Tim Seldin, my favourite Montessori author, has published a new book. And I'm in it!
When I discovered Montessori 13 years ago, I first read Tim Seldin's book "How to raise an amazing child". It was instrumental into helping me to understand the Montessori principles and to prepare my home, before I went onto training as a Montessori teacher.
I was deeply honoured to be asked to contribute to the book "Montessori for every family".
I gave a real life testimonial related to conflict resolution.
This book is all about everything that I advocate with Montessori-family. You can do Montessori at home, no matter your budget, your schooling choice, the size of your home and so on!
This book is not about specific Montessori activities. It's more about Montessori as a family lifestyle. It's about how to parent your children with the Montessori principles.
It doesn't focus on one age-group but helps you over the years to stay true to the Montessori principles. You will check again and again this book as your children grow and your family life evolves with different situations. A must have in my opinion!
"This practical parenting guide makes Montessori accessible to every parent and child, regardless of time pressures and resources. Inside, you'll find:
- Outlines of the Montessori principles clearly and succinctly. For example respect, freedom, curiosity, creativity, responsibility, and independence
- Shows parents how to apply these principles to everyday life - with sections on breakfast time, school/nursery drop off, school/nursery pick up, playtime, meal times, homework time, bath time, and bedtime
- Demonstrates how to apply Montessori techniques to an older child new to Montessori and how to flex and build on the techniques as your child grows up
Montessori is a unique educational philosophy created by Maria Montessori that fosters the growth of the whole child. From enjoying nature together to free time and weekends, every aspect of family life is an opportunity for meaningful engagement with your child"
