In fact, during my first year as a preschool teacher in a Montessori school, my limited ideas of the kids’ cleaning capabilities were completely blown out of the water!
If you can be consistent by making sure that every member of the family is living up to the requirements, it’ll be much easier for kids to comply with the standards. On the other hand, if you bend the rules (especially at the beginning of a new regimen), get ready for everyone in your family to start testing to see where the boundaries are.
So, that day, off we went to Target–and not only did we buy little white Fruit of the Looms just like Daddy’s, but also several packages of really, really cool Spider Man and Cars underwear. No three-year-old in his right mind would want to make a mess out of those. He put them on when we got home. We reminded him a few times to go to the bathroom, and that was that. I think he had all of one accident in the next couple of days. From then on, he was a Big Boy. Diapers were a thing of the past.
We played some games, acting out stories. It was pleasant and diverting but I didn’t feel I was accomplishing anything. Then one day Rachel pushed Joshua and Joshua started to look as if he were about to cry.
TAKE YOGA CLASSES WITH YOUR CHILD. Our children are growing up in a fast-paced and stressful world. Introducing them to Yoga can have profound effects, including physical flexibility and body awareness, the development of a sense of calmness and an increase in their ability to concentrate. Some have even said that it connects a child more deeply with their inner self and brings about a relationship between them and the natural world that surrounds them.
However, to support myself during my latter university years, I worked as a Drama teacher in a Preschool Near Me. I knew little of Montessori and less of tiny little rich children (for this was in Washington, D.C., and senator’s kids went to this school), but drama I knew. I taught two classes: one of five-year-olds and one of four-year-olds.
SS: You mentioned keeping it simple and that’s important. 2Pac was not this great lyricist, he kept it simple and is without a doubt the most loved MC of all time.
Another thing which amuses them is the birdhouses. There are numerous bird house plans too. One can just pick and choose and implement one of them. These are far less expensive than the playhouses. Even bird houses can be decorated and it just gives little children a pleasure and satisfaction to see birds living in the birdhouses made by them.
