Ep. 8 | Montessori Sleep Podcast with Chloe Huth
The topic of this podcast is -how to sleep and be happy-
Child psychologist and sleep specialist, Chloe Huth, speaks with me about how to handle the most common challenges in sleep so the whole family can find balance and rest. Her approach is very respectful and individual for each child, much like in Montessori + I also chip in with Montessori tips. I think that this is the best podcast we have made so far so I hope you enjoy it!
You can schedule a private consultation via Skype or at her Berlin-based practice here: www.parentsofberlin.com
Ep. 7 | Montessori from the Start
This podcast is about getting back to the start with the Montessori approach from birth to 6 months old. Topics include the materials we use, the way we prepare the environment, and the role the adult plays in the Montessori environment for babies.
Ep. 6 | How to stop toddlers from hitting, pushing & biting
Our discussion this week is the Montessori approach to an important, and sometimes a seemingly impossible topic: how to stop toddlers from hitting/pushing/or biting. Your toddler might be going through this phase currently and this podcast will help give you the tools to deal with it the next time the situation arises, and eventually prevent it from happening.
This podcast will answer the following three questions:
Why should we get involved?
Why do toddlers hit, push, or bite?
And how should I respond when this happens?

Ep. 5 | How to say "no" by setting kind limits
This week's podcast is about saying "No"- how to set limits in a kind a respectful way. In Montessori we prepare the child's environment for their natural development, and we also prepare ourselves to offer guidance, model behaviour, and set limits when necessary. I hope you find this helpful!
Ep. 4 | Trusting The Child
How do we know we are giving our babies everything they need? Montessori encourages us to trust the child's natural development. This podcast is about how freedom of movement and a prepared environment work together to support our child’s needs.
Ep. 2 | Imagination and Creativity in Montessori
There is a common misconception that the Montessori approach doesn’t encourage children to be imaginative and creative… In this podcast, I will discuss the Montessori approach as it relates to imaginary play, fairytales, and creativity through art and music.
