If you send or sent your children to a Montessori school

 Do you know any parenting books that lend themselves to the method well ? I'm specfically looking for something that is going to mesh with Montessori. I'm sorry for any redundancy, I'm posting this in several groups trying to reach the most moms because I know it's not a really popular topic. Thanks.

I am not sure--     I have read books about/by Maria Montessori though.

Are you only looking for books with that philosophy or are you also looking into others too, like Waldorf, Reggio, etc?

 So have I, I just wish that I could find something that would apply more to parenting that aligns well with the method. I looked on amazon and everything is educational. I've read a little about that but it's not what I'm looking for at the moment. I hadn't really thought about Waldorf or Reggio. I don't know much about either but what I know about Reggio, I was left thinking, gee that sounds a lot like Montessori. I don't know how accurate the info I had was.

I'll ask some of the parents at our Montessori school... I put up a note on the facebook page, so when I get a response I'll let you know!

No problem!  It might take a few days with it being summer, but hopefully someone will have some idea... if not, I'll ask the director of the school for her opinion when she gets back from vacation since I'm sure she'll have one or two suggestions at least!

Here are some suggestions~
I haven't ready these but you can take a look and see what you think.

  How To Raise An Amazing Child the Montessori Way

  Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense

 Montessori Insights for Parents of Young Children: Applying Montessori Principles in the Home

   Playful Parenting





Personally I prefer Waldorf,  but some quick searches online might give you some ideas.

GL!
