Whether we’re parents, grandparents, caregivers, or teachers, we need to remember the importance of encouraging the child’s independence.
I love this quote:
“We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.” Maria Montessori (Education for a New World)
I created a word art freebie based on that quote. For printing, feel free to download the word art freebie without watermark. If you’d like to share the image online, please use the image with the watermark. Of course, I always appreciate when you link to my post and Facebook page, too.
