I’ve clearly failed somewhere.

So, after reading a book in which some ducks play hide and seek, I asked the kids if they wanted to play a round of hide and seek.

They did.

I explained the rules and the way it works. We read the book again to review.

I went to the kitchen and counted to ten out loud. They scampered off to hide.

When I got to ten and announced that I was coming to find them, I turned around and found Wesley. He was “hiding” by standing in the middle of the dining room, waiting expectantly. He was very excited that I found him.

Then we went upstairs. Mary was hiding by sitting in the middle of her bed.

I don’t think they quite get it. Is hide and seek an acquired skill, or what? I mean, it is called “hide and seek,” not “stand in plain view waiting and seek,” right?

    Are you sure you want them to get good at hiding from you?
