Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 27 August 2021

The schoolchild, being continually discouraged and scolded, ends by acquiring that mixture of distrust of his own powers and of fear which is called shyness, and which later, in the grown man, takes the form of discouragement and submissiveness, of incapacity to put up the slightest moral resistance.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 118
