I am always encouraging my girls to think critically and try to figure things out- from math problems to how the lawn mower works (and what makes it stop working and how to fix it!) and other various conundrums.
Well, it is always great to read about other kiddos out there who have figured things out as well, so we thought we’d share one story with you. Mallory Kievman from Manchester, CT has invented a cure for HICCUPS!!! We’ve all had them and they can be anything from fleeting, to annoying to painful. She tried just about every home remedy and old wives’ tale method before inventing her own. Not only does she claim that it works, but she has presented it to the Connecticut Invention Convention and caught the eye of Danny Brier, entrepreneur who helps young start-up companies with his own knowledge and experience. For the full story check out the DOGO article with great information on hiccups and diagrams of the human body to explain how they work.
Now, what has always bothered you that you think YOU can fix? What is interesting out there that YOU want to improve? Why wait until YOU are an adult? If this kid can do it, SO CAN YOU! Good luck!
