Not learning environment

in MANTAN (churning sessions with parents, some call it PTA) at Aarohi we pondered on what is NOT LEARNING ENVIRONMENT.
While each family and each learning space will have their own opinion about each point on what makes it learning or not learning. Isn’t it a choice of the individual to understand and decide what is learning or not learning rather making it a prescription of ‘the learning environment’.
One says ‘teach the child’, another says ‘let the child decide’. How about looking at both perspectives and exploring self-right and wrong? How about experimenting with both and letting the child explore and understand self? How about not following what all you read till now and starting again with the question ‘what is the learning environment for you?’.
