hippo-pot: awesomacious: The sweetest granddaughter btw the marshmallow test has been linked to class - kids from wealthier families are essentially more likely to trust that they will actually get the marshmallow if they wait whereas poorer kids are generally more used to like, if you have food, eat it. and being wealthier correlates to being more successful later in life because our system is broken. so THAT’s probably why the marshmallow test is a predictor - because it tells you who is wealthy, not who is innately primed to be successful Classic correlation does not equal causation: What is the loveliest thing a child has ever said to you? Richard Muller, Prof Physics, UC Berkeley, author "Now, The Physics of Time" Updated Aug 2, 2017 Originally Answered: What is the loveliest thing your child has ever said? "Would you like one, Grandpa?" OK- it was not my child but my 3-year-old granddaughter, but I still think it counts. I had read about the marshmallow test. You give a child a marshmallow, and then say that if she (Layla, in this case) could keep from eating it for 10 minutes, you'll give her a second. So I tried that test with my granddaughter (not with marshmallows, but with chocolate, which she likes much more) According to extensive experiments, children who "pass" the "marshmallow test" are far more successful in later life. They have learned a fundamental truth in life, that delayed gratification can lead to a far better long-term outcome. She sat and watched the chocolate. The 10-minute hourglass finally emptied, and she had succeeded. She asked for her second piece of chocolate. I gave it to her, and she now had two in her hand. That's when she looked up at me and asked, "Would you like one, Grandpa?" Needless to say, from that moment on I would readily give my life for her. 1.3m views View Upvoters View Sharers hippo-pot: awesomacious: The sweetest granddaughter btw the marshmallow test has been linked to class - kids from wealthier families are essentially more likely to trust that they will actually get the marshmallow if they wait whereas poorer kids are generally more used to like, if you have food, eat it. and being wealthier correlates to being more successful later in life because our system is broken. so THAT’s probably why the marshmallow test is a predictor - because it tells you who is wealthy, not who is innately primed to be successful Classic correlation does not equal causation

Trinity is a 3 year old girl that got diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer in July 2018. This week a tattoo shop, gave her and her mom an unforgettable experience by giving them their own person 4 hour “tattoo session”.: 1 hr 4/10/19 Where do l even start!? Today has been a month + in the making and it was such an incredibly special and fun day! Cancer has taken and continues to take so much from Trinity and our family, so we try to think outside of the box to come up with super fun, once in a lifetime things to do, see, or go to. I orginally reached out to Ink Wolves with an idea, not sure if they would even reply, and if they did reply I wasn't sure if they would think I was crazy! To my delight they jumped right into this crazy idea with me! I wanted to let Trinity get some "tattoos" because she loves the ones her daddy has. Ink Wolves took it upon themselves to get Tattoo markers, practice with them, have 2 artists come in on their day off, have snacks, and even jam out to Disney music for over 4 hours with a 3 year old who is fighting cancer, all while making sure Trinity had the BEST day! Never in a million years did I ever think I would take my 3 year old toddler to a tattoo shop, and never in a million years did I think that her and I would get our first tattoos together! But let me tell you I am SO thankful that we took a big jump out of the box and just "went for it" because we all had the BEST DAY TODAY!!!!! Thank you again Ink Wolves team! Many more pictures to come! #Trinitytough #WeFightTogether uesseu he wrong Trinity is a 3 year old girl that got diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer in July 2018.
