It ain't bragging if they done it. Pleased with your kid's accomplishments? Let's celebrate the young'uns' successes. Post 'em up, parents!
November '14 issue of Classic Trucks, my kid painted (and did some other chores) the black 1955 Chevy pickup on the cover.
There is nothing that will build a relationship between parents and confidence in a child than that of a proud parent. I am Proud of you Qwerty for the posting, and the boys accomplishment.
Congrats! Nothing like bringing the classics back to life. Especially when you get your Rig featured in Classic Truck Magazine The Holy Grail !
WOW! & and my dogs add in a double BOWWOW!

Proud goes before a fall, one of the deadly sins. I am pleased that my son has risen to the top of his profession. Not bad for a kid with multiple learning disabilities and from a broken home.
Like any other successful person, it's been a long road--20+ years of experience and training. I start them young. We kept projects going while he was growing up so his foundational knowledge and experience comes from home. He is also a graduate of WyoTech. He has continued to expand his knowledge base by additional training and a plethora of practical experiences and experimentation in our toy box, some experiments successful and some not, but all educational. To this day when he pulls some obscure, forgotten technique out of his back pocket and brings some antique tool from home to solve a current problem, his coworkers ask if he learned that at WyoTech or is that one he learned from his daddy. I can't take credit for all he does, but I can take credit for raising a moral and honorable man who is a lifetime learner, who accepts and overcomes challenges, and who has earned the respect of his community. That is the crux of good parenting.
He is late 20s. I'm looking forward to his next big project.
