Developing Independence

“When children grow and develop in a positive, supportive environment, they are more enthusiastic, more willing to accept challenges, more persistent in the face of difficulties, and better able to set and achieve their goals.  Support and guidance allow them to develop emotionally and socially in healthy ways.  If given opportunities to make choices and decisions, and if learning to work in a self-directed way, they will learn to become independent.”

–  Marilyn Chapman, 2000
