Working Assumptions about Children

Until proven otherwise, we believe all children want to:

* have their parents be proud of them.

* please their parents and other adults.

* be accepted as part of a social group.

* be active and involved in activities with others.

* learn new things.

* be surprised and surprise others.

* voice their opinions and choices.

* make choices when given an opportunity.
