Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 10 June 2020

A child's liberty should have at its limit the interests of the group to which he belongs.... We should therefore prevent a child from doing anything which may offend or hurt others, or which is impolite or unbecoming. But everything else, every act that can be useful in any way whatever, may be expressed. It should not only be permitted but it should be observed by the teacher.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 51
