No Pain… No Gain?


Children in general learn to not touch a hot stove by touching or nearly touching one. Not by someone telling them to not touch the stove. The experience is much more effective in imprinting the message in their memory than words will ever be. Do we do our children a favor by totally protecting them from the experience of emotional and physical pain? hot stove

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
