Waldorf education benefits

Waldorf Education was developed by Rudolph Steiner based on a very deep understanding of how the inner life of a child unfolds at each age. A Waldorf curriculum is delivered to the child in a way that speaks to what is unfolding in the child's life at any given time. For example, in Second Grade, this is a time where they are starting to realize they everybody has foibles. They realize that everybody has parts of them that aren't so good, so they study Aesop's Fables, and thing like that. In Seventh Grade, when their bodies are undergoing tremendous change and bones are hardening, they are studying geology. It's based on this deep, deep understanding of what's going on in her life. Waldorf curriculum reaches out to the child, and the child reaches back. I never once had to tell my children to do their homework. People don't believe that, but it's true.
