Parenting Tip

This Indra Nooyi profile on WSJ has an unexpected little treasure, a good parenting tip on building your child's critical thinking abilities.

Around the family dinner table in Madras, India, Ms. Nooyi's mother used to challenge her and her sister to describe what they would do to "change the world" if they were elected prime minister, or to another post.

Then her mother would evaluate the answers to determine which of her daughters to support. "I can't tell you how hard my sister and I competed to earn her vote!" Ms. Nooyi recalled.

Now that she is CEO, maybe Ms Nooyi will put her childhood lesson to good use in finding a way to make something "green" and healthy out of Pepsi's flagship drink.
