Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 17 May 2021

If you interfere impatiently and stop some absorbing occupation, you will destroy your child’s concentration and perseverance – valuable lessons he is teaching himself –, he will be dissatisfied and filled with a sense of disappointment and restlessness, and may very likely find an outlet in deliberate mischief.

Maria Montessori, Maria Montessori Speaks to Parents, p. 42-43
