The Child in the Family
This book is a revolution for it's time and still is as actual as if it were written last month. Explaining the way of dealing with the child in such a way that any reader can understand it, helps each educator to gain more understanding of the philosophy of Maria Montessori and her applications.
In this book emphasizes Maria Montessori that children from birth on should be treated with respect, the same respect we would have when we have a guest in the house. She talks about the newborn, the first period of life and the developmental needs. One would wish that our kids' doctors would read this information! Maria Montessori writes about kids and teens and their relationship with their parents.
