Don’t help tooo soon… child story

5+3=8.

My son was doing his homework, By counting loudly with his little fingers. I was observing that. Next came, 11+7.

He tried to count with the same method, but seems confused. My wife tried to intervene, But i asked her to stop. My son looked at us both, But we didn’t say anything.

So he thought for a while, And started drawing small lines. We (me and my wife) both were wondering What is he doing? He draws 11 small lines in the first row, And 7 such lines in the second.

And started counting all, 1,2,3…….16,17,18 And finally, he wrote the answer. When you see no hope for help, You see hope for invention!
