We all know that children like to test rules. This is a normal part of a child’s process of growing up. So here are some Montessori recommendations to help your child on their way to becoming a responsible adult.
At this young age children are like sponges, who want to learn and to understand their world around them, including emotions and feelings. By testing the limits, they come to understand that we, adults, really care about certain rules in our relationships, while the adults are starting to understand that they cannot control the child completely. Children are taking their first steps toward independence.
