Daugther 10, came home dissapointed. Dissapointed that she was being penalised for her quick thinking. Marks were deducted because the table used to prove the question was not comprenhensible. More numbers were needed. She could have transpose from else where. When nurturing young mind are we prepared to accept and encourage when presented with the unexpected? Give the benefit of the doubt to the child or squash any that deviate from the trodden path. Does two marks make any difference? Except a motivation boost for a trying child.
