Kids are great, even when we have those days where we feel like selling them to the circus, once they are in bed, all snuggled up and looking cute we know we wouldn’t have it any other way.

You know what is hard with kids though, knowing what the need and when they need it.

Plus all those things that should have been included in their persoanl “How to raise this child manual” that we never actual got!

That’s why raising a family and running a business is somewhat like running through an assault course without knowing which obstacle is next or whether the finish line actually exsists.

And then, of course, no thanks to social media we get a dumper truck worth of mama guilt to wade through because our house isn’t Pinterest worthy or our two year old isn’t trilingual, grade 5 on the violin and already completed his high school diploma in maths!

It’s exhausting right?

When my boy was born, I discovered Montessori and what I loved most was the idea of “follow the child”. No pushing, no forcing, just gentle parenting following the child’s needs and interests. the more i read about it, the more I fell in love.

That much so, that I trained as a Montessori teacher, blogged daily about what we were up to and ended up writing a book about using items you have at home to create Montessori style activites.

Then a few years later when I started helping moms to get organized at home, I discovered that introducing some of the Montessori principles really helped their kids to become more independent (freeing up more time for mom – double win!) so I started adding it to my programs.

Slowing down and taking time to connect with your kids can make a huge difference, it cuts down on tantrums, the fights and bickering. Creates stronger bonds and relationships and that mama guilt that has your up at night, poof gone!

I want to help you get there with your family, if you are interested in learning more about Montessori without having to take a teaching certificate then myself and Deb Chitwood have Montessori Demystified, a free training to get you started.
