The adult who is inexperienced in the art of observation may, even with the best intentions, react to a child's behavior in a way that hinders instead of helping the child's development. Kripalani outlines the need for training and practice in observation in order to "understand the needs of the children understand how to remove obstacles." To this end, she outlines a technique for practicing observation. She also lists the different aspects to be observed in the classroom and discusses points of awareness in the observation of each.
