Self-Controlled Kids Prosper as Adults: "Fatalistically Depressing"?

The full interview of Sesame Street's true blue monster, Grover, by Paul Solman. Read the full write-up here: http://to.pbs.org/ka6pfa Paul talks to Sesame Street's Grover about learning how to wait. Paul Solman: So how do you teach little kids, kids your age, 6, 7, to wait? Grover: Well, I say, I say: You know what? We are going to play a game. We are going to sit on this step right over here and we are just going to sit there for five seconds, just five seconds, not long at all. And then I say: Now, let us sit for another five seconds. How was that? Not so bad! Not so bad! No, no, because it is, it is really not that hard to wait once you get to the end of waiting. Paul: So this is like sometimes when you're too angry and someone says: Count to ten. Grover: Yeah. Paul: And then that feeling goes down and you're not so angry anymore. Grover: You know, I have no idea what I am talking about right now!
