A Quote from the educator, John Holt

No use to shout at them to pay attention. If the situations, the materials, the problems before the child do not interest him, his attention will slip off to what does interest him, and no amount of exhortation of threats will bring it back. -- educator, John Holt

A quote to ponder as we move into a relaxed day of writing an essay for me and Alexander ( for our religion course)...Chinese study for Thomas ( for Open University)..Anthony starting beach biology...( we will be collecting shells in Wollongong sometime over the next few weeks!).

Great quote. That John Holt sure does get it, doesn't he?
