I was one of the lucky ones who grew up thinking of education and learning as fun and interesting. My folks made sure of that by lovingly nurturing me years before I began my formal education. They were never the type to push flash cards in front of my face to try to turn me into a little genius. Instead, I was always allowed to be a kid--but a kid whose mom and dad observed her pet areas of interest and encouraged them. We found people in society who were on the same page with us--and others who definitely were NOT. That last group was known to make trouble for me. However, I ended up coming out the winner in the long run. I'm 60 now and still learning something new on a regular basis!
