Kids’ interactions with adults may affect their education

What are the shifts teachers can make to create schools that are liberated for children? Liberation begins with a shift in an adults tone, voice, and behaviors.

“The video demonstrates how small changes in adult behavior, both inside and outside of the classroom, can enhance a child’s approach and her ability to learn.”

As a mother, this is why I search for teachers that are kind and nurturing as opposed to strict and rigid because I have seen how Terrence thrives with positive reinforcement. Now the next step is for me to personally maintain a positive outlook with him. Daily I struggle to practice Parenting For Liberation.
