There's more to life than standardized tests
Have you ever had that sinking feeling that your child may not pass the upcoming standardized test? A parent once shared that she knew her 7-year old would do just fine but was really concerned that her 3-year old wouldn't pass the test. My eyes probably got wide and my jaw probably dropped. You're worried about that...when he's only 3-years old?!
The sad reality is that parents are worried. Kids are, too. Everyone wants to do well on what's been deemed the test that proves whether or not your child will make it in life. The truth of the matter is, though, that there are other things that determine your child's success. ...especially in today's time.
Our kids definitely need the 3 R's: Reading, 'Riting, and 'Rithmetic. But maybe just as important (if not more so) are the 4 C's: Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
Watch the video and see if this reminds you of your little one (or big one) who may seem to never sit still, who may always be questioning, who enjoys working with his/her hands, who is always experimenting. Then, start encouraging those talents. In our world of technology and innovation, they may be the ones who create the next Google or figure out the cure for cancer. Celebrate that you have a child who thinks outside of the box!
