We want our kids to be successful in school and in life. We want them to be happy. And we want them to be motivated to be the absolute best students and citizens they can be.
We have a role to play.
One way we can contribute is by harnessing the incredible power of words. We pick the words. We set the bar.
In today’s episode we’ll explore the scientific discoveries and cultural history that give us a great lesson: with our expectations expressed through words, we help to sculpt a person’s performance. Will yours produce the Pygmalion Effect… or the Gollum Effect?
Watch carefully & speak wisely. And please forward to a few friends!!
