The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Cindy’s sister considers drawing to be a “waste” of time. How does Brenda choose to fill her time? Why does she consider her children’s activities to be more important than the things Jim, Cindy and their son Timothy are pursuing? How do these interactions depict the competitive nature of some parents? Can a parent’s good intentions or aspirations result in over scheduling a child or undervaluing individual talents, temperaments and interests?

What things do Cindy and Jim learn about standing up to others? How do they grow in the role as parents? What things do they say they would do differently next time? What things as a parent would you change if given the chance?

How can family and friends support couples that are unable to have children?
