Summary

The creative spirit begins its growth with a child's attempts to understand the world about him and to express his feelings. Preservation and nurture of the creative spirit can help a child grow into a creative, constructive adult. The concepts of child development and child rearing implicit in the white house conference on children and youth are applied. If children find their world trustworthy, and adults interesting and understanding, they will share the treasures of their minds and hearts, their stories, their poetry, their love of rhythm and music, and their search for rich experiences. They love language, they enjoy the taste and color and flavor of their experiences in a way that is creative in the best sense of the word. By "a creative life for children" is meant a creative life for all children, not only specially talented or specially bright children. Learning is creative, and the role of parents in their children's growing understanding of the world is discussed. Creativity takes many different forms. The child's life widens when he enters school, and even more when he reaches adolescence. Young people whose early childhood did not provide a ground plan for their relationship to themselves, to the world, to other people are given a new chance to find themselves in adolescence.
