Post subject:  resilience

I was just thinking about how we discussed Cedric having enough resilence to beat his head about learning the books, but not enough resilience to deal with the MIT problem. I've been thinking for quite sometime that what kids really need in school is a class on resilience. It is awesome to me that SPARKS is now coming into my school to help at risk kids get some things about their life in order. They spend the first week on habits, then attitudes, then organization and so forth. It is just so great that I thought about getting into that as a career...just taking the time to motivate some kids that otherwise wouldn't get that spark in their life(due to lack of good role models or whatever). But really, isn't that what one of the hardest things in life is-getting back up when you've been knocked down. SM
