Well I know how you feel about feeling inadequate when palying with the kids. I soemtimes feel that when I try to help the kids at B.U, I end up not doing much to help them because I just don't know how. I think when that happens, we just need to relax and take things slowly. When I can't figure out how to help a kid, I tell them I don't know what to do and offer to work with them to make sense out of the problem. A lot of the times, we just brainstorm together until one of us gets it. Then we explain to each other how to accomplish the task. Sometimes it's good be as lost as they are.
