Goofball and Genius – One and the Same

Goofball and Genius – One and the Same

“Nurture the Genius.  Unleash the Goofball.”  That is the motto of Romp n’ Roll.  It is a wonderful motto, but one that regrettably is sometimes misinterpreted by mothers and fathers.  While parents invariably see nurturing the genius as desirable, they often view unleashing the goofball as problematical and even counterproductive to the other goal.

The reality is that the two are inseparable.  History shows us that the people who end up changing the world – the great political, social, scientific, technological, artistic, and even sports revolutionaries – are always regarded as goofballs, until they turn out to be right, and then they are revered as geniuses.

So if you want your child to develop into the kind of person who will be extremely adept at functioning in the world the way it is, you have many early education programs from which to choose.  But if you want your child to develop into the kind of person who can figure out how to make the world a better place, then Romp n’ Roll is clearly your best option.
