Proof, math, being with a child

New page, started and forgotten in 2006; found, formatted and expanded September 20, 2015:

Second half is new, by Karen James, about her son and math at the dentist's office:

Karen is writing quite a bit lately, and it's good. I've saved something she wrote about being with her son, and about playing. The photo here goes with that writing.

Introverts and Extroverts and in between

This was added to the bottom of a page on my site, but because I chose to put it at the bottom, I figured it should be at the top somewhere. Here it is. I followed links back to find the artist and that's credited/linked.

If people offer all of those courtesies to EVERY child (partner, friend), they won't need to worry about whether they're extrovert, introvert or a combo!
