Film is a great way to teach this stuff. (if you are a filmmaker who will work cheap, I have a project for you). Anyway, here are two favorite moments of mine in the same clip (about Loczy, Pikler’s Hungarian orphanage):
First, at 3:40 Right after the narrator says “The Child is not a marionette” – you can see Emi Pikler’s use of the baby’s POV. This film shows what we’re always trying to tell people – imagine the baby’s experience, and her pace.
Then, if you are in a hurry, make yourself stop. Watch the 30 seconds or minute or so leading up to 6:35. See that? The awesome experience of observing the child’s discovery is there for any adult to see – when we follow Magda Gerber’s rule of “Do Less, See More, Enjoy Most.”
