New articles added recently
Barbara Curtis, Christian mommy of 12 and author of several books, has graciously let me add a couple more articles of her's to our website, and there's a good chance more of her articles will be more added to our site in the future.
She's a former Montessori teacher, and the flavor of that perspective can be seen in her writings. I didn't really know anything about the Montessori method until I read her book Small Beginnings: First Steps to Prepare Your Toddler for Lifelong Learning, and I felt impressed with it after reading it. In this book she shares ideas that help moms teach their little ones in a fun way that enriches the whole family's life. It's very uplifting and can help parents enjoy their little ones even more. Actually, it's been years since I've read it, and my little guy is almost one, so I think I'll be pulling my copy out soon!
She's also written a book about teaching children to read called Ready, Set, Read!, and I've heard good reviews about it, though I haven't read all of it yet.
I'd like to read her other books, and if anyone reading this would like to share a review of any of her books, please do! :D
Here are the articles by Barbara Curtis that were added to our site last night:
Whose Way, After All? - This is an article that shares her concerns about the Ezzos.
No More Chore Wars: How to Get Your Kids to Help at Home - In this article she shares her thoughts about why doing chores helps our children and tips to help encourage them to do them. At the end she includes a list of suggested "chores" that our children can do at various ages and also encouraging Bible verses.
I encourage you to share your thoughts on these articles or anything I've written here. I'd love to know what you think.
