All achieved without the slightest pressure because its
done naturally through games. And all achieved at the time when
your childs growing mind is like a sponge soaking
up all the playful stimulation you can provide.
What you do in the early years becomes the foundation for
your childs ability to learn for the rest of his or her
life. We have aimed to give you the best possible advice and activities
for these formative years.
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you,
They belong not to you.
You may give them your love
But not your thoughts
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies
But not their souls,
For their souls live in the House of Tomorrow
Which you cannot visit,
Not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
But seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward
Nor tarries with yesterday.
You are bows from which your children,
as living arrows, are sent forth.
Khalil Gibran in The Prophet
