Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The challenge of educating a child is as important as it is complex. Today, there are innumerable types of stimuli and tools of all sorts to help children experiment and develop their cognitive skills. But what is the right process and which are the tools that most effectively favour that development? Which method of education is the most fruitful for a child? Maria Montessori formulated her method of education based on the significance of a child's education and its invaluable importance for society as the opportunity to reconstruct a better, more peaceful world. Children have boundless cognitive and emotional potential that can best be expressed in a relationship of trust, respect and unconditional love. According to Montessori, mindful adults who know their own limits and resources know how to interact with their children as patient observers, expert models and affectionate guides to create an environment where children can develop a sense of security, self-sufficiency and independence. This book is a practical guide inspired by the principles of the Montessori Method of education. Here, parents of children from 1 to 5 will find interesting food for thought and practical suggestions for indoor and outdoor activities that are meant to promote the development of their children's potential and encourage their independence and sense of security.
