Harsh Truth: Ultimate Responsibility of Education Falls to The Child

I would often ponder the dramatic differences in eagerness and ability to learn in children. I could find no consistent variable except that generated by the child himself. Did he WANT the education and find it valuable to achieve his life goals?

In truth, education belongs to the child. What he learns, what he accomplishes, how well he succeeds is ultimately up to him. The responsibility is truly his.

The old adage, “You can lead the horse to water, but you can’t make him drink” is valid for 7 and 70-year-olds alike, especially when it comes to education.

Guest Blog: Mimicry – A Most Powerful Super Power

The child tunes in to life and learns at breakneck speed. Mimicking what he sees and hears – he plays tribute to the old “Monkey See; Monkey Do” adage.

Have you ever met a beautifully behaved child? A child who says “please” and “thank you,” a child who is considerate of others, who is a delight to be with? Without a doubt, the people around such a child are polite to him, treat him with respect and grant him importance.

Help the Super Power of Genius Come Out in Your Kids

Can you teach your child to think like a genius? Yes, that’s capital Y-E-S.

How to Get Super Powers: Non-Traditional Schooling vs. et. al

It has become apparent to me, on a personal level, that our traditional school system and “education” are no longer synonymous. If kids cannot study and become COMPETENT in applying subjects that interest them, subjects they are passionate about, we’re setting them up for heartbreak.
