Summary

"Discipline is, therefore, primarily a learning experience." (Dr. Maria Montessori)

In this final edition of the Montessori at Home Guide series, Rachel Peachey addresses practical life skills that seem often forgotten: social skills and discipline. Learn how to gently guide your two- to six-year-old to develop basic social skills including "introducing themselves" and "how to interrupt politely" to more complex skills like "recognizing emotions in others".

This book also discusses gentle parenting approaches to discipline, how to handle conflict, and many more parenting techniques inspired by Maria Montessori. Rachel's informative yet simple approach to these subjects is easy to understand and ready for the busy parent who may not have time to dive deeper into the Montessori philosophy.

Though a short guide, it's packed with insight, leading to many "a-ha!" moments that will be priceless for the early education of your little one.

"We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit." (Dr. Maria Montessori)

Good overview of gentle parenting

Not sure how strictly 'Montessori' it is but it's a good short overview of the new buzz parenting ideas. It loses stars however with it's mention of Hand in Hand parenting.

Practical, but not an easy listen

This book included several practical examples of how to model / teach children within the Montessori framework. As the mother of a two-year-old, some of the examples were a bit advanced, but will be useful as we move forward. For me, the best chapter was toward the end when it spoke of difficult topics. That is information I had not encountered before.

The narration was tough. I had to increase the speed to 1.2x because I found it so slow. And that made it sound kind of robotic, but I think it was the best alternative.
