What adults can learn from kids Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs "childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids' big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups' willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.

"When my son first started at Boxberry he was very shy and timid. He would cover his face and hide if anyone spoke to him or if it was his turn to speak in a group. In public school he would have been lost in the numbers; at Boxberry he is himself, he matters, and knowing that has made all the difference. At this year's play he was one of the loudest singers in the chorus!"
