The love and care in some cases can become the best means of influencing children.
You need and the quality rigor. But it must be appropriate. The teacher learners need to see not only a mentor, but also an authority figure. And if the teacher will be too soft and allow the children to go beyond what is permitted, the students would understand that the opinion of a teacher means nothing, and its effect is negligible.
It is believed that young teachers quickly find common language with children, but in some cases age doesn't matter.
