Intrinsic Motivation - Learning comes from within
Studies have shown that people who demonstrate authentic and self-initiated motivation have better performance, persistence, and creativity . The most natural way of learning is produced through an interest or passion, not from outside forces or authority.
Children learn best when they see an application to the information, a satisfaction of completing something, and pleasure in the process. Children who have a choice in the method and matter of their education retain more information and have higher levels of performance, persistence, and creativity.
A learner is not someone who has amassed knowledge and high grades, but someone who has mastered internalized motivation; who finds joy learning in groups and alone.
Left to their curiosities, children will discover the world and ask questions that will allow them to understand and thrive. The inner drive to learn is set free when all outside forces are removed.
Healing Our Children describes Authority
"Real authority therefore comes from within us, because real authority comes about through honesty, truth and love all endowed by the Creator."
This real authority is only gained through inner reflection and being true to your own path. Schools do not allow children to nurture their inner authority. Instead they control everything that is taught to and consumed by the learner.
The only way to advance authentic, self-motivated learning is by setting children free from institutions, curriculum, lessons, and teachers; and allowing them to realize their own potential for life.

I've read over 12 books on this topic and this is my number one book to the extent that it's become my bible, in that I've read it over 5 times and my husband has also read it. Ramiel's book really helped us along this journey and I can't recommend this book enough. It's truly is life changing!! If you are going to buy a diet / nutritional / lifestyle book for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy or for children, this book would be my number one choice.
