It’s the last day of 2016, and we’re sure you have plenty of good memories to reminisce about from the past year. Similarly, we wanted to think on the good times from Guidepost Parent and share the top 5 most popular articles from 2016. Revisit the goodness one more time, then look forward to an exciting year ahead!
Here we go:
1. Practical Dressing Skills at Home
The Dressing Frames are tools you can find in the Montessori classroom that help children master the skills required to dress themselves. But what are they, exactly, and what is their purpose? We’d like to explain a bit more about this classic material, and give you ideas to incorporate this skill-building technique at home!
2. Giving the Gift of Nature
Guidepost Parent contributor Carey Leichter joins us with words of wisdom regarding children and nature. Should children get out and get dirty? What benefits does being in nature bestow on children?
3. Build your Village
We like to think of Primary as place for parents to share insights, engage with other parents, and get inspiration for awesome activities to do with their children. We like to think of it is a modern digital village: a place to turn to for resources, support and encouragement. In this video from Ms. Wood, she inspires us to create our own village.
4. Today was a Such a Good Day
“Ever since my son turned two in February, my perspective on parenting has shifted. As a baby, it was so easy to find the joy in each new development. When he ate his peas, held his own bottle, crawled up the stairs. But like all new parents, anxiety came easily, too, and it was a mighty achievement just to know your sweet boy was fed, comfortable and safe.”
5. Hearty and Gluten Free
Guidepost Parent Contributor Omielife wrote a heartfelt and gluten free post, on challenging ourselves to reduce carb intake and explore other, healthy options.
