THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS AT ACTON ACADEMY

Laura Sandefer

July 31, 2013

“Every child is a genius.”

Without a doubt, each child is capable of a Hero’s Journey. Each child has a unique and valuable spirit. Each child has gifts to be nurtured and honed.

What each child does matters. This is why we insist on excellence and ask, “Is that the best you can do?” instead of stamping a grade on their work and being done with it.

But it’s not only the children who have this genius within. Each parent and each guide does, too.

Have you embraced your own Journey lately? Have you listened to that quiet voice within yearning for new adventure, new growth?

Remember that the best parent is a happy human – learning, growing, curious about the world and life.

Feel free to look in the mirror today and say, “There is genius within me.” And remember that what you do with this truth matters.
