I’m glad to know that my son, N, doesn’t lack self-confidence. The following conversation proves this point:
“I told some of the kids at school that I know how to eat with chopsticks,” N said.
“Really,” I replied. “What did the other kids think about that?”
“They started saying that they know how to eat with chopsticks too,” N said.
“Well, maybe they do,” I said.
“No, they don’t,” N said. “They were just saying they did because the want to be handsome and cool like me.”
