Eating Out With Your Children

Our family enjoys eating out and trying different cuisines; it’s one of our favorite things to do. When my kids learned how to read, they were very excited every time we ate out and will ask for a menu for themselves. To be able to read the menu’s options for themselves gave them a triumphant…… Continue reading Eating Out With Your Children

A Morning Well Spent

What is a typical morning in a Montessori Infant or Toddler Class? Are you ready? It starts with a warm morning greeting and I make sure I make eye contact with children. A child usually darts off to the room and looks at what activities they would like to do. Some may take awhile to…… Continue reading A Morning Well Spent

Montessori Way : Toys That Matter

I came across an article written by Joshua Becker (becoming minimalist) on why fewer toys will benefit children. He has 12 great points and I chose my top 3 and share my perspective using Montessori Approach. A Montessori environment for babies and toddlers has selected materials neatly organized on the shelves. Just the right activities…… Continue reading Montessori Way : Toys That Matter

Raising Adolescents – A Reflection

Lately, I am the least favorite person of my kids. Not very popular right now, lots of “Oh come on Mom!” “But why can’t I have it now?” “Not Fair!” You see, I try not to promise anything to my kids because it can be very frustrating for them and I lose my credibility if…… Continue reading Raising Adolescents – A Reflection

These children are happy to help the Educators in the classroom no matter what it is, sweeping…… Continue reading What is a Montessori Parent-Child Program?

Raising Children Who Reads In The World Of Ipads.

Everywhere I go, I always get comments when they see my children clutching a handful of books “Oh wow, your children love books!” I respond with a smile and with a sense of pride. Well, like with other parenting skills it takes time, practice and consistency to get the results you want! I remember when…… Continue reading Raising Children Who Reads In The World Of Ipads.

I Am Grateful For

While I was browsing my Facebook Feed, I saw a post about a gratitude jar. Children and their parents write on a piece of paper what they are grateful for every day, and there was a version of happiness jar. Either way, both ideas were fantastic! One evening whilst having dinner with my family, I…… Continue reading I Am Grateful For

I am passionate about discussing Montessori education and why it will revolutionize the education system. Its been around a century, and the society is finally understanding the benefits of it.
