Our teachers often refers to this wonderful quote:
"As parents and as teachers, we have the greatest gift to give children a positive self-concept. We can do this by treating them as though they were already what they could only hope to become. Let them, through our eyes , see themselves as competent, worthy, and in control of their destiny. Give them direction...introduce them to themselves. Allow them to learn who they are and what they can be. If this is accomplished, they will no longer be strangers to themselves. They will feel at home in the world."
