If you give a child an answer,
    you solve a problem for a day.
If you teach a child to solve problems,
    you prepare her for a life.

 
 
 

About Mr. Steve
I have always been fascinated by how kids learn. I enjoy working with kids and been told I have a gift for it. Like most people I failed to recognize early enough in life that I could actuallly make a living at what I enjoy. I started my own consulting company along with my wife back in 1996 and we had some success and survived my mistakes. While working at Bell Labs they had a 30th anniversary party for one of the directors and he was asked: "What is the biggest change you have seen in the past 30 years?" We were expecting some particular technological breakthrough, but his answer was much more inciteful, and disturbing. "Thirty years ago when I left at 5:00pm the parking lot was empty. Now I leave at 11:00pm and the parking lot is 1/3 full." Those who suffer most from this societal shift are the children. This is part of the reason I started The Cause Card to support children and their families.
