This is from Pockets of the Future. I love how enthusiastic the kids are, lol.
They also had this great video, which I will pass on as well. It's a little Chinese girl washing her shirt. This is a perfect example of Continuum Concept parenting - the mom says nothing to the little girl, who simply mimics her. But, the daughter also doesn't have to ask for soap, the mom just provides what is needed. This is what not being child-centered is all about. Some might say, "Look at the terrible poverty!" But as you can see from the video above, there is nothing wrong with washing your clothes by hand (although I am extremely grateful for my washing machine, lol).
