This is great; not only is he “revealing” his private thoughts, he’s increasing his socializing through basic conversation (verbal and written).
Overall, he’s increasing his vocabulary.
His spelling is better and steadily increasing. His pronounciation is also increasing simultaneously alongside the increased ability to correctly spell and read words. His sentence building skills are increasing also.
Not to mention, his ability to be humorous or sarcastic, I’m happy for this !
Below are two screenshots I took of some of Jr’s conversations with his father and I via the Google Hangouts app. He really enjoys communicating with us via text, because sometimes he’s so excited or uncertain of himself, that he can’t complete his thoughts or sentences when speaking with us face to face.
These conversations help suppress his anxiety while also increasing his self esteem. He enjoys being able to “speak his mind and talk freely.”
I enjoy seeing this side of Jr.
