The author argues that when we think about children developing their skills and competencies in social behaviour, we need to seriously reflect on where we position ourselves as adults - as controllers of child social behaviour or as teachers of child social behaviour. The author quotes some ideas of William Glasser and Maria Montessori, among others.
