12 Oct “Are we there yet?!”
Patience is a virtue, a skill and sometimes a thing children might not have sometimes. Whether you are on a road trip or both children come home and want to tell you about their day at the same time, or they just want something RIGHT NOW! I spoke with Jason DeRusha and Kylie Bearse this morning on the results of the Marshmallow Test. You may be familiar with this test as researchers have been doing it for 50 years. It gives a child the option to have one marshmallow now or two marshmallows if they wait 15 mins, testing their ability to delay gratification. Interestingly they say not only are children increasing their time by six seconds each year, but they also have correlated the results to increased SAT scores, decreased divorce rates and better responses to stress.
