“When you’re that young, it doesn’t take a lot to be encouraged, or discouraged . . . they raised my game . . . they saw something in me I didn’t see in myself.”
(Sir Ken Robinson, educationalist)
“If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence”
(Children Learn What They Live by Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D)
