Freedom Within Limits In the Montessori Home Environment

Freedom, rules and discipline are the three most misunderstood concepts of the Montessori method. This misinterpretation presents the greatest barrier to parents embracing and implementing Montessori philosophy.

No child is the same. However, they all have a desire to feel secure and strive for independence. Montessori homeschooling is not fueled by a power-struggle, but by collaboration between a child and a parent via a display of mutual respect and trust.

Do I allow too much freedom?! Am I too strict?! What if my child doesn't like Montessori?! Do I "force" Montessori upon my child?!

In this presentation we will define the golden middle ground between freedom and limits. Innovative and practical examples will be provided to establish age-appropriate boundaries, to empower your child's sense of liberty and independence, as they progress on their journey of knowledge and exploration. We will discover how freedom within limits can help you and your child(ren) thrive within Montessori homeschooling environment.
