When we look at a child, we can only see the child’s potential. We cannot see the child’s talent. That has not yet been created or developed. This episode examines Dr. Suzuki’s quote that “[O]ne cannot look at a small child and randomly choose what he does well and what he does poorly.”
This episode is part of the “Reflections” series of podcast episodes, which are short, minutes long reflections about a quote or other thought from Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy or writing. The purpose of these reflections is to give parents and teachers a chance to spend a few minutes thinking about how great the impact might be on the world and our children with merely a slight moment of reflection about a behavior, thought, or attitude.
