Quote of the day

"Long ago, when home-schooling our kids, I learned that we donít teach kids anything. We simply open the doors for them, to look inside the room (or not, as the inclination takes them).

The trick is knowing how to make them want to step through the open door; but that trick is not easily learned. And what makes it even more difficult is that the trick is different for each and every kid."--- kim du toit

Well said.


Very well said. Kids have a natural curiosity and want to learn about everything..that's why they ask a jillion questions a minute. But we usually have that curisoity stiffled by the time they get to school and there if they ask too many questions they are doped up because they have an attention deficiency disorder. Then we wonder why little Johnny cannot read for shit
