A Better Way
Love is a better teacher than duty. (Albert Einstein, renowned scientist)
You wouldn’t think it would take a great mind, like Einstein’s, to discover this truth. Most parents and teachers know it, too. The truth became clear, probably, after trying it the other way. Encouraging students because we care has much better success than when we coerce learners to do their homework or complete a difficult assignment just because they have to.
O Lord . . . teach me your decrees . . . I am your servant . . . teach me your decrees . . . Look upon me with love; teach me your decrees. (Psalm 119:64, 124, 135)
