Unlocking Your Child’s Genius

  
Last night I went to an information session at my daughters school and at this information session Andrew Fuller clinical psychologist, presented on his latest book “unlocking your child’s genius” 

I have seen /heard Andrew Fuller presenting many times before and each time I have found him to be really good and very passionate and definitely inspiring.
Last night I walked away with many tips that I will try and incorporate into my parenting. For example he said we should never accept the words ” I’ll try ” from our children because ‘try’ is a cop out. They either will do it or they won’t, either way they should commit one way or another. 
The other thing that stayed with me was that Andrew Fuller suggested that every now and then whenever our children may be complaining about something they are not good at, we as parents should quickly inject the word “yet” as in “I’m not good maths. Yet” 
There was lots lots more, too much for one post but it was certainly interesting and as I mentioned before inspiring.

Relief!!! 

Feeling very relieved, the presentation for the innovations workshop is behind me now. I am happy to report that I somehow managed to pull it off and deliver my presentation without freaking out and completely forgetting all my lines. I even managed to answer the audience questions without choking. Feedback from everyone at the workshop was very good and very encouraging, I’m feeling a little drained but very happy and so very relieved!!!   

Nervous 

I have a presentation on Friday at an innovations workshop in front of 300 CEO’s and other heads of agencies, and I am sooo nervous it’s just not funny!!
I have these images in my head of getting all tongue tied and going completely blank, despite that fact that what I am presenting on I know well, it’s what I do.

I would so love to be one of those people that can just get up in front of a room full of people and just look and sound so confident – but that is so not me.
The only solace I can find is that I’m scheduled to go on third, so at least I won’t be sitting there for hours with my nervousness building. Hopefully it will be quick and easy kind of like ripping off a band aid.
