Teaching Children to Share with Montessori Teacher Pauline Meert

Ever wondered why "sharing is caring" might be a concept misunderstood by our little ones?

Ever wondered what the outcome may be of insisting your little one share their beloved toys before they're ready?

Pauline Meert, co-founder of Sophia Montessori Academy and an accredited Montessori teacher, returns to our show to unravel the complexities behind teaching kids to share. With heartwarming anecdotes and breakthrough strategies, Pauline guides us through fostering a family atmosphere where love triumphs over transactions, particularly for children under six. Her approach challenges the status quo, as she offers a refreshing Montessori perspective on nurturing adult virtues within our young ones.

Striking the right chord as a parent often means walking a tightrope between praising our children and fostering their independence. Pauline illustrates this balance by sharing strategies for helping kids set their own boundaries, especially among siblings with age differences. The episode is rich with practical tips on using specific phrases that empower children to articulate their needs, as well as the pivotal role of grace and courtesy lessons. These nuggets of wisdom not only aid in social development but contribute to a harmonious home, especially in the context of family huddles that reinforce clear communication.
