Despite its small size, Israel has become a remarkable center for innovation. The long list of innovations that have come out of Israel includes everything from cherry tomatoes and drip irrigation to the USB flash drive and the Waze traffic app. Although many attribute Israel’s outstanding achievements to its technologically advanced military, tech insider Arieli argues that it’s the way Israelis raise their children to be independent that builds the resiliency and creativity needed for innovation. Drawing on her experience as an entrepreneur and a mother of three rambunctious boys, Arieli looks at Israeli child rearing and shows how Israelis are taught to be comfortable with experimentation, failure and learning, mental and physical risk-taking, and a positive—some would say blind—belief that things will be all right.
