When reading Caroline Arnold’s book, Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Change Your Life Permanently, I was thrilled to find a quote that related so well to children’s growth and development.
“Transformation is a process, not an event. And why would you want to skip the process? Consciously nurturing change makes us smarter, more self-aware, and builds a powerful foundation for continued growth. Being able to repeat steps A and B is the magic formula for making our achievements permanent.
The key to lasting transformation is not speed or force but nurture.” (xxii)
