Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom

“Young children may not notice when they are being too noisy for other people because they have a hard time seeing things from someone else’s point of view. One of the things we can do is to help children find acceptable ways to be noisy  … and to help them see that they can begin to control noise levels and themselves in small ways.” — Fred Rogers
