15 Oct ~ Le Artiste

In one of the litany of child psych books I've read in an attempt not to irrevocably screw up my child... it stressed the importance of free thought and the cultivation of your child's imagination. They stressed not to give in and give kids coloring books so that they can merely color between the lines, but to give them sketch pads so that they can create their own art. Although I believe that to be true, I don't plan on depriving my child of coloring books if she's dying for one... but for now, we'll stick with the sketch pads. As you can tell it's a fave past time and one for which takes great concentration and focus.... and apparently a very keen eye (given that she has to be an inch from the paper)...(=
