Progress for every child is possible when the Carden Approach is executed by a well-trained teacher. Not only is academic achievement assured, but many undesired character traits are gradually eliminated because of the close eye-level communication each teacher has with the child during the small group sessions. The overly aggressive child is trained to hold his tongue and acquire some judgment in its use. The timid, shy child is given an opportunity to express himself. Every child is made to feel that the teacher cares about his progress. The relaxed atmosphere makes possible the most joyous teaching situation possible. True success is realized when parents report to the school that home life has been greatly improved because of Carden’s influence on the child’s behavior.
