Hi! I’m Bart!

Hi! I’m Bart! I’m your host for this online presentation.

Why am I the host for this presentation?

I’m here to remind you that no matter what I look or act like on the outside - Why am I the host for this presentation?

I’m just a lizard, with some specific needs you may not see immediately. Just like your child… I’m here to remind you that no matter what I look or act like on the outside - Why am I the host for this presentation?

If your child bites…

screams…

hits…

or throws tantrums…

you’re probably asking:

How can I discipline my child? you’re probably asking:

I can give you some discipline advice

But it won’t last… I can give you some discipline advice

…until you find the root of the problem

I’m gonna give you a clue to what the real problem is…

This is Maria Montessori

She knows A LOT about these people: children This is Maria Montessori

Who's Maria Montessori?

Who's Maria Montessori? She was a doctor from Italy

And she worked with children who lived in places like this Who's Maria Montessori? She was a doctor from Italy

She devised a whole bunch of cool methods that she used with those so-called “mentally-defective” children

Her students took the state exam…

THEY ALL PASSED! Her students took the state exam…

Surpassing regular school children… THEY ALL PASSED! Her students took the state exam…

“Hmmm…that was interesting. I wonder if my methods would work with regular children too?”

In 1907, a new housing project for migrant workers went up in Rome.

No one could figure out what to do with the children while their parents were at work… In 1907, a new housing project for migrant workers went up in Rome.

So Maria Montessori became responsible for 40 3-6 year old children. (And you thought you had it hard with your 1, 2 or 3 children…)

In ONE year, these children from the slums went from this…

In ONE year, these children from the slums went from this…

…to this.

Okay, I’m about to give you a clue about your child…so… Pay Attention!

Montessori writes about her experience in her book, The Absorbent Mind…

Montessori writes about her experience in her book, The Absorbent Mind…

You probably haven’t slept in three years, so let me paraphrase that for you in English: mental nourishment! Children act out when their little minds don’t have enough

How can you your child’s mind?nourish

I’ve got a few ideas for you. There’s a reason why we lizards have been around for 10,000 years longer than you humans…we know what we’re doing.

1. Help them do it by themselves

Little children want to be like us!

For 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds, this means being independent and doing things for themselves. Opening their own door…

Pouring their own drink

Choosing and putting on their own clothes… (at least most of the time)

If you’ve done something for them and they are throwing a tantrum because they want to do it by themselves…It’s okay to go back two steps and let them do it!

Children hate feeling like babies again! If you’ve done something for them and they are throwing a tantrum because they want to do it by themselves…It’s okay to go back two steps and let them do it!

2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands

Playing with dolls or cars is fine…

…but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect

using a hammer and nails… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect

cutting strawberries with a safe knife… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect

sewing with needle and thread… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect

Play kitchens are great…

but it doesn’t require the same kind of hand-eye coordination, care and attention as cooking on a real skillet

Your child will love to perfect his coordination and abilities. As long as everything is child-sized, those kinds of activities make children feel happy, independent and trusted.

3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities It’s also called “Instructional Scaffolding.” Don’t worry if you have no idea what that means! I’ll explain.

Skills, like pouring, should start easy, like pouring water while bathing

Then progress to pouring from a pitcher… (using a funnel takes it another step further)

before letting your child pour a bowl of eggs into a hot skillet That skillet is really on!

Here's another example: Peeling

First, teach your child to peel a banana…

before moving her onto tangerines…

Finally, eggs.

Have you noticed any patterns recently? Have you seen any tantruming children in any of these pictures? No!

Children who are concentrating on doing something with their hands and absorbed in that activity are too busy to throw tantrums! Have you noticed any patterns recently? Have you seen any tantruming children in any of these pictures? No!

So, let’s review. 1. Help them do it by themselves “Let it go! Let it go! Don’t hold them back anymore!”

So, let’s review. 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands They’ll surprise you if you give them the chance!

So, let’s review. 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities Easy —> Medium —> Hard

Again… 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands 1. Help them do it by themselves

That’s it for now, folks. It’s time for lunch (bugs, yummy…) Visit again…and bring your friends next time! BYE!
