As a Montessori Teacher and a mother of five, I’ve had many people ask me my advice on various misbehaviors. So I was very excited and happy when I was introduced to Jane Nelsen’s book, Positive Discipline. After attending one of her lectures, watching many of her short videos and speaking to Lucia who had enrolled in her parenting classes, I was very taken as to how close to Montessori her approach is. Both approaches believe in supporting children to develop self- discipline, responsibility, cooperation and problem solving skills and are based on the idea that the primary goal of all human beings is to feel a sense of belonging and significance.
In this article, I will share with you some insights into how positive discipline works in the Montessori classroom as well as Jane Nelsen’s approach to positive discipline.
Mihi quidem Antiochum, quem audis, satis belle videris attendere. Hanc igitur quoque transfer in animum dirigentes.
Tamen a proposito, inquam, aberramus. Non igitur potestis voluptate omnia dirigentes aut tueri aut retinere virtutem.
