Holding Back

We have been teaching Jesse how to play chess, thanks to a nifty version called No Stress Chess. He loves it and wants to play whenever he can. As I sit on the front porch here I am watching him try to teach the two boys from down the street how to play. It's cute. He doesn't get all of the rules yet but he sure thinks he does. I am trying really hard to hold back from jumping in and making sure they play "right". But, they are having fun and getting along and Jesse is being himself. I am realizing that I need to let go. Somehow I feel I will have to learn this lesson over and over again!
