Respect is a common word we hear quite often. We show respect to our parents, higher-ups, and even the faculty at our Montessori teacher training in Silverado, California. However, when it comes to children, far too often, we forego showing them with respect.
Montessori education understands the importance of respect and its effect on children. As such, we at Montessori Teacher Training Institute puts greater emphasis on educating future teachers to learn to respect children.
If you want to start learning to become respectful to children before attending a teacher training institute in California, you can try practicing the methods described below:
- Be gentle when handling children and allow them to have autonomy over their bodies.
- Be mindful of your manners when interacting with children, as they can learn from you, both the good and the bad.
- Be attentive when a child is speaking and avoid interrupting them when they speak.
- Be thoughtful about your reactions when children make mistakes, and try to help them positively.
