A Note to Parents
Mary Kay Ash, who created one of the most successful cosmetic
companies in America, had a wonderful idea. One of the most crucial
concepts she taught her sales team was to imagine ever y person
they met had a banner on their foreheads declaring "Make Me Feel
Special".

Imagine if we applied her ideas to our children; the y would be filled
with a sense of hope and optimism and confidence; they would grow
into balanced and secure indi viduals who would in turn, make
wonderful parents. If children recognize and appreciate their gifts,
talent and endless potential, it frees them up to see t he same things
in others. And no – they will not be creating arrogant monsters!
Arrogance is usually a cover up for massive insecurit y anyway.
However, they may be shining a light in the dimness of someone
else's soul and letting them see their own talents.

Magic is a skill that is fairly easy to learn and can help children to feel
good about themselves. It will help develop hand eye coordination
and communication skills. Work with your children as they practice
these magic tricks. Gently critique them as they learn new routines
and encourage them to practice. Set aside a time of the day for
practicing. Keep it going for about fifteen minutes and then take a
break for about five or ten minutes. This would be a good time to help
them think about the story that goes along with the trick. Then have
them practice the same trick for another fifteen minutes. The trick will
be easier after a short break.

Practicing magic will help children learn that they have to work to
achieve their goals. The tricks in thi s book were designed to be easy
so children can start to de velop the disciplines they will need later on.

My Inspiration

When I was in the fifth grade, I saw something astounding. It was the
most amazing thing I've ever seen, and little did I know, this event
would change my life forever.

My life's ambition would be based on this one event. What could I
have seen that had such a strong impact on my life?

I saw Kermit the Frog riding a bicycle and I wondered how he was
able to do that. This was a magical moment.

So, my dream has been trying to create magical moments like that.
By combining magic, special effects and puppetry I've been able to
achieve my dream. If you would like to see how I’m achieving me
dream, just look up KidsComedian.com.

I'd love to spark something in your imagination.
