You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

 

(on children in “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran)

During 1st grade to 4th grade of primary school, children are learning to read, write, essential math and problem solving skills. Children should learn to explore the world around them and are given opportunities to develop creative and social skills in these early grades of primary school.

Teacher should create a safe and happy environment where children are valued, praised and encouraged rather than just instructed to recite lessons.

The pictures above documented children who learn math in 4th grade of a rural primary school in Sulawesi, Indonesia.
