Today’s parents are inundated with thousands of resources on Potty Training. This plethora of resources, representing so many people with differing back grounds and experiences, offers contradictory advice and too often leads parents to find themselves, delaying this developmental milestone. Add to the confusion over what or who’s advice to follow, the frustration so frequently experienced by parents who” just aren’t ready yet,” and the task of “training” can be transformed from a joyful journey to a tedious and challenging experience.
The Montessori way to Toileting is a liberating approach, freeing both parent and child from pressure facilitated through the parent’s efforts, and allowing the process to be a natural one which grows out of the child’s interest, and a desire for independence and self-respect. We are thus continuing to line up the prepared environment with the developmental needs of the child.
Montessori Tides wants to set you up for success and be your resource. In the video below, DeAnne Deleon , Montessori Tides Toddler Directress, kicks off our Toileting Series! Our toddler program is working diligently to prepare and offer guidance through this natural and joyful process. We hope you enjoy this introduction. Look ahead for more post on this series!
