太多的独立危险吗?

当然,有时会发生这种情况。主要来自成人错误。

对于蒙台梭利刚来的父母和看护者,经常有人问我,因为孩子已经学会了独立性,他们是否更容易陷入危险。一次,当我向我们的孩子展示如何给婴儿洗窗时,一位父母说:“谁说孩子赢了’不能去自己身上喷漂白剂,还是打开其他危险瓶的盖子,因为我们已经教过他这样做的技巧?”

这是一个很好的问题,很多父母对此感到恐惧。竞技场’我们只是为他们配备了伤害自己的工具吗?这个问题的最佳答案是检查孩子的天性。

这个孩子天生好奇。他追求自己做到最好,不惜一切代价。他想完善自己并掌握自己的能力。让我想起我最喜欢的蒙台梭利语录:

“这个人通过自己的努力能够执行生活中舒适和发展所必需的所有动作,从而征服了自己,并因此而提高了自己的能力并完善了自己。”(从蒙特梭利方法)

Because of this conquest, children are driven to touch and explore everything in their environment, especially in the first three years of life. There is little we can do to hold them back, and if we do it just breeds frustration. Instead, we offer a 安全 and prepared environment for them to explore and master the skills driven by their sensitive periods.

The prepared environment is always key. Safety is paramount. A Montessori carer would never throw a child into a room with 安全ty hazards. Anything that could harm the child is always removed, stored away or supervision is used.

提出任务并让儿童练习技能可以使他们变得更加熟练。

我的孩子知道如何使用喷水瓶和打开盖子。他们通过洗窗户和桌子,打开果酱罐和擦鞋罐来做到这一点。他们还使用专门指定的‘safe’ knives in our house for prepping food as well.There are many things in their environment to feed their need to work with their hands and master these skills. There is no need for them to seek out alternative sources. This is where Montessori shines: the environment is set up to allow the child to accomplish the tasks in which he so wants to complete. If you provide the proper, 安全 resources to practice, your child will be less likely to raid your home searching for something to feed his ‘fix.’

那就是敏感时期的事情,当孩子’我们的想法是自己布线以掌握某些东西,它将决定找到所需的东西。我们经常看到孩子具有以下一种思维方式:反复趋向于水,想要剥落水果或蔬菜(也许甚至不想吃它们!),或者想要不断地汲取一切。这是关于孩子完成一个过程并一遍又一遍地进行直到完成的过程。

所有的孩子 想要接触和探索,而不仅仅是蒙台梭利儿童。如果一个孩子很少或根本没有接触过他想要的东西,他会怀着很大的意愿去寻找。我给你一个观察到的结论:

Once when I was cleaning, I set down a spray bottle of disinfectant 上 the counter while I went to get more towels from the laundry room. When I returned, Oliver had used his stool to reach it and was spraying the counter, mimicking what I had been doing it. He needed not to fiddle with the nozzle or turn it in all directions to figure out how it worked; he has been window washing with a water squirter for over a year now. He 安全ly did what he knew the intention was to do.

另一方面,我看到孩子们在我的幼儿计划中从来没有看过喷雾瓶,而当他们第一次尝试使用喷雾瓶时,他们不可避免地总是将其喷在脸上。您必须怀疑如果奥利弗喷洒消毒剂瓶时没有经验会怎样?幸运的是,我使用的是家庭酿造的天然配方,因此所造成的损害比磨蚀性的损害要小得多,但是对于许多孩子而言,情况可能并非如此。

The moral here is that children will seek out whatever they can get. Learning the appropriate ways to use things is always the 安全st method. We provide the 安全st environment possible of course, but if for some reason our children encounter possible dangers, at least they will have some skill set for proper execution. At least, that is something.

Plus, when we give children 安全 opportunities the rewards are so great!Their independence and confidence flourishes. They are capable beings! Keep setting up your home for 安全ty and for their independent success!

带着感激,
