What A Child Needs to Succeed

In 1986, a group of researchers published a study of Japanese mothers and mothers in Minneapolis. The mothers were asked to rank the most important things that a child needs to succeed academically. The answers tell a lot about the difference in our two cultures today.

The mothers in Minneapolis chose “ability.”
The mothers in Japan said “effort.”
