And yet . . . my son didn't learn this in a social vacuum. He watched me paint, sketch, write and solve problems. He immersed himself in learning environments. He had two parents who were interested in what he was doing, who guided him in questioning and who listend to his voice. From the moment he could walk, learning was relational.
