many years ago my then teenaged daughter was extra bad in math. Our neighbor was extreamly intelligent,very high I-Q. He offered to tutor her. I went with her, sat in another room but I could hear every thing. I did not understand one thing he said. He was talking to her like he would talk to a collegue. I then realized a really good teacher is one that brings herself down to the child level. You cant expect a four year old to act twenty,but a twenty year old can act four. I just saw Mr. Colson and his daughter on the Mike Huckaby show. He said something to the effect he could not get through to Max, but when he got down on the floor he was on Max's level and then he could communicate. I wish every parent and every person who deals with children would remember "bring yourself down to childs level"
