What is Montessori education? To start talking about Montessori education first I have to write a little bit who stands behind it. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was one of the firsts female doctors in Italy. At first she focused in psychiatry and then got interested in education. She went deep in child studies and pedagogy. In 1907, Maria accepted a challenge to open a full-day childcare center in San Lorenzo, a poor inner-city district of Rome. The students were ages 3 – 7, who were left to their own while their parents went out to work. This center, the first of its kind in the nation, and a high-quality learning environment, became the first Casa dei Bambini. She spent a lot of time observing children and learned that they prefer order, responsibility in regard to their environment, doing real-life work with real-life materials, working in quiet, and learning socially acceptable personal care. She respected the child and believed in his or her capability. Using scientific observation and experience Maria designed learning materials and a classroom environment that fostered the children’s natural desire to learn and provided freedom for them to choose their own materials. In the years following, and for the rest of her life, Maria dedicated herself to advancing her child-centered approach to education. She lectured widely, wrote articles and books, and developed a program to prepare teachers in the Montessori Method. Through her efforts and the work of her followers, Montessori education was adopted worldwide.

I started Montessori children garden in Kaunas city when I was 2 years old. I remember that I was prepared each year for 2h performance in front of Santa Claus, each time during festivities I showed alone all the performances while other children from other children gardens managed only one song or one poem. I think for active children is the best place to explore themselves.

It’s so nice to hear! Actually everyone fits in here- the calms ones has a respect of their privacy and the active ones the freedom to express themselves. Altogether we learn how to respect each other❤️

I love the Montessori method and I think it is great to learn how to educate children especially in a time between 5 to 7 years in which we are simply rushing in making them meet the school deadlines and letting them free in the short period of time where they are not obliged to study. Moreover I find difficult to think about the period between 3 and 6 years old. The steps that a kid need to take from 0 to 1 year are clear. From one to three they have to learn to walk for always longer distances and to be indipendent while eating, speaking and without a pam. But between 3 and 6 years old I don’t think that children should simply play. That’s why Montessori method can help me a lot to look after them.

It is the first generation (or second at best) of wealth creation in Lithuania and the ones who got their fortune are still unwilling to loose control or hire someone to manage their assets. On the other hand, those who offer wealth management services more often than not are learning by doing.

𝕊𝕔𝕚𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕚𝕤𝕥𝕤 𝕚𝕕𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕪 𝕘𝕖𝕟𝕖 𝕝𝕚𝕟𝕜𝕖𝕕 𝕥𝕠 𝕥𝕙𝕚𝕟𝕟𝕖𝕤𝕤 𝕥𝕙𝕒𝕥 𝕞𝕒𝕪 𝕙𝕖𝕝𝕡 𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕚𝕤𝕥 𝕨𝕖𝕚𝕘𝕙𝕥 𝕘𝕒𝕚𝕟 Let's discuss... 1. What triggered my nerve particularly, is the fact that the research was solely based on the very 1% on population, who stay metabolically healthy thin people, stressing the fact that it is unfair towards the other's, who are putting effort in looking good. I love having to put effort in everything. 2. Maybe this is not exactly what the scientists suggested, however the journalists introduced it in a way that everyone will be able to pig out no matter their health consequences. (This is most meutral article I could find) 3. Thin gene will eventually kill our planet as it already struggles with human activity directed towards our survival, regarding food resources. 4. This will completely destroy the discipline of eating habbits, promote even worse food waste and destroy all the boundaries... 5. Is this definitely something worth researching instead of promoting healthy food choices ? What do you think? Am I too paranoid that humanity will turn this thin gene to their own egoistic advantage? https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/05/200521112617.htm
