Life Skills to Start Teaching Your Kids at an Early Age
One benefit of getting a Montessori education at a Montessori School like Mountain West Montessori Academy is that your child learns valuable life skills. In this guide, we look at a few important skills to teach your child at an early age.
Teaching your child honesty early helps them learn the value of telling the truth. Gently explain to your child what the benefits of honesty are. A Montessori School is a great place for your child to learn this important lesson.
The highly-trained educators at Mountain West Montessori Academy understand it's important for your child to learn to take care of themselves by forming good daily habits. Teaching them how to brush their teeth, clean up their rooms and play areas is a great way to teach them to become independent (and tidy) adults.
Integrity and Respect
This goes hand-in-hand with honesty. Even as adults, we are sometimes tempted to "bend the truth." Teaching children at Montessori School, it is important to be honest, and take accountability for their actions (however unpleasant) at an early age is a great way to foster integrity.
Compassion for Others
Children who learn compassion at an early age understand that we don't always have the best outcomes or results in life. Teaching your child to have compassion and empathy for others is a great way to assure they become well-rounded adults who care.
Failures Are Inevitable
Remember that; your child fell down many times before learning how to walk. One of the most important things children should learn at an early age is that failure is a part of life.
Teaching your child to accept the small (and inevitable) failures in life can help them deal with bigger failures as they march on into adulthood.
