How wonderful and fresh this approach to rearing a child, giving it freedom and trusting them to do the right thing. We have become so conditioned to our fenced-in society that we have forgotten that this used to be the norm. It was for me anyway, until I went to school at age 6. Now I see children as young as five, having anxieties to read and write!? Why would they be subjected and forced at a younger and younger age to sit in classrooms and perform a highly complex task such as literacy.
