Great article about raising creative children!

Adam Grant, a professor from Wharton, writes in the New York Times on how to raise a creative child.   He argues that child prodigies often do not become adult geniuses because they lack originality.   Creativity is hard to nurture but easy to thwart by pushing kids too hard and focusing too narrowly on a single goal.   Kids should be encouraged to find joy in their work and to pursue passion.  This is an important lesson when we consider the social and emotional development of our students.   See the article at http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/31/opinion/sunday/how-to-raise-a-creative-child-step-one-back-off.html
