Preparing your child for success in life is like planting a fragile sapling and nurturing it so that it steadily transforms into a tall, sturdy oak tree. You start by picking a good site that gets plenty of sun and is shielded from pests. Enrich the soil with compost and aerate it. Nurture the sapling so that it takes root. Take care to water it regularly, and buffer it from strong winds when it is still delicate. Although the grandeur of any tree is above the ground, the real action is below, out of sight. Roots divide and spread out, forming a strong foundation capable of withstanding the forces of nature.
