The Secret to Raising Smart Kids
Hint: Don’t tell your kids that they are.
—-

it can be very disempowering to be told you are smart, or smarter… what does that mean anyway? intelligence varies across too many dimensions to really make that claim too strongly as far as i’m concerned. there are people who are demonstrably disadvantaged in any number of ways in terms of mental faculties, but past the demonstrable, I’m not sure i believe in ‘smart’ as much as I might have a few years ago.

    I may not be “smart”, but I think your post title doesn’t match your content. V. strange. But I agree with you about not telling kids how smart they are. All the “smart” kids from my high school dropped out of university.
