EVERYONE LIKES A HAPPY ENDING -excerpt from my upcoming book

          A couple of years ago, I interviewed a small boy, around 8 or so and his mother. We will call him Joseph. Joseph was a very angry and frustrated young man. To be honest, the anger in his little face was overwhelming. We chatted and Mom told me that he hated reading and he concurred with great passion!  I asked him a few questions about what kind of books he liked and such to open up the conversation. The next question I asked was a real eye opener, "When did you last enjoy reading?"
      
          To my astonishment, he answered "Kindergarten."
Another one of the things I do, is to check earlier education in all
subjects to see where the student "Fell Off the Rails", so to speak. Well, it was clear, this little boy had last loved reading in kindergarten. What happened???

          I found a simple book for him and he read it to me. I asked him if that book was okay? I also asked him if he would be willing to come and work with me for 30 minutes so we could see how it went with the tutoring. He agreed to 30 minutes. We took it very slow and we took turns reading pages to each other. That is a great tool, by the way! Puts less pressure on the student!

        To make a long story short, I still have that student. He has been with me for over 3 years now and is currently in 5th grade. He is quite smart and reads very well. He is not an angry student anymore, but smiles quite often. Now that's what I call "A Happy Ending".

        Here's to a Great New Year! Please feel free to write or send me comments. This short story is excerpt from my upcoming book.

With Love,

The late great Greek philosopher Epicurus once said: “You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.” Being happy is not an option, it is a choice. We are born in this world not because we have to suffer all the bad things in life, but to do something to these bad things. If you want to overcome sadness, be happy. It may be easier said than done, but at least you chose to be happy. Happiness, after all, is free.

I didn't like happy endings in books. For example, books which have a bad endings are most memoryble than books with happy ends.
