Who is the “educator”? How should he be prepared, and how should he interact with children and parents?..
If an educator favors some children more than others, should that person not be an educator?..
Previously we said that ideally, a group should consist of eight to ten children at most, with not one, but two or even three instructors working with them...
A child has a need to keep returning to the same place. He plays somewhere on neutral territory and then he wants to come back, to immerse himself in that sensation again. Adults also do that...
We said that the educator has to attune himself to the general interaction. And it’s unacceptable to prefer some children to others. But still, what if these feelings still arise?..
If an educator becomes so involved in the children’s environment, then he literally merges with it. Won’t it be a problem if he becomes the same as the kids, a degradation for the educator?..
Say we have gathered children of different ages in one place where they have to learn to find a “common denominator” in different situations. We gather an entire hall of children together, say, 500 or 1,000 children of different ages. How should we interact with them?..
Should the educator interact with the children’s parents?..
Say there are parents who take the course, study this method, and have a child who goes to this school. Can you depict how this family will interact with each other? A child comes home after spending most of his day in an environment of peers. What should his interaction be like with his parents and grandparents? Where is the child’s place? Where are the brothers and sisters? How do you envision it?..
