One of the troubles with teachers in the church and in public education is that they are adults. They do not think and imagine like children, but they take the results of adult thought and expect children to handle them. At the same time, their own education has led them to be suspicious of feelings and imagination, so that they ignore the feelings of children or try to get them to control their feelings and imagination with rational thought. Both of these tendencies have been challenged by recent studies.
