Child development involves personal evolution and growth. Forcing children to
change their natural symbols before their time is like forcing a baby to walk
or be potty trained before they are ready. Talk about it and show
examples....yes. But forcing results in frustration and I want my kids to
enjoy art at such tender ages. If they/some "get it", great. If they don't,
I say they aren't ready yet. I keep on talking about it, and sooner or later,
they do. Melissa Smith
