Monday thought of the week: for themselves

A thought:

Put children on a football pitch and they will probably wait to play until someone explains the rules, or at least gives them a ball. But put the same children in a meadow, on a rocky shore or in a wood and they will very soon be inventing games for themselves.

– Paddy Woodworth, “Look, Ma – no laptop: kids click with nature,” The Irish Times (August 12, 2013)
