Today my husband sent me this
“Edison was a poor student. When a schoolmaster called Edison “addled,” his furious mother took him out of the school and proceeded to teach him at home. Edison said many years later, “My mother was the making of me. She was so true, so sure of me, and I felt I had someone to live for, someone I must not disappoint.” At an early age, he showed a fascination for mechanical things and for chemical experiments.“
A story about Thomas Edison who apparently had “difficulties” in school but clearly succeeded in life.
My older is “difficult” I always tell myself he will be a successful adult but as a child he is a toll on us, his parents.
He doesn’t understand “no”, he literally doesn’t understand it. Don’t tell me your child is the same, no, he is not, trust me.
