No School For Babies

"Direct instruction really can limit young children's learning.  Teaching is a very effective way to get children to learn something specific - this tube squeaks, say, or a squish then a press then a pull causes the music to play.  But it also makes children less likely to discover unexpected information and to draw unexpected conclusions."
