Some thoughts from Dr. Montessori

I thought these random thoughts from Dr. Montessori might be of some help:

"Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed."

"The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.'"

"If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men."

"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world."

"Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war."

"The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil."

"One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child."

"That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life."
