Parent's Guide to Raising a Curious and Responsible Human Being

Announcing that rare parenting book that will not only help you become a more effective parent but actually change how you see your children.

Written by Montessori educator Simone Davies, this book shows you how to bring the educational values of a Montessori classroom into your home-while turning the whole idea of the "terrible twos" on its head.

Here is how to set up Montessori-friendly spaces in your home. Principles for fostering curiosity in your child-and in yourself. Specific Montessori skills-the winter coat flip; getting your toddler to pour his or her own water and clean up whatever spills might occur. And it goes much deeper, showing how a parent can really be present, be the child's guide, and handle tantrums and problematic behavior without resorting to bribes, threats, or punishment and truly celebrate every stage.

It's also that rare parenting book that's beautiful to look at, with a bright, airy design and simple color illustrations and photographs.

 

Industry Reviews

"This graceful guide to parenting toddlers within the Montessori educational philosophy teaches adults with the same spirit of gentleness, presenting a coherent, attractive system while simultaneously breaking its instruction down into small, understandable chunks that seem reasonable to master." --Publishers Weekly

"With every page chock-full of plans for how to make one's home a haven for a youngster's intellectual and emotional growth, this valuable manual fills a gap on a topic not as frequently addressed in the literature on toddler development." --Library Journal

" This is a down-to-earth, accessible book that makes Montessori at home doable. She provides clear ideas for discipline and parenting, and it's written in a friendly, parent-to-parent way." --Book Riot
