A Recipe for Sensory Play

adventure

We’ve had some warm days here in California. All other plans have been put on hold so that we can spend some time by the river.  Our only agenda was to have an adventure. Okay, and maybe enjoy some sensory play.   Natural things like water, mud, sand, and flowers in limitless amounts. Only hands, […]

Supporting Morning Farewells

farewell

Like so many things in our lives, our daily “Have a good, fun, day!” routines with Mike have changed as the girls do.   Young children may be ready to say good-bye one day and may hold on tight to you the next.  Even within healthy attachments and positive environments, children may feel ready to […]

Encouraging Play

play

I can’t think of a parent that doesn’t want their child to play. We know that play is, quite simply, good for kids.   Infants play spontaneously without encouragement, and sometimes despite of many distractions. As they age, our expectations of them tend to change. We encourage them, with the best of intentions, to be […]

Parenting Roads

ParentingRoads

I have written no less than three follow-up posts about how I’m feeling about our hard school experience.  My editor (Mike) has vetoed them all, determining that there is not much to be learned from them. Agreeing that my  “processing” is really of no help to anyone but me, I’ve agreed they are better left […]

Our Lives Reflected in Play

Unstructured Play

In education, assessment is the follow-up to any learning activity. Quizzes, tests, and final products are all intended to be evidence of what children are learning. At home, we too have a less intrusive way to get a glimpse into our children’s understanding, by just listening and watching their play.   In play, children can […]

Learning to Use Art Tools

color mixing 4

At first glance this may look like there may have been some learning about what happens when yellow meets blue. I think that might have been going on as well, but the real fascination was with trying to get the water into the pipette.     After some struggle, Greysen is pleased with finally getting […]

Hello Building Area, Good-bye Toy Basket

BlockSpace

  When the Christmas tree came out, I realized that we had a nice little corner full of potential. Instead of returning our dining table to this corner, I changed this to a play space.   I experimented a bit and moved the girls’ kitchen area here, as well as a small table and chairs […]

My Child is No Longer Welcome at Her School

ToddlerSuspended

  We can’t do this parenting thing on our own. My husband and I have come to rely on family, friends, medical professionals, educators and my moms club, as people to turn to for advice, answers, and sometimes just comfort.   I didn’t realize the extent to which I relied on each group until today, […]

Accessible Diapering

DiaperChange01

This is definitely in the category of, why didn’t I do this sooner? After seeing a similar diaper-changing space on a Montessori blog (I confess, I can’t remember where) I moved our changing pad to the floor when Moon started to stand on her own, though I think this would have been great to do […]

Parents Who Are Going to Change the World

DeliberateParenting01

  I belong to a generation of parents who are going to changed our world.   Even though I “shared” the following quote, “One generation of deeply loving parents would change the brain of the next generation, and with that, the world” the cynic in me thought, ‘This is a bit oversimplified, isn’t it?’ It […]
