The Key to Teaching by Carlynn McCormick  

Teachers want their students to enjoy learning, to be prepared for life, and to put their
education to good use.  Some teachers win; some loose. Unfortunately, when a teacher
losses, so do her students.  

Just how do you educate a child in subjects he needs for survival, without pushing those
subjects down his throat?  How do you turn a child's natural curiosity into a desire for
learning?  

If a teacher puts too much duress on Johnny by demanding he attain "vitally important"
abilities for his own good, Johnny may go along with it in robot-fashion, or he may go into
full-blown rebellion.  Everyone loses when teachers give a mountain of homework and
beat students over the head with how "important it all is".  Students usually end up hating
school.

But a teacher who lets Johnny do whatever he wants to do and puts no emphasis on the
ability to get things done may face an even worse fate:  she gets a student who does
nothing.  Everyone loses when teachers fail to use good control and students feel they
have accomplished zilch.  

So how do you win?  How do you get a student to do what you want him to do, without
breaking his spirit or instigating mutiny?    

The greater this challenge is to a parent or teacher, the more that individual may be
amazed by the simplicity of the answer.   

The answer is to give the child a goal!    

Think about it.  See how it fits your own experiences and life situations.  Triumph is
having and setting goals and attaining them, then creating and setting new goals and
attaining them as well.  It is no different for a child.   

In giving practical advice to parents, educator and humanitarian, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard,
said, "Perhaps the single most important point .. . . is to make clear to the parents the
importance of giving goals to a child, and that the most important goal is that of growing
up to be an adult.."   

Here again, this can be seen by remembering your own childhood desires to be an adult
so you could drive a car or stay up as late as you wanted.    

Success then comes from keeping a balance between making a safe space for a child
where he can assert his independence and self-determinism, and guiding that child
toward goals that will make his life a game worth playing.
