We Have The Ways of Adults,and The Hearts of Children.

 In my SAT prep textbook, there was a passage about the founder of the Montessori education system, Maria Montessori. Her theory about childhood psychology interested me allot so I did some research about it. I thought that her theory about most constructive times of the day, diversity,and environment t affecting learning was profound. I know for myself that I'm not productive at all around mess. For example, if I need to do my homework in my room, it needs to at least be tidy or I'll just be to distracted to do anything. I'm at my best concentration and focus at morning,night, and in library's, bookstores or coffeehouses. Also, I discovered that the reason I prefer my college classes over my high school ones that in my college classes I'm in a more diverse environment than in my high school ones. When I tap into my "preferences" I can get allot done without feeling super stressed. When I don't, it takes allot of tea to get through the day. ;) The point is: Since we're all grown-up children anyway, Montessori principles could be applied in high schools, colleges and workplaces to increase productivity. Even though it would take some money to apply those changes, it would eventually pay off. Less stressed, more motivated students and workers. Less sick days because stress increases your rate of sickness. More success stories. If you want to learn more about Maria Montessori the link is Here. Last but not least ,a terrific Kings of Convenience song.:)
 Much thanks for reading. Many many hugs and warm feelings.

  1. I totally agree with your title, so so cute.

  2. AMEN! my mom always wanted to have my siblings and I educated at montressori brother and I are especially hands on learners, and well, lets face it, there's not a lot of that in high school algebra :/ Opposite to you though, I prefer to work in utter chaos, because I find it helps me focus on the right things and block out the other stuff. You've always got such interesting posts on things I don't think too much about, great job!

  3. This is so cool. I've been thinking about sending my son to Montessori when it's time for him to go to school. I know a couple of moms that have sent their kids and it went really well!

  4. Thank-you for the comment my lovely, I love the pictures your post as always they are so gorgeous! I love the Kings of Convenience.

    Lots of Love,

  5. I don't think we have these schools here, but I think we have something maybe a little similar, called the Steiner School.

    You're right, workplaces could learn a lot. I know I've had a lot of bosses who think being mean to workers makes them work better. Really? How dumb is that?

    Your blog is really inspiring. I'd love it if you checked mine out :)
