DD has only ever hidden her ability to read when she's around someone who will make a big deal about it. I don't think it's a coincidence. Right now, she's hiding her math abilities, and I'm pretty sure it's because she can sense that I'm really interested in knowing where she's at in that area. (It's just a matter of curiosity on my part, and I know I need to work on that.)

I've always treated DD as though she could read, and acted like it was totally normal, so I think there was no reason for her to hide it from me. smile I just wish I'd done the same for math. Ah well, hindsight and all that.
