Imagine your child won a Nobel Prize for giving one big idea to the world, through taking action. Do you believe that this is possible? Do they have it in them to be exceptional?

Kids, and all of us, want to do good things. We all want positive attention and be praised for good behavior. Asking for other peoples opinion is a great skill to have. It demonstrates leadership, helps others feel valued, and can build incredible teams who can do incredible things as a strong unit.

The final inning and it is close. My son missed a key catch that could have easily knocked one of their out.

Your baby is now 17 years old and about to walk up on stage and collect their high school diploma. In that moment of joy, you feel that moment of fear seep in as well. What’s next? What are they capable of? What has school prepared them to do?
