Overview

It's always hard for parents to send their children to school for the first time. School teaches children how to work with others, socialize, and relate to external sources of authority. However, school structures weren't all made to serve kids. In certain aspects, they were built to serve the needs of adults. Erika Christakis's The Importance of Being Little: What Young Children Really Need from Grownups teaches you about the ways in which the current school system serves children - but also how it often fails them.

"Indeed, playing games and laughing together are far more educational than drilling kids on their ABCs on the way to daycare."
