You Can Do It! How to Encourage Our Kids to Dream Big (Real Big)! by Kimberly Johnson
Driving home the other night I had to pull over when my daughter asked me a question that stopped me in my tracks. She'd been telling me about a space exploration invention she came up with and ended with, “but who would EVER listen to a 9-year-old girl?”
I asked her to think about what she had in common with every influential person she could think of. She racked her brain but wasn’t sure where I was going with it. I simply stated, “Every adult who has done anything extraordinary was a 9-year-old child at some point, so why shouldn’t they listen to you?”
Imagine my pride when I opened my computer and found a letter addressed “Dear NASA.” I can’t wait for her to get home this afternoon so I can hug her, tell her to always dreams big and get her letter in the mail!
