Book: The child in the family – Maria Montessori
In the child in the family soft cover book from the Montessori series, volume 8, published by Montessori-Pierson Publishing Company, Dr. Maria Montessori discusses some of her basic principles of education and shows why it is so important for adults to ‘follow attentively all the spiritual expressions of a child’.
She stresses the importance of adult respect and support for ‘all reasonable forms of activity in which the child engages’ and emphasises the value of understanding rather than interfering with such activity. Adults should help children to become independent while at the same time fully appreciating how sensitive children are to external influences.
