Don’t use children as pegs for your theories

“Perhaps a prominent note throughout the Conference was: Be practical. There were many theories, old and new, but all were to some extent perfectly practical. “Do not theorise, but do.  Try everything- solitude, browsing in books, country life, many interests, above all, habits of mind. If one thing does not succeed try another. Study your children, not as pegs for your theories, but as practical teachers, training you. Have a method and aim at continuity- aim high and remember the best work is unseen.” E.C. Allen L’Umile Pianta, 1900, July, p 1-42
