ABCs of Being Smart: I Is Not for "I"
Foster, Joanne
Parenting for High Potential, v2 n4 p20-21 Jan 2013
The author of this article implores parents to take the word "I" off the table. Instead of thinking "What can I do for my children?" consider, "What can they do for themselves?" How can one invoke children's independence and initiative? Start by inspiring them to investigate, imagine, and use their intellect. This article provides some ideas, each one formatted as an inquiry, so as to provide immediate impetus for implementation.
