I'm still in shock from reading the marshmellow story the first time. As soon as i have children and they are that age I am going to try it =]] I like David Brooks. He should write a book.
I agree I'm totally going to try it but why wait for your kids i have plenty of victims... i mean cousins.
These articles were very interesting I've always known the importance of character, but for it to have such an impact on success in our society is astonishing.
i dont have any kids but i really want to have 13 kids. i think that is a good number. now i dont have to work :)
The marshmallow article seems to prove the Bible right. Both agree that disciplined children have a much better chance at succeeding in the real world.
I love the marshmallow article. But unfortunately I think I would be the one who ate the one marshmallow and didn't have self-control and wait. Maybe I'll end up in jail soon. haha
I agree with Kristen. I cant wait to try that with my kids, after i decide to have them that is.Barry you really shouldnt have kids... I can see it now you have 13 and you name some of them after the Transformers and then you leave them on the side of the road just so you can wonder what they are talking about (dane cook)
I used 3 of these articles in the last paper. I really enjoyed the marshmellow one though. Interesting...but come on, marshmellows...sooo good...cant resist...HA.
Comparing lifelong success with marshmallows is crazy but it is obviously true. I have always thought that patience was a virtue....guess it's true!!
i love these articles. i used all of them in my essay and i actally enjoyed reading them. usually i just get bored or toss them to the side.
