It’s so interesting. We used to think that
every child was born with a certain brain that defined their intelligence and that limited
what they could achieve. We don’t believe that anymore. Now we believe that every child
comes with a brain that can grow and grow as the child learns, as the child pushes past
boundaries, as the child gets out of his or her comfort zone and learns new things. In
fact, we know now that every time a child stretches themselves to learn, their brains
form new connections. And they can get smarter and smarter over time.
