Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 7 April 2021

Whenever possible, the child has a tendency to render himself independent of the help of others, especially of the adult. Then, in acquiring this independence, he seeks for the personal effort. This means that he learns to function by himself. If he cannot acquire this independence he does not exist as an individual – for the characteristic of an individual is one who can function by himself.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 27
