DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS
School failure is an abyss and swallows young children ... A hand is needed to catch them. To push them gently on the other side, the shore of success. We can save some of them. Best early, before they taste the bitter flavor and their soul darkens. And even later it ain't useless, there is always enough time.
The difference is subtle at the beginning - in infancy. It intensifies in elementary school. It gets overemphasized in high school, during puberty. The difference widens, deepens, becomes the yardstick, the main criterion of selection or non-selection and exclusion. Them and the others - the different... Those who can and the different who can't... Those who savor the successes and the different swallowing failures that become one with their own skin , with their soul... The others - the different - are not a few, they can be less... The smart kid who creates expectations among parents and himself. Starts to show problems in learning. Tries, but cannot succeed. Refuses to try more. Losing the assessment of peers, teachers, parents. He loses his self-esteem. His self-image breaks. Identifies the negative feelings with the school itself. Hates ... Denies ... Considers prison and tries to escape, to escape from contempt. It changes all of his emotional world. "Secondary psychological problems" they call it... And the getaway ... There's always someone out there to play the role of the standard, the alternative proposal. "It did not work at school, so what? Life needs other things to be happy." The juvenile is not far away... They were locked in their close personal visual. Now they are available to see through the dear eyes of the other . It lasted two or three minutes, but it seemed for centuries. He raised his head and a wrinkle was crossing his teenage forehead. He turned to Sonya and looked at her deeply. His voice sounded hoarse: " Mother, I let you down, you deserved a better son". "My son, I blamed you, you are the gift of God I neglected". The change took place in his soul.
He replaced the impotence inside him with a new expression: "knowledge gaps". Impotence you can not win, you only accept it. But gaps in knowledge, you can find ways to cover them...
