“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” – Maria Montessori
I found a wonderful, short article explaining this quote by Dr. Montessori on private schools that I wanted to share. You can find it below.
“Giving children age-appropriate responsibilities allows them to become accountable to themselves and others, as well as the environment around them. In life, there are consequences for actions, both positive and negative, and a Montessori child learns this essential life skill. The person in charge of the in-home care and directresses allow children to make age-appropriate decisions regarding their immediate needs. This develops a child’s independence and confidence knowing that they can do things for themselves. These skills inspire self-esteem as they enable children to learn to help themselves.” – Peel Montessori Private School
