Your mind and your vision

Because John Holt was SO interested in children, every time he interacted with one, he saw a child interacting with a fascinated adult. THIS is one of the things unschoolers need to remember. When the adult brings boredom, cynicism, criticism and doubt to the table, that's what he'll see and that's how he'll see it, and it will be no fault of the child's whatsoever.

  1. Thanks for the reminding. So many times in the past, I could not get that in my interaction with my children, cause I could not be well myself. As you say it, it's important to remember. Well, perhaps could you make a magnet? Or maybe I'll do one by myself. ;-)
    And thank you for the photo, those friends-trees are great.
