6. Don't worry about how fast or slow they are learning. Don't test
them to see if they are "up to speed." If you nurture them in a
supportive environment, your children will grow and learn at their
own speed, and you can trust in that process. They are like seeds
planted in good earth, watered and fertilized. You don't keep digging
up the seeds to see if the roots are growing�that disrupts the
natural growing process. Trust your children in the same way you
trust seeds to sprout and seedlings to develop into strong and
healthy plants.
