A letter from the Author…

Dear Reader,
Thank you for your interest in my book, The Case Method Miracle. I wrote the book to share what I had discovered about one of the most known teaching methods in the business and law schools around the world, the case method. The case method does not lose its potency when simplified to fit young children, quite the opposite! Simple is often more powerful than complex in many areas of like. I found out that the case method is perhaps at its best when it capitalizes on a young child’s capacity for imagination and putting himself in the shoes of the case story protagonist, when the method is simplified to its bare bones.

Parenting is difficult. There are as many approaches as there are different children. Life assaults us at full speed, and when we do not know what to do, we often forget everything we had read! At least this is where I often found myself as a new mom. I wanted to use something simple, something I could apply universally. I remembered how at Harvard Business School the method to teach us students how to make wise business decisions for the case protagonist in the business case stories worked super well. Yes, well enough to keep Harvard Business School a top business school choice for the past hundred years. In addition, I realized that children love stories. Why not combine the two? I did.

You do not have to be a Harvard graduate to use the case method, anyone can tell a one-minute story with a question in the end. The simpler the better. There is no need for big words and complicated dilemmas. You can share the case stories whenever it is a good time for you and your child, whether having breakfast in the morning, driving in the car, cuddling on the sofa, or at bedtime. In the process, you bond with your child as you spend more one-on-one time with him and he experiences your authentic interest in his life. You gain confidence and respect as a parent and experience less drama with every day conflicts as you can truly let them go for your child to own and process. Your child builds self-reliance and gains the strength of character he needs to make wise decisions later in life.

While I propose you change the game of parenting away from telling your child what to do, to ushering your child to pause and think before making his own decision, I do not recommend you replace one with the other. By no means, keep the tools you use and add some case stories to the mix. The more you introduce case stories, first perhaps starting with the examples in my book, the more the case method ushers your child to discover the wise thing to do, then self-monitor and assume responsibility for his choices.

Traditionally, parenting approaches have focused on managing kids, disciplining and controlling them. In contrast, the case method approach teaches the children to think for themselves, starting from the very basic decisions. This is the genius of the approach, teaching the child to think for himself.

I dare you to try. You have nothing to lose.
