hashkafa question

Question:
Rav,

I teach young children. Is it correct/incorrect to make a project that has written on it that the child whose picture is displayed is destined to be the next Gadol Hador. Is it honest to say that each child that makes this project is destined for greatness?

Thank you for taking the time to answer.
Answer:

We hope and aspire that each of our children will reach greatness. While not everyone will be the gadol hador, it is a nice form of inspiration and will give the children a good feeling, so as long as it is not blown out of proportion and stressed to much, it would seem ok to write such a line on a child’s project.
