I thought this was worth everyone's view, it reminds us of the sheer innocence of childhood.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."

"When I was their age, I could draw like Raphael, but it took me a lifetime to learn to draw like them."

This is a time lapse of four plus hours of a child in a playroom.

I can't wait to show this to my young grandchildren. Especially Julia who just turned four years old. She will really like this.

A few days ago, I asked my developmental psych. professor to explain what Montessori schools were about.. I already knew to a certain extent, but with him being the socialist/subjectivist he is, I was curious to hear his thoughts. He said they were built around the idea that children are "little explorers", which I think this video exemplifies excellently. The way he phrased it led me to believe he thought there were plenty of other premises to base your approach to teaching children, but I see no other.

Blake:

Joan Beck wrote a book called How to Raise a Brighter Child which I found quite rewarding.

There were two articles that were written in the Objectivist about the same theme.

How to Raise a Brighter Child by Joan Beck (Beatrice Hessen)

Teaching Montessori in the Home by Elizabeth G. Hainstock (Beatrice Hessen)
