I hope that by describing a few of the key elements of Montessori and including some resources below, I can provide parents new to Montessori a little more insight. It’s written in a very accessible way and mirrors everything I believe as an Early Years Consultant and on a personal level as a gentle parent.

Look for toddler-friendly instruments your child can hit or shake, like a drum, xylophone, bells, or maracas. They are free to move about and choose their activities, allowing children to learn at their own pace and develop their interests. Puzzles (and similar toys, like knobbed cylinders and shape sorters) are phenomenal learning materials. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this all go down one evening as I documented it in my Stories. In this learning environment, children work independently, observe others, explore freely, and express their curiosity and creativity.

The layout of the chapter is beautiful to look at and makes you feel instantly calm with its neutral tones, subtle illustrations and small segments with pauses and breaks.

As a parent I find key phrases help me to stay calm in the moment and the consistency helps my toddler to respond.Davies offers useful phrases to adopt ‘I cant let you draw on that chair but I could find you some paper to draw on’. Most parenting books don't deserve 5 stars because I disagree with them in enough parts, or they're weak in vital areas.

A Montessori environment for very young children gives your infant or toddler the freedom to safely explore and learn through discovery. Here’s an easy art activity you can do in a pinch: Set out a piece of paper and a few strips of dot stickers.

I felt enormous empathy for them, but wasn’t sure what the alternative was to threatening, bribing or putting them into time out.Knowing how to process your own frustrations and emotions is a key component in this type of parenting. I think the key takeaways for me personally are centered on respecting a toddler as already striving for independence, finding ways to enable problem solving even while so young (rather then jumping in to solve the problem), organizing more practical self-serve access around the house, and to establish more structure in our household ground rules and consistency. This graceful guide to parenting toddlers within the Montessori educational philosophy teaches adults with the same spirit of gentleness, presenting a coherent, attractive system while simultaneously breaking its instruction down into small, understandable chunks that seem reasonable to master.

So, try counting while you play movement games: Can you clap 10 times, jump up and down 5 times, and touch your toes 3 times? If you don't know some objects by name - look it up and make sure they see how you use the dictionary. Eventually, he grabbed one and got to work tinkering, totally focused, and not overwhelmed with decision fatigue or overstimulation of “what should I play with next? Reread: Just read this now that Lucia is indeed a toddler, and I appreciate the list of experiences in the back as a "quick tips.Straw Posting: Cut several small holes into the lid of an empty container and encourage your child to drop halved straws through the holes. My toddler thrives with this set up at home and I found the suggestions of chores to involve her in and ways of setting things up really useful. In this book, I share all the answers to the questions I get asked by families coming to my classes – how to get their child to cooperate, how to set up their home and activities in a Montessori way, and – most of all – how to enjoy parenting their toddlers. When your child has mastered this task, you can add a few additional steps to finish the job: Spray the table with water and then use a cloth to dry the table.
