  1. Yes, resonates! With F’s eighth year being marked by a growing love of playing sports – something I’m not fussed about – I’ve found it helpful to identify the areas where our interests DO collide. Story-reading and board games, mainly. Trying to invest in these as much as possible to make up for being such a hopeless table-tennis partner for him! (Although it’s amazing what a talent I have for sitting watching him play against his friends with a book in hand!)

  2. I’m about to have a Year 3 boy, so I’ll watch with interest to see how the stroppiness develops. He’s already had a couple of times when he’s been pushing boundaries, and I’ve learned waaaay too much about cars and Mariokart already!
