If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk.

He'll probably ask you to read him a story, so, you'll read to him from one of your books.

And he'll ask to see the pictures and, when he looks at the pictures, he'll get so excited he'll want to draw one of his own.

What, then, can we conclude from all of this?

If you give a child a cookie, he (or she) will probably want to play the drum.

If you give the child a drum, he'll probably want to march in a parade.

If you give him a chance to march in a parade,
he may suddenly decide to lead the parade!

Question: What qualities distinguish those "ordinary" people who, in a spur-of-the-moment decision, take a leadership role? Can that instinct be taught or is it simply part of a person's makeup?

You decide.

Conclusion: Give a "special needs" child a chance—you may witness spontaneous leadership

even at age four !!
