I just have to give a big shout out to all the parents who raise optimistic kids! Yesterday, while working on our drawing skills and someone tearfully said "I'm no good at drawing", I was assuring them that mistakes were nothing to cry over and that they would be "okay". That is when I heard it.
Another student quietly exclaimed...
"I'm more than okay, I'm GREAT!"
I wish every student had been instilled with such self assurance!
