Ellen Key Quotes

For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk . . .What it does mean is to be taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.

At every step the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses.
