At 12 I dropped out of school but I had lost interest in it at a much earlier age. For me, school was very very stressful.
I definitely have managed to overcome dyslexia now to become a fully functional human being but things were a lot more difficult when I was younger.
I didn't read at all until I was 12. I just couldn't. It was too frustrating.
我直到12岁才读过书。 我就是做不到 太令人沮丧了。
I think what my father appreciated was the science experiment of life. He had these kids, and they had their own experiences. He wanted us to discover the world for ourselves.
我认为父亲赞赏的是生命的科学实验。 他有这些孩子，他们有自己的经历。 他希望我们为自己发现世界。
My parents told us how they felt but never imposed their beliefs on us, although I appreciate I got a healthy sense of democracy from them.
My father would often work all night and sleep during the day, so for us, dinner might be pancakes, and breakfast might be beef stroganoff.
