    We must employ conditioning. There's no doubt of that. They have to learn that there are certain ways they can move and certain ways they can't. This is conditioning. For the child's real opening they must have that world of play created by the adult establishing that safe secure space with them. If we mistake these two, if we get them mixed up and we're not aware of the child's need for the play exercise, as well as the conditioning. If we try to make the play the conditioning, or if we try to condition play, than we're going to mess up the whole neural development itself. We've taken a later adult concept and tried to inflict it on the child or impose it on the child out of appropriate age consideration, which then becomes conditioning and blocks the natural unfolding and absorption of their universe as designed by nature during that period.
