My 10-year-old daughter and three-year-old son seem to have that initial spark. They enjoy being outside playing ball, chasing butterflies and climbing trees. My 13-year-old son never seemed to ignite that spark. If given the choice, he'll choose inside. His outside choices revolve around group activities like camping or sports - all good, but he's not usually the initiator. Are these connections genetic, environmental...a little bit of both?
