What can be done to get the most out of one's schooling? What would you change about your education experience?
I think, more than anything, we have to encourage the sense of curiosity and creativity in our kids. If we do that, and try to keep them engaged - finding the things that interest them to drawn them into learning - we spark a desire to learn in our kids that lasts their whole lives. I've been amazed to see just how much young kids can do and accomplish on their own - and how empowered they feel when they have to figure it out themselves without parents getting involved. I have volunteered for years with Destination Imagination as a volunteer coach (great organization!) and when the kids sign that Declaration of Independence that their solutions and creations must be KID POWERED - no parental involvment, they actually cheer! and are excited to read their parents the rules of no intervention. And they have amazed me each and every year.
