Just recounting an episode of the many times I told my kids that they can do it when they thought otherwise.
Last night Lin made the list to be a grandmaster at problemsums.com. She joins five others in her school to enter this club. There are no member's privileges here but the work put in to get there has to a child many unobvious benefits. It will take a while for them to become aware.
I don't think I would be able to cajole her to achieve that had she not had a bruising experience at the Orals earlier.
We must always turn adversity to our advantage. We might not always be able to do so immediately, but we must.
