"If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort and keep on learning. That way their children don't have to be slaves of praise; they will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence." - from New Kinds of Smart (Bill Lucas and Guy Claxton).
