No More Tears!

The tears at the table were my undoing. I couldn't take torturing her any more, so I decided enough was enough, and became determined to do something about it. I was going to stop making learning a chore, and find ways to make it fun and interesting for my daughter. I wasn't sure how I would do it, but I knew there had to be a way.

I found myself questioning why kids didn't have the freedom to choose what they wanted to learn and why they couldn't learn in ways that worked for them. Learning is a natural process, and forcing them to do things in unnatural ways didn't make sense to me. In reality, it seemed counterproductive!

If kids learn best through play, and we make them learn in the most dull and formal ways imaginable, how does that help them?

In my opinion, it is the least effective method they can be offered!
Why not help them learn in enjoyable ways they can relate to?
