The Montessori Toddler: A Parent's Guide to Raising a Curious and Responsible Human Being (MP3 CD)
It's time to change the way we see toddlers. Using the pedagogical principles developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, Simone Davies shows how to turn life with a "terrible two" into a mutually rich and rewarding time of curiosity, learning, respect, and discovery. With hundreds of practical ideas for every aspect of living with a toddler, you'll learn how to feed your child's natural curiosity while also cultivating daily routines, like brushing teeth, toilet-training, dealing with siblings, and losing the pacifier. Plus, you'll learn how to - Stay composed when your toddler is not, and set limits with love and respect--without resorting to bribes or punishment - Set up your home and get rid of the chaos - Create Montessori activities that are just right for your one-to-three-year-old - Raise an inquisitive learner who loves exploring the world around them - See the world through your toddler's eyes and be surprised and delighted by their perspective - Be your child's guide--and truly celebrate every stage.
