As educators, we give the child the freedom to repeat an activity until it reaches a point of exactness. In a young child we first notice self-perfection through the act of self-control of sensory and motor by controlling urges and the will of the body to do what one wants it to do.
Once we become aware of these tendencies, we can encourage children to follow their own, inner motivations.
Children who have been raised in environments prepared according to the human tendencies, tend to be secure, healthy, and happy children who pursue activities and life with little hesitation and a lot of energy.
Order helps us see relationships and how life fits together.
