Stop saying they can't do it

"It's just too difficult... they can't do it... the vocabulary is too advanced... they're too young... they've never used that before..."

I hear this sooo many times and I'm begging you, pleading with you...


stop!

Kids are so incredibly capable of so many things that people say they "can't" do.  If you provide kids with the right instruction, the right guidance, the right amount of time, the WILL get it, they WILL do it, and they WILL impress you!  Maybe they can't do it right at this moment... but there will be that day when all that instruction and guidance pays off and they've got it! They may not get it all at the same time- but I promise you, they will.

Using a computer...

Remembering their address...

Adding 3-digit numbers...

Talking in front of a group...

Writing a sentence...

Typing in a password...

Every single child can be successful, if we just help them get there, but if we just keep creating excuses for them, they'll continue to not do those things you say they can't.

So please, if you are creating excuses for your children, your students - stop saying they can't and replace it with "They WILL..." because you'll be surprised what kids can really do!
