About the Book

How to Hold a Glue Stick and other Clues to Parenting Life as a parent, especially a first time parent, is not so easy and Froukje Matthews has combined her Montessori teaching experience with the knowledge gained over the years as a parent. Her own children, she claims, were her best teachers as they were also the reason for becoming a Montessori teacher. This pocket book is intended as a guide for parents and grandparents; when time permits a chapter can be read over a cup of tea or coffee. The examples and vignettes are true to life and based on nearly 30 years of observations and interactions with the very young. The chapters are not sequentially arranged and can be read as desired. The topics, based on questions asked by every new parent, are about: Learning the language The word “No” Consistency Obedience Discipline Tantrums Routines Manners Sharing Paying attention
