Help your child become an amazing reader!
One day, as a small child, Thomas Edison came home from school gave a paper to his mother.
He said to her, “Mom, my teacher gave this paper to me told me only you are to read it. What does it say?”
Her eyes welled with tears as she read the letter out loud to her child…
Your son is a genius
“Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him doesn’t have good enough teachers to train him. Please teach him yourself.”
Many years after Edison’s mother had died, he became one of the greatest inventors of the century
Now for the mind-blowing part…
One day he was going through a closet he found the folded letter that his old teacher wrote his mother that day.
He opened it…
The actual message written in the letter was:
“Your son is Mentally Deficient. We cannot let him attend our school anymore. He is Expelled.”
Waves of emotion washed over him tears rolled down his cheek as he read the letter to himself. That very day, he wrote down in his diary…
“Thomas A. Edison was a mentally deficient child whose mother turned him into the genius of the century.”
Listen, this true story is a perfect example that no teacher will ever care more about your child’s education than you as a mother. The most crucial thing we can do for our child is to teach them the joy of reading, at the earliest age.
Even if they’re as young as 2, don’t know their alphabet at all currently show zero interest in reading whatsoever.
