Daily Quote and Reflections–Believe in Yourself

    Daily Quote:
    “In 1967, I had a conversation with Martin Luther King, Jr., at an educational conference. An African American had just presented a paper entitled, if I remember correctly, ‘First, Teach Them To Read.’ King leaned over to me and said, ‘First, teach them to believe in themselves.'”  John Gardner, Excellence
    Reflection: I think the important message from MLK here is that the development of children requires patience and sensitivity because their confidence and curiosity about the world can be easily shut down by others. Your job as a parent is to make sure that they discover and are rewarded for being curious and imaginative.
    Action Assignment: Find one way today to reinforce your child’s believe in themselves.
