How are we teaching our children? How are we raising them?
Are we giving them–even if accidentally–signals that they are inherently different from one another in their cognitive capacity?
Are we teaching them how to work hard, how to learn, how to study, how to make mistakes with grace (and humor) and recover from them with enthusiasm?
Do you know how to do all those things?
I for one, am continuing to learn.
Give this a read. Please.
