Editorial: On Behalf of Children. Gentling versus Breaking: Understanding the Languages of Learners.
Jalongo, Mary Renck
Early Childhood Education Journal, v26 n2 p65-66 Win 1998
Using a story of horse training versus horse breaking and referring to Monty Roberts (the "horse whisperer"), this editorial draws three lessons: (1) resist the temptation to act out of fear and mistrust toward children; (2) focus on relationship building, allying with children rather than controlling them; and (3) recognize and admire those who are great communicators.
