Emmi Pikler

It is no secret I am a fan of Emmi Pikler. The picture below landed on my inbox today and it comes from “Red Pikler La Plata” (Pikler Network La Plata, Argentina). A little homage to one of the greatest.

The translation of the text is below the picture. Enjoy!

“The image of the world we present to a newborn is completely different when the hands that touch him are filled with patience, tranquillity, safety and purpose. How different the world can be presented to a newborn if the hands that touch him are impatient, careless, rushed, restless. In the beginning, the hands to a newborn are everything: the human nature, the world”.
