“We cannot uncover every thought that influences a child. Nor is it necessary. The connections between one event and another will be made in the process of living, at home and at school. In both places the adult who listens and responds to what the children say can be an important guide. But the children themselves will unlock – or lock, if need be – the doors to their secrets as they play out their scenes; and the images in their minds will be adapted to the people and events around them.” ~ Vivian Gussin Paley
