Independent Learning, Part Two

As we have seen, my son Lewis couldn’t take my advice in cello lessons because he needed to learn in his own way. This drive to discover things for himself ensured that he would become an independent learner.

Until I learned how to deal with this trait, conflict plagued his cello lessons because I still thought I had to teach him. Instead, I had to get out of his way, providing help only when I sensed he’d accept it.
