Montessori Parenting - raising calm contented kids

Learn how use the essence of Montessori in your everyday parenting

Montessori looks so simple and beautiful on those perfect Instagram posts and YouTube videos, but you are not really sure how to start.

Perhaps you’ve tried on your own and found it’s not that easy.

You try to guess, what’s gone wrong.

  • Is it me, am I doing it all wrong?

  • Is it my child, are they not a Montessori type of child?

  • Is it the toys, are there too many or not enough special Montessori materials?

  • Or does Montessori not really work? Spoiler alert, it does!

I did exactly the same thing when as a young teacher I first read about Montessori.

I tried to do it on my own, and I wasn’t able to do it successfully.

I needed training, support and mentoring. Once I had that Montessori was easy!

I’m now offering training, support and mentoring to you so you can become the effective Montessori parent you so want to be.

”Paulene exceeded our expectations, she was down to earth and truly understood our parenting challenges.
In listening to us, she gave great practical strategies, along with the reasons why.
We have implemented many of the simple tools provided, and these have definitely helped replace an authoritarian approach with one that is based on choice, that is calm and results in happier and more well-behaved boys (and parents!).“
