A friend of mine told me a story yesterday about his 6 year old son. Last year in school his son had been the master of rebellion, not doing what the teacher asked, not lining up and holding the rope when out for a walk. A positive James Dean in the making.
This year, the son has been completely different. He does the school work that his teacher asks. he follows the rules in the playground. He is a completely different student.
So much so that his father asked him why the difference?
His son’s response. “It’s because the teacher likes me.”
Out of the mouths of babes and straight into the world of the working stiff. Don’t forget: “They won’t care what you know until they know that you care about them.”
