“Behind every young child who believes in himself is a parent who believed first”.

Encouragement - one of the pillars in education and positive parenting.

Thomas Edison

One day as a small child, Thomas Edison came home from school and gave a paper to his mother….

He said to her: “Mom, my teacher gave this paper to me and 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 child is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have good enough teachers to train him. Please teach him yourself”.

His mother did just that, until she fell ill and passed away.

Many years after Edison’s mother died, he became one of the greatest inventors of the century.

One day he was going through some of her things and found the folded letter that his old teacher wrote his mother that day. He opened it….

The message written on the letter was: “Your son is mentally deficient. We cannot let him attend our school anymore. He is expelled”.

Edison became emotional reading it and then wrote in his diary:

“Thomas A. Edison was a mentally deficient child whose mother turned him into the genius of the Century”.

A positive word of encouragement can help change someone’s entire life....
