Dude: Maybe. But you said I'd have play dates. Anyway, you don't really play with your friends at school, except on the playground.
Mom: If we passed by and saw kids playing on the playground, would you wish you were with them?
Mom: What else would you miss about school? Besides playing on the playground?
Dude: Um...That's about it.
Mom: There must be something, come on. Don't say what you think I want to hear. Tell me what you'd really miss.
Dude: Um...I'm trying to think of something.
Mom: What about just being in the classroom? Working with the other kids?
Dude: But Mom, I like being independent! I like being unique!
