Montessori and Natural Parenting

As a mama who is passionate about natural parenting (‘attachment’ parenting, ‘extended’ breastfeeding, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, gentle discipline, etc) and increasingly incorporating Montessori (and Waldorf, more on that soon) methods into my home; I was stoked to see the article Montessori and Attachment Parenting at At Home with Montessori.

It is such a lovely post and clearly shows how both of the parenting philosophies can work together.

Another great article on the subject was written earlier this year at the Natural Parenting Network: Montessori and Natural Parenting.

I truly think that there is no one way to parent and that mothering changes and adapts with each child and with time. However, I think there should always be an emphasis on respecting the child.
