“But I can’t read”, my six year old said two months back when I told him I was buying him a book without colourful pictures.
“So what, we can learn”, I told him, before adding, “Why, Are you afraid to try?”
His competitive nature couldn’t resist the challenge. It was a tedious task, but he persevered. The fact that the English language is not predictable only made it more complicated. But by the end of the month, I know he’ll be able to read that book.
When you set yourself a goal- a tangible, non-negotiable goal, you do often succeed.
