Outliers is correct

Even parent coercion is not enough.

Outlier’s talks about circumstances. Consider: Tiger Wood’s Father pushing him; Andre Agassi’s father pushing him. For every success story, how many stories are there of the the child dropping piano lessons, or tennis lessons, or karate, swimming, etc.?

Ineffective coersion is a parable. Almost a guarantee.

  1. Excellent! I really dislike pushy parents. That’s why I don’t golf! I hope all music parents read your little blog. Encourage and celebrate; that’s the best parental approach.
