I have read about an experiment describing how rats were handled in a very positive way with impressive results in their overall performance. My little boy made countless mistakes when he first attempted reading and now he belives he will never learn to read.

How important is it to develop a positive self concept when attempting a complex task like reading? Can I apply any knowledge learned from the rat experiment?
