Participation in every day life develops a feeling of worthiness in a person called upon to share it in an  active way. Children become not only users of the world in which they live, but also producers.

The basic experience of being able to change and transform the environment gives the person a feeling of personal worth that remains forever. “I am worth something” is added to the previous feeling that is “I can do things”, and then becomes “I can do important things”.
