forward to seeing her (literally) climb to new heights in the future!
