“If you believe you can or believe you can’t—you’re right.” ~Someone somewhere said that

It’s true: We’re all right. Whatever we believe to be true is true for us. In the case of children, however, where we are making choices for someone else, we want to do the thing that sends them the most positive and enabling message, one that says, “You can.” “You can do anything you want to do with your life, and be anything you want to be.” For me, that’s unschooling.

  1. I totally agree with that comment. Every kid should be told and encouraged to believe that they achieve whatever they want in life. It may take some work
    to get there sometimes, but if they want it they can reach that goal!

    Thumbs Up!!!!!
