Robert is a successful man in science.

Once,he was interviewed by a newspaper reporter who asked him why he could be so creative. ?He said that it all came from an experience with his mother when he was about two years old. That day, when he was trying to take a bottle of milk out of the fridge, he fell down. And the milk spilled all over the kitchen floor, which turned out to be a sea of milk. When his mother came into the kitchen, instead of shouting at him, she said,Robert,you have made a great and wonderful mess. I have hardly seen such a huge puddle?of milk. Well, since it has already been done, would you like to get down and play in the milk for a few minutes before we clean it up?” Robert did as what his mother said. After a few minutes, his mother said,You know, Robert, whenever you make a mess like this, you have to clean it up at last and put everything to its right order. We could use a sponge?or a mop.Which do you prefer?He chose the sponge and together they cleaned up the milk. His mother then said,You’d better learn how to carry the milk bottle with two small hands, OK? Let’s go out in the backyard and fill the bottle with water and see if you can find a way to carry it without dropping it.” The little boy learned that if he held the bottle at the top near the lip?with both hands, he could make it. At that moment Robert know he didn’t need to be afraid to make mistakes. Instead,he learned that mistakes were just chances to learn something new, and that is what scientific experiments are all about. Although sometimes the experimentdoesn’t work,we usually can learn something meaningful from it. Wouldn’t it be great if all parents would do the same as Robert’s mother does?
