I am looking for resources on how Montessori does disipline. We have started adding concepts to our home like doing for yourself and having responsibilities. I have one 2 and half year old. But sometimes he just refuses and I am not sure how to respond? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for your comment! Here are some brief suggestions: 1) Set up a home environment that allows your child to be independent in his or her activities. A lot of toddler-parent problems involve the child wanting to do something independently when it is not appropriate, so try to make sure that activities and material are child-sized and appropriate (put breakables away until your child is older, etc). Here is a link to an early post:http://montessorihouse.blogspot.com/2007/08/discipline-and-montessori-tiny-step.html2) Make sure there is plentiful equipment and lots of activity choices.3) Make sure your child has several active play opportunities, preferably outdoors, every day. Some more details here:http://montessorihouse.blogspot.com/2007/09/well-rounded-montessori-curriculum.htmlAnd general guidelines for your child's age group:http://montessorihouse.blogspot.com/2007/08/starting-at-infancy-helping-children-be.htmlHope this helps!
