“We are more aware of negative things that trigger our partner and more open to seeing from each other’s point of view. We learned how to listen to each other, relate to how the other is feeling, and understand what they are trying to communicate.”

Inside the Lesson

In this episode, Bobb Biehl—an executive mentor who has consulted over 5,000 executives, spent 50,000 in private training sessions, and developed 50 tools for personal and organizational development—exposes why fourth grade is the most important year of your life. For 80% of the executives he interviewed, fourth grade was a tremendous turning point in their lives. Before age nine, children possess a child’s heart and a child’s brain. At age nine, though, a child develops the ability to concentrate, and they possess a child’s heart but an adult brain. What happens in fourth grade—positive or negative—has the power to impact a person for the rest of his life.

To unpack the effects of this pivotal year on your mental and emotional health as an adult, ask yourself questions like, “How would you describe your nine-year-old self?” and “What is the most common feeling you experienced at that age?” Discover the correlation between your comfort zone as a nine-year-old and your comfort zone today as an adult. For parents of fourth graders, there are three big things you can do to maximize this crucial year: (1) give your child unconditional love, (2) teach your child to both lead and follow, and (3) encourage your child to have friendships with both boys and girls. Mastering these skills with grace and integrity will serve your child well her whole life.
