"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Puzzle Craze 26 October 2010
Hui is crazy for puzzles for almost 3 week now. She could sit down quietly for a good 15-45 minutes, solving it all by herself. Yesterday morning, she attempted a new set, 48 pieces of smaller size. I was asked to help out. This morning, she tryout the same piece on her own. No, I didn't set the ball rolling. The puzzles existed since En was one. Hui picked one up and been working on it thereafter.
