By Nature, People are Learning Animals

By nature, people are learning animals. Birds fly; fish swim; humans think and learn. Therefore, we do not need to motivate children into learning by wheedling, bribing, or bullying.

We do not need to keep picking away at their minds to make sure they are teaming. What we need to do and all we need to do – is to give children as much help and guidance as they need and ask for, listen respectfully when they feel like talking and then get out of the way.

We can trust them to do the rest.
