As a parent I spend a lot of time thinking about how to raise a successful kid?
Does success depend on cognitive ability? Higher IQ scores, better educational opportunities, advanced degrees, higher grades? Many believe this to be the case and they push their children to get into the best schools and get the best grades possible. To join the most clubs and do the most activities. They start them early because we know that by starting early our kids will have the best shot at success.
We do not buy into this cognitive theory for success.
We believe in a character model.
