| On Monday, I stopped my car in front of my daughter Juliet's middle school. She jumped in|
the front seat, feeling down. She asked me to help her study for her science test.
“Dad I need to memorize a unit about the Reproductive Cycle of Plants. And I can hardly make it.”

She started checking things that didn't make sense. And she was actively seeking to test her understanding. I was happy to see it. She wasn't memorizing, she was trying to make sense of things, which was exactly what I had hoped she would do.
