Kids, pets know persistence pays
By Byron McNutt

ONE OF THE most important traits we want our children and grandchildren to learn is that persistence is a key ingredient of success. We urge our children to “never, never give up” and to try, try again.
As a result, we know a lot of kids who have learned the lesson too well. They know three nos might mean a maybe, or even a yes. If they persist, they know their parents will eventually give in to their demands. People with pets know that even a pet dog can get its way simply by being persistent. The dog knows that if it whines long enough, he’ll get a table scrap or be let outdoors.
