"Grown-up people do ..." Quote of Penelope Leach

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Grown-up people do very little and say a great deal.... Toddlers say very little and do a great deal.... With a toddler you cannot explain, you have to show. You cannot send, you have to take. You cannot control with words, you have to use your body.
