Little Michael's dad was thankful that I could help him get rid of a pretty sizable chunk of the oak tree that had fallen in his yard. While he owned a chain saw, he didn't know how to go about sawing up a big tree without pinching the chain, etc. I realized that I too was modeling behavior observed from my dad, who used to cut a whole lot of wood for the outdoor furnace they needed in order to heat their home in Bayfield, Wisconsin. While I didn't often get a chance to operate the saw, I too was able to watch and learn.
This reminded me of "an old saw"... kids may or may not do what we tell them to do, but they are most likely to do what they see us doing.
