On Facebook, I found the most interesting story about Jacob Barnett, posted by Dr. Andrew Weil, one of my favorite people. I have several of his books.
I wanted to put the Facebook link into this page.
It is so important to focus on the good in children, on what they are doing well. So many gifted and talented and brilliant people are driven into the ground by parents and educators who want to continually focus on every little flaw. We lose the best and the brightest this way.
STOP! We need the most brilliant and the most talented and the brightest in the world to solve problems and to make the world a better place.
QUIT! If you have to find flaws, look for them in yourself and improve yourself.
