I have three great boys: 14, 13 and 8 years old.
The eldest two are home educated, the youngest attends school. Today, he was playing tag rugby for his school at a tournament in Watford. Despite a couple of injuries (and some dodgy refereeing) he played very well and scored a try.
All three of them are their own people, being who they are, not who someone else thinks they should be. They stand up for themselves and argue their position when they think they're right (which can be difficult for me).
In short, they are proper people, not robots. For that reason, and many others, I am very proud of them.
