Baseball players often talk about the “sweet spot” of the bat. Find it, and you can make the ball go exactly where you want it to go, almost effortlessly. Did you know there is a sweet spot to teaching and learning, too? It is teaching which produces the least resistance to learning which in turn produces maximum understanding. And, just like in sports, it takes a little experimentation to find it, but is a thing of beauty when you get it right. Have you found your child’s “sweet spot” of joyful learning?
