Cito di Pense wrote:
Early childhood development is something people have studied quite a bit, and quite a bit is known. Then your question is "how can we best foster good early childhood development?"


Now, early childhood development? Consists of what? The conventional approach is to use puzzles, physical manipulation with some goal that is apparent. Square block in the square hole, and so it goes. Determination of object shapes and space shapes. Determination of orientation.
The key to conventional development is achieving the goal. The teacher encourages the student to concentrate and finish without delay. Whereupon, another more complicated puzzle is provided. The child is taught that the teacher values only "good results".
This reflects society's blind acceptance of Socrates and Aristotle.

The regular teacher does not educate the child in how they should appreciate his/her mental faculties.
