I find myself looking at a poster above his little bed. It’s a marketing poster for a company called Perform, featuring a cartoon of a pirate island: “Watch your child shine” is the slogan. There are stickers placed crookedly in appropriate slots in the poster, indicating activities undertaken (“I discovered a castaway”, or “I rapped the Rum Rap”). I think back to the school newsletter I leafed through earlier, with its rows of pictures of kids surfing the web, and learning about Kenya, and comparative religion. And to his browsing Google Earth so expertly this morning on the iPad.
