"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.

A Cleaning Sunday 12 June 2011
Hui joined us in cleaning our home. I never 'teach' her do housework. She loves to be part of us when we clean the place up. On the contrary, En doesn't find housework fun and it doesn't come naturally to her. The difference was, we 'taught' En how to do it.
