Developmental Influences on Practicing
« on: July 24, 2020, 12:33:50 PM »
Does anyone have any resources on the influences of development on the practice habits of children at an early age?  Books, websites or podcasts?

Thanks - I am a social worker who plays the piano, but also assists parents in helping children overcome their struggles with practicing.  Just in case you were curious..

There might be this experiment:

Lazlo Polgar raised his three daughters in a chess cocoon and they all became grandmasters. 

Apparently they developed a true passion and loved what they did.  Of course they lived in a culture that highly valued chess and hard work.
