New article coming...

I have recently read an interesting post on attachment parenting and Montessori and this got me thinking...are these theories of childhood compatible? I am a die-hard Montessori believer through and through, yet also find myself strongly drawn to attachment parenting and its tenets. I have been working on an article to this effect and will be posting it in the next few days...so keep your eyes peeled!

  1. I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say on this topic.
    My little boy (now 15 months) has a floor-bed but much prefers to sleep with us. For a long time I felt guilty that I wasn't following this aspect of Montessori philosophy to the letter.
    I suppose that when we give them the freedom to get in and out of bed on their own we have to assume that they will sleep where they're most comfortable, and for the moment, that's with us.
    'Following the child' isn't always a clear-cut method!
