fan the spark (william martin)

Posted on Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Your children plan their own education,

like it or not.

You must learn to cooperate within that plan.

If they are drawing,

they become artists.

If they are reading,

they become students.

If they are investigating something,

they become scientists.

If they are helping prepare a meal,

they become chefs.

Whatever they are doing,

they are learning.

And it is, for them,

pure joy.
