Educating a child is challenging and complex. What are the best methods and most appropriate materials for promoting a young person's development? Maria Montessori believed education was invaluable in constructing a better, more peaceful society, so she created a pedagogy designed to open up children's unlimited cognitive and emotional potential and forge a relationship of trust, respect, and unconditional love. This practical guide makes Montessori's methods accessible to anyone, providing concrete examples, suggestions, and strategies to use at home as part of a daily routine. It gives parents the resources to recognize windows of opportunity for learning and foster good behavior during shared play, choose recreational activities, and prepare an environment that suits their children's needs.
