A Fountain Dancing Child

For a time, I saw references to this post, I don't want to raise a good child, all around the internet. One of my favorites was this commentary by another mom of a spirited child, and she called her son a "fountain dancing child." Yup, I definitely have one of those. Three years later we have given up embraced it, and try to let him live out his own particular rhythm with our blessing.


  1. Love this! I definitely think life is better when you let your child be who they truly are and not try and turn them into someone else.

    1. Yes! Although there are days... :) I tell myself that his determination and creativity will serve him well one day.

  2. I like the name fountain dancing child much better than spirited!
