After a captivating conversation about flying a kite as part of a Social Skills Pageant, Brick learns he's the only member of his group not moving up. His teacher thinks it may be because his parents don't play or interact with him at home. She says it would be a shame if he missed out on his childhood. Ouch.
Frankie is determined to make sure Brick has a memorable childhood. When attempts at some hula hoop and pogo stick fun fall flat, Frankie tries to show her youngest son the joys of skipping. Brick's not all that into lightly bounding down the block, but Frankie seems to be having a good enough time. The skipping really cleared her head. Now she can focus on Brick's desire to finally make a friend.
