I got DS a maze book that came with computer software- I loaded the software on his computer and it's reeeeaally simple. You click on something, it tells you what it is and you click on the letter that it starts with.
Ds suddenly acts like he has no idea what letter vulture starts with! I know for a fact he has this down pat.
I leave the room, and he beats that level.

So, why is it when I'm there he acts like he doesn't know things but as soon as I leave he does it just fine? Grrrr!
Not really a question I guess, just a vent.

Sarah does that kind of thing too. It is very frustrating for me to watch her play for too long so I usualy leave her too it! She's had a thing about wanting to play a couple of alphabet/phonic type games latly, she has gone to level 2 on both of them now. I can see I will probably have to do the same with the Music Ace too. *sigh*

Kids are strange! But, it could be that he second guesses himself when you are there. You know what all the letters and words say and maybe it is intimidating, so he doesn't know if he is right. Emily does this sometimes, so I stop correcting her. She actually figures it out better without me most of the time if I don't step in.

My youngest does things like that all the time. She really had a complex about colors for awhile and wouldn't want to talk about them at all. I really thought she didn't know them until I'd watch her coloring when she didn't know I was watching her and she'd name them all as she'd pull them out of the box.

Just the other day, she pulled out three blocks and said, as she put one over to the right of her at a time, "one plus one plus one is three." When I asked her what she said and she realized I was watching her, she got embarrassed and pretended she didn't know what she had done.

I'm not sure why she does that!
