Researchers say too much praise creates unmotivated children (poll)

Independent filmmaker, Ramona Persaud, home-schools her 2 year old son, Rohan, and 5 year old daughter, Anjali. Her latest film, "Grey Matters" looks at brain based learning for children. Persaud is not an advocate of slathering her children with praise.
