Author of The No-Cry Discipline Solution
The Montessori method emphasizes self-directed learning, practical life skills, and observation leading to adaptation. Environment also plays an important role, with natural materials promoting learning and a calm mind. But even parents who do not have kids enrolled in a Montessori school can learn much from this book. Simple activities such as creating a treasure basket of objects that appeal to different senses will promote exploration and interaction. Others suggest ways to incorporate math and reading into everyday life. Further strategies can help with toilet training, cleaning up, sharing and tantrums.
With inspiring thoughts and practical tips, Seldin shares the Montessori vision of raising a thoughtful child who will connect with others and do good in the world. He offers a list of manners and how to teach them: through careful language and a positive approach. Throughout, the Montessori parent learns to return to the basics and raise an amazing child with patience, understanding, praise and respect.
