Amazingly insightful . . . Nature as inner-guide.

by JRached on Mar 22, 2010

As a new mother I was starving for a sensible, low key approach to understand and aid my children in their journey of growth and development. This is by far, by miles, the most effective approach I have read. The child, from age 0 to 6, is essentially on Nature's "auto-pilot," requiring very little from parents except obvious basic needs and an environment that is well organized and filled with a few essential learning tools. In her own words, Dr. Maria Montessori describes how she comes to understand the child and how to let the child learn through its "inner guide" which directs the child's growth and development just as it did in utero. Amazingly insightful in it's simplicity and observations about the child.
