The Education and Evolution of Maxwell Grant, by Cole Parker

I really enjoyed this story. First, it showed an example of great parenting: I wish my own father had been more like that. At the same time, the father in that story is giving the reader good advice on finding the balance between assertiveness and overreacting. And I liked seeing the boy's growth as, encouraged by his father, he found his own creative solutions to his problems. And of course, I enjoyed seeing the haberdasher being gently put in his place. Great story!

As Peter says, excellent parenting. It ought to be required reading for all fathers of quiet sons. I love Cole's writing and I think that this is his best.

 

Seriously, lots of you have a son... and whatever age he is, read this one and then treat him differently.

 

Some stories are worth waiting for, and this is one.
