"Children need safety. But safety isn't all they need. Children also need discovery. They need challenge. They need adventure, joy, surprise, and comfort. They need hand on learning and trial and error. They need all the variety of experiences that, together, add up to childhood." -Jarrod Green 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/xywah

“Children are not adults-in-the-making; they are not clay to be molded. They are children, and that is that. Our task is to wonder at them, to learn about ourselves through our relationships with them." -Robin Grille 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/xwvua

“The role of the elder is to create the space for the glorious mistakes of the young." -Arne Rubinstein 🌻 Learning Within Community (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/xvn83
