    I loved this article in scientific american http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=the-secret-to-raising-smart-kids and I think it is a must read for everyone especially parents or parents to be.
    I would be interested in hearing anyones thoughts on the article.
    I thought is was great and really helped me put into perspective some of the things that I have had a fixed mind set on, and that only if I see these as obstacles that can be overcome with effort.

    I can find myself envying them as well, than I remind myself that I can switch my fixed mind set on certain things into an effort base... like today I was like I am doomed to be alone forever, than I was like wooo wait there man, I just cant maintain a healthy relationship as I currently am, I just need to figure out what I need to do inorder to be a healthy particapant in a relationship.
