How to relate this to kids:

When things are going badly for a student, they don't want to read a book to find the answer that will help them get through that rough time they are experiencing. In truth, it's not what they need at that moment.


They just need a phrase, motto – some nugget of wisdom – to cling to that will keep them moving forward, if only by an inch, until they are ready to read the whole book, whatever book, that will make a longtime difference in their lives. For now, just give them something little that will help them focus on the positive and the good and then back it up with sincerity.


Thank You!
