Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

TechnoBoy usually completes his math assignments by starting at the last problem on the page and working backward to the first. Normally this isn’t a problem but every once in a while he neglects to notice that he’s not on the right lesson and accidentally works on the wrong one.

This happened again the other day and I couldn’t resist teasing, “That’s what you get for working backwards on your math.”

He responded, “I like doing math that way. I work faster.”

Soooooo would you call that Reverse Psychology?

Heh, heh, heh. I crack me up. 😀
