Reviews of : The Montessori Toddler by Simone Davies PDF Book
Inside this Book – Toddlers are misunderstood humans. People see toddlers as difficult. There are not many good examples of how to be with toddlers in a loving, patient, supportive way. They start to walk, they start to explore, they’re only just learning to communicate with words, and they don’t have a whole lot of impulse control. They can’t sit still easily in cafes and restaurants, they see an open space and start running, they have tantrums (often at the most inconvenient times and in the most inconvenient places), and they touch anything that looks interesting. They get called “the terrible twos.” They do not listen. They keep throwing everything. They won’t sleep/eat/use the toilet. When my children were small, it didn’t feel right to get their cooperation with threats, bribes, and time-outs, yet it was difficult to find alternatives. I heard a radio interview when my first child was very young. The guest talked about the negative effects of using time-outs as a punishment—it alienated the child when they needed support and made the child upset with the adult rather than helping the child make amends. I listened attentively for the guest to tell parents what to do instead, but the radio interview ended there. It’s been my mission since then to find my own answers.
Inside this book –The Montessori Toddler PDF Book by Simone Davies – Dr. Maria Montessori was one of the first female doctors in Italy in the late 1800s. She worked at a clinic in Rome, tending to the poor and their children. She not only treated her patients’ health but also provided them with care and clothing. In an asylum in Rome, she observed children with emotional and mental disabilities who were sensorially deprived in their environment. In one case, she noticed that they were picking up crumbs—not to eat, but to stimulate their sense of touch. She proposed that education, not medicine, was the answer for these children. Dr. Montessori did not begin with any preconceived methodology. Instead, she applied the same objective and scientific observation practices from her medical training to see what engaged the children, to understand how they learned and how she could facilitate their learning. She immersed herself in educational philosophy, psychology, and anthropology, experimenting with and refining educational materials for these children. Eventually, the majority of the children passed state examinations with marks higher than children without disabilities. Dr. Montessori was hailed as a miracle worker. She was soon able to test her ideas in the Italian educational system when she was invited to set up a place in the slums of Rome to care for young children while their parents worked. This was the first Casa dei Bambini—House of Children—which opened in January 1907. It was not long before her work drew interest and spread internationally. Montessori schools and training programs are now on every continent except Antarctica. In the United States alone, there are more than 4,500 Montessori schools, and there are 20,000 worldwide. Where I live in Amsterdam, there are more than 20 Montessori schools for a population of around 800,000 catering to children from infancy to 18 years old. Larry Page and Sergey Brin (founders of Google), Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon), Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (former first lady), and Gabriel García Márquez (Nobel Prize–winning novelist) all attended Montessori schools.
