My Comment: It may be too early to do the following exercise in full, but we can briefly describe Sam; his character is beginning to emerge. So, how would you describe Sam? How would you answer the question “Who is Sam?” I would love to hear your perspective. To those that reply, I will reveal my 9 word description of him and I bet when you compare your description with mine, you will agree with me that my description is better than yours. J
Also, I want to ask Brian and Erica for permission to create a private blog on my web site for Sam. My intension is to make a scrap book of sorts, accessible to you and both sides of the family. It would help fulfill the suggestion to start a notebook for him. Reply and let me know.
Now, on to the next thought or two of this book.
Making a Life Skills Checklist
This exercise is for parents. Imagine your child as an adult. Don’t focus on careers or jobs for purposes of this exercise, but on independence and character qualities. Start one notebook for each child, and describe this person as a young adult.
