"Discipline is, therefore, primarily a learning experience." (Dr. Maria Montessori)
In this final edition of the Montessori at Home Guide series, Rachel Peachey addresses practical life skills that seem often forgotten: social skills and discipline. Learn how to gently guide your two- to six-year-old to develop basic social skills including "introducing themselves" and "how to interrupt politely" to more complex skills like "recognizing emotions in others".
This book also discusses gentle parenting approaches to discipline, how to handle conflict, and many more parenting techniques inspired by Maria Montessori. Rachel's informative yet simple approach to these subjects is easy to understand and ready for the busy parent who may not have time to dive deeper into the Montessori philosophy.
Though a short guide, it's packed with insight, leading to many "a-ha!" moments that will be priceless for the early education of your little one.
"We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit." (Dr. Maria Montessori)
