We want to find a way to live with each other so that we can feel good about ourselves and help the people we love feel good about themselves. We want to find a way that makes it possible for our children to be caring and responsible. Children have an inbuilt drive for discovery. Encourage your child to observe the world and to feel a sense of wonder for everything in it. (The Amazing Child page 34)

Did you know it is the power to possess which is a natural part of a child’s growing awareness that may make it difficult for a child to share, especially young ones? True sharing implies empathy; the ability to get into another’s mind and see things from their view point. Children are seldom capable of true empathy under the age of six. But prior to that stage they can share if we condition them to do so. Our understanding and support will lead our children be generous.

Parents and children nourish each other. Parent experienced the repeated childhood and pick up the happiness when they accompany with child’s growth. Maria Montessori said, “Only through action, to show a higher level of life”. Through real life experiences, education and social practice, we help guide children to carry out genuine acts of love and respect for others.
