Value bombs and tweetables:
- I could actually stand back and let them decide what the rules were - they would change constantly! - and I would be able to watch their little frustrations kind of fizzle away as they practiced this themselves - Nicole
- So what happens is when children feel like they don't win enough, they'll change the rules so that they can win – Sophia
- We have been resisting flexing the rules as we don't want to let them win all the time, not realizing that in play this isn't the time for the lesson, “you can't win them all!” - Nicole
- Sometimes I think that we worry or there's a fear that if we always let them win, or if we go soft on them, that there'll be a sore loser. But the opposite is often true. Children who never have the chance to experience feeling of winning may never feel good or capable within games - Sophia
- Boundaries sound like very short statements that are not there to be argued with. So here are some examples. Shoes are for the floor, not the sofa. Food is for eating, not for throwing, water is for the bath, not for the floor – Sophia
- Without limits, there is no safety. So children actually really need limits and boundaries to feel safe. And sometimes we might feel mean putting boundaries in place, but children really need them, and they thrive under them. And when they don't have clear boundaries, they can feel a bit wobbly and a bit unsafe - Sophia
