When my five children were growing up they participated in the program for Gifted and Talented Children in Upper Darby School District outside of Philadelphia. Part of the curriculum was to take the Middle School Children white water rafting. The rational was that "gifted children are risk takers." How true! And how delightful! In the spirit of "taking on challenges" my oldest son, nearly 40 now, was playing Scrabble with his six year old the other night and she asked, "How do you spell 'grizzly.'" Her dad told her and she responded, "Oh darn. I don't have any of those letters." How wonderful that the confidence to tackle with courage lives on.

Can't wait to read this book. I heard Ellen speak at NAEYC PDI recently and have been pondering the 7 essential life skills. As the single mom of a 16 year old son,the teacher of 4 year old during the school year and inservice teachers during the summer I will be using this information on all fronts. One of my greatest joys is to see the fire in children's eyes.
Thanks for this important work.

Love this Whitney! I need to grab this book! Thanks so much for the review.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
