This week we are deconstructing our episode from last week with Simone Davies. If you haven’t heard, go back and download Episode 57 to hear about incorporating Montessori principles into your family dynamic. Stay tuned as we talk about our highs and lows, how we’ve used scaffolding to teach our kids skills, the education of families and being in tune with your kids.

Listen as Liz & Kate share:

  • Low: Anxiety spike in children due to the new summer routine.
  • High: Teaching valuable life skills to children and tapping into unknown skills as a parent.
  • Scaffolding Skills: how we’ve done this in our parenting.
  • Benefit of observing your children in the world.
  • Value of communicating with our child’s teacher.
