Those of you who know my youngest well, know we have a long history of being caught reading at the wrong times….the top of monkey bars, 3am, whilst skateboarding and yes even in the shower! In fact, a while back he was banned from reading in the mornings until he was ready for school- go figure!
You would think it would be hard to read out here with no power, but no as you see there is Always a Way!
So too it is with our kids, when learning is difficult and it seems like it’s never going to happen. Remember there is Always a Way. Always a Way to Learn. Just as, once my son had the right “set up” he could read tonight, once the brain has the right “set up” it can learn. We innately want to learn, only when there is some kind of road block does that learning become frustrating and a negative experience. When many of the kids I work with start The Listening Program they seem to magically start to progress in reading, language and literacy, its more that the brain now has the right “set up” and just like my son was incredibly happy sitting here tonight being able to read in darkness these kids become incredibly happy that their darkness has also been illuminated.
Shine a light on their learning potentials tonight
