You may say, “Given the freedom to children, what if they make wrong decisions? If I was given that freedom in school, I would have just messed around". Maybe you are right. Maybe you would have. But that's not because of who you are. That's because of the environment you are in and how you are treated. Children who are trusted will become trustworthy. The children who are respected will learn proper self-respect. Children who are cared for will learn to care for others. Practising democratic education isn't about making them stamp their feet and make demands. It is about supporting them and facilitating their development so that they can be motivated to fulfil their potential.
