Montessori Parenting
Toddlers are misunderstood human beings. Known for their alarming tantrums and insatiable curiosity, raising them can bring as many joys (“I did it all by myself!”) as it does frustrations (“Is that chocolate in the carpet?”). The Montessori method offers a holistic approach for parents looking for a more peaceful way to be with toddlers — to encourage their child’s natural independence and curiosity while bringing some calm back into the home. In the US alone, there are more than 4,500 Montessori schools catering to children from infancy to 18 years old. Simone Davies helps parents incorporate Montessori into their home and daily life through her popular blog and online courses available on The Montessori Notebook. She and her work have been featured in the NYTimes.
