And so I don't ever want my daughter with a disability to hear me say, "Well, I don't think she's going to understand that very well because she has a hard time learning."
Because if she hears me say she has a hard time learning, she's going to believe that about herself. If she hears me say, "She is learning so well and she is reading great, and she is understanding math and she's putting numbers together." Then she's going to hear that about herself and think, "Yeah, I can do that. I'm pretty good at that." And so, I've seen how my expectation in her especially has really helped her to succeed.
Kids, I mean, really anybody, we can all have a tendency to be lazy. So all we needed is an excuse for why it makes sense that we can't do certain things. "Oh, I can't do that because I have this struggle." And I don't want to give my kids that excuse. I want to give them the empowerment to know that they're smart, that they can learn. And I want to help them believe what I believe about them. I want them to believe it for themselves.
