by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.
“We must teach children how to think, not what to think. Our role is not to pass on knowledge, but rather wisdom. Wisdom is knowledge applied. When we only give children knowledge, we are telling them what to think, what they are supposed to know, and what we want them to believe is true. When we give children wisdom, however, we do not tell them what to know or what is true – rather, we tell them how to get their own truth.
I envision an educational system based upon developing children’s abilities and skills rather than their memories. Children are our guides; we should give them the ability to discover and create their own truths.”
~ from their book Indigo Children
When we play with children we speak their language and honor their creative voice. We encourage them to express their innate wisdom and discover life through their intuitive lens.
Have a Playful Monday!
