Do you want to be a better parent?
Do you want to raise your child like a successful people?
Whether you are a parent, caretaker or educator, you are concerned for the well-being of the young children in your care. The exciting and fascinating time from ages 2-6 marks an amazing period of changes and milestones reached. Children change from toddling, unstable, barely communicative little ones into running, jumping, climbing and expressive beings.
Through this book, Esther takes you through the significance of Montessori and explains in detail the uniqueness in the Montessori technique and why it may best compliment to the uniqueness of your own child.
The world of Montessori education is one in which the child leads their own experience, gently guided by an observant parent or educator. The Montessori method, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1907, has become an effective and cherished lifestyle, and method of education, for children of all ages across the globe. Dr. Montessori recognized the natural rhythms in the learning habits of young children while she was focusing on how educational techniques could be improved for children with educational and developmental disabilities.
As you can see, so much of Montessori is about respect for the mind and spirit of the child. As a parent, no one is more capable of loving, respecting and honoring your child than you are. You are the perfect Montessori educator for your child.
This book provides some direction for those wishing to teach the important skills of self-care. Each of the tasks outlined here increase the child’s sense of independence, and through this, her confidence. Though activities focusing on learning to dress, feed and manage hygiene may seem mundane to us adults, for children, mastering these skills is a ticket to freedom. Imagine what it would be like to need to ask for help every time you wanted a glass of water or to put your shoes on. You would be dependent on another person’s availability constantly!
Remember that each child is unique. While some two-year-olds are quick to learn to use the potty, other children aren’t ready until they are nearly three. Some children may prefer food related activities to dressing activities. Notice the areas where your child seems most engaged and focus on these topics first.
