I have two sons. The eldest, a troubled youth but is doing well now and I love and am very proud of him.
My youngest, though, is why I'm asking. He's ten. An awesome ten. He's entering the sixth grade (according to his test results and his home
schooling) and is awesome!
He takes time with our elderly neighbors. He sits with them and listens to what they have to say. He has so many "grand-parents" they have to
stand in line. He's articulate. Speaks German, Spanish and is learning Latin.
(this is not to brag on a child that is far smarter than me, but to add content to what my query is)
It is often remarked that he has an "old soul".
Everyone says it.
Now I've googled "old soul".
I come to you and ask, what is an old soul?
I've heard that comment all my life but have never discerned what it meant.
For the record, I've been told that I have a very "young soul", whatever THAT means.
So I bow to the collective great minds of ATS to help me learn something.
Thank you for your time.
Love and hugs,
