Setting Limits the Montessori Way

By Rubi

Being a mother is one of the biggest challenges I will ever have.  In my opinion, caring for a tiny human being could be one of the most rewarding things in the world and the most stressful thing at the same time.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL BORN IN 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s! How on earth did you manage to survive?

This is an open letter to all of the kids who managed to survive the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s!

First, somehow, by some miracle, you survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried you …simply because no one said that was required. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

This belief in self-leads to the courage to try new things. Self-morale really affects every aspect of a person’s life because it affects how you value yourself and those around you. Fostering healthy self-esteem in children is a step to helping them have decent lives.

A Social Stories Intervention on Playing Games and on the Social Skills

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which is a neurobiological disorder, have features that are apparent in early childhood. The most obvious feature of ASD is difficulty with social interactions (cf. Kuoch & Mirenda, 2003).
On one side of the spectrum are children who wish to be alone and avoid other people; on the other side are those who wish to communicate with others but do not know how to initiate and maintain communication, and thus, their communication is usually inappropriate.
