“It is easy to substitute our will for that of the child by means of suggestion or coercion; but when we have done this we have robbed him of his greatest right, the right to construct his own personality.”
(Maria Montessori Via Gainsborough Family Chiropractic – Children, ADD/ADHD, and Chiropractic.)
Don’t 100% agree with everything my friends at GFChiropractic say. They are awesome, “we” are over medicating our kids but I do think sometimes it’s relevant. I’m conflicted on the issue.
Either way this quote is about the most brilliant thing I’ve read in a very long time. Have to read up on Montessori more.
