I get asked this question a lot.
Usually like this:
"Wow, he's so (well behaved, articulate, able to use a glass), do you work with him?"
I have no idea what they're asking.
I do house work with him, sweep, dust, pick up the room, wash dishes.... is this "working with him?"
I answer his questions (that certainly feels like work when I have to explain why THIS sign says No parking but THAT sign says No parking right now)..... is this "working with him?"
We have "pretty school" (preschool) at home, and do science experiments and leave the house with food coloring stained fingers and faces.... is this "working with him?"
I explain that there are kids who don't have toys like he has toys and help him find what he wants to give to others and explain why we buy extra canned goods we will give away... is this "working with him?"
I guess the easy answer for the people who ask is yes. But I feel that would be wrong, because it's not WORK (90% of the time).
But I don't consider any of that working with him.
It's mainly just doing what I'd do anyway... but as a team. And growing myself, because if I was alone, would I consider that the clouds are moving fast but the trees don't move at all? Probably not.
But I don't WORK with him.
I work WITH him.
