book cover

A Good Mother Is Better Than a Good Teacher

(Difficulty: Intermediate and advanced level)

不是穿了西服就变成绅士,不是生了孩子就会做父母。做父母需要学习,需要学会如何爱。学会爱是个很大的命题,需要慢慢去学,最简单的第一步就是不再打骂孩子,不做穿西装的野人。

——尹建莉《好妈妈胜过好老师》

善良的人,才是和世界摩擦最小的人,才容易成为幸福的人;在心态上不苛刻的孩子,长大后他的处事态度会更自如,人际关系会更和谐,会获得更多的帮助和机会。

——尹建莉《好妈妈胜过好老师》

蒙台梭利博士说:“每种性格缺陷都是由儿童早期经受的某种错误对待造成的。” 打骂的方式绝不可能让孩子健康成长,只能让他的心理扭曲。一个心理残疾的人,远比一个生理残疾的人更糟糕,而且多一层可怕。

阅读的功能在于“熏陶”而不是“搬运”。眼前可能看不出什么,但只要他读得足够多,丰厚底蕴迟早会在孩子身上显现出来。苏霍姆林斯基发现,“人所掌握的知识的数量也取决于脑力劳动的情感色彩:如果跟书籍的精神交往对人是一种乐趣,并不以识记为目的,那么大量事物、真理和规律性就很容易进入他的意识”。

The Best Education Is the Simplest

如果你希望自己的孩子在未来表现出一匹骏马的飘逸,就不要从小教唆他以一只刺猬的姿态活着。

——尹建莉《最美的教育最简单》

有什么比信任更能表达对一个人的尊重呢?

Popular parenting author Yin Jianli reflects on her success

"Five years ago, Yin Jianli released her first book, A Good Mother Is Better Than a Good Teacher, and won over the hearts of millions of Chinese middle-class parents with the message that a child's character mattered more than academic scores. The 50-year-old former Beijing public-school teacher encourages children to challenge authority and urges parents to give them more freedom and trust. Yin's second book, The Best Education Is the Simplest, was published last month. Wearing a dark and understated elegant dress, Yin spoke to the Sunday Morning Post in a quiet corner of a Beijing coffee house, where she shared her vision for education."
