Montessori Parenting: An Idea Whose Time Has Come
McFarland, Sonnie; McFarland, Jim
Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, v25 n1 p30-39 Spr 2013
Since Dr. Maria Montessori's discovery of the true nature of childhood over a century ago, children around the globe have benefited from Montessori education. However, even parents who have children enrolled in Montessori schools could derive further benefits through the implementation of Montessori principles and practices in the home. Helping parents create a child-friendly environment in the home is a beginning; however, educators can go much deeper. They can bring greater definition to best practices of Montessori parenting, so parents can better understand and appreciate "why" children blossom in Montessori classrooms and "how" they can implement Montessori principles and practices in the home.
