Parenting Perspective: Normal behavior for 7-year-olds

This week my blog is about 7-year-olds and what's typical behavior both at home and at school. The most comprehensive guideposts I've found are in Chip Woods' YARDSTICKS: CHILDREN IN THE CLASSROOM AGES 4 TO 14. I keep it handy when I'm not sure what to expect from my child or if they need a slight redirection during sports, hobbies, downtime at home, or with school work.
