Social Issues and Asynchronous Kids
When our oldest son was three-years-old, he was obsessed with all things nature. Many of his conversations revolved around animals and he loved nothing more than to curl up with an animal book or nature documentary. During the day, his play centered around the animal world. He would pretend to be a ring-tailed lemur, meerkat, or an endangered condor. He would assign animals to his baby sister. 'Today you are a komodo dragon!' he'd declare with a mischievious grin. This was our normal, and it was only when we were out in public that we would realize it was not normal
