Makes Montessori accessible to every parent and child, regardless of time pressures and resources.

The Montessori method is gaining popularity, and for good reason—it is eminently child-centered and focused on laudable values such as curiosity, independence, and respect. Research shows that Montessori-schooled children are calm, confident, and intelligent, and grow up to become responsible, community-minded, emotionally intelligent adults. But Montessori has been criticized as elitist—Montessori nurseries and schools are oversubscribed and expensive, and books that show you how to apply the principles at home suggest an overhaul of your house as you set it up to suit your child’s play and learning needs. But the Montessori approach has the potential to bridge the world’s inequality gap, instilling values such as respect and fairness amongst peers. This book makes Montessori accessible to everyone. It outlines the key principles that underpin the approach succinctly and makes applying them immediate and practical for the average time-crunched working parent. Your child might not attend a Montessori school, but your family can still live by Montessori principles.

This book shows what you can do and say in the moment at the times of day you connect with your child. It also shows you that it is never too late to introduce Montessori methods to your child. You can apply the principles at any age and enjoy life-changing results. This is the only book to recognize that most parents do not have the resources to overhaul their lives to embrace a parenting philosophy, but instead need practical, immediate guidance that is effective in the moment. Everyone can create daily magical Montessori moments.
