I found that when my were younger there were moments when you would think they knew nothing, but in the end they were absorbing it and one day it all clicked. I thought my youngest golden was picking up nothing for a year and a half. We took class after class and worked at home all the time. He had me quite confused, but one day as I was working with him he did everything perfectly and has done so ever since.
