Montessori and Potty Training Boys


My son E. is 26 months and has been wearing underwear for about a week during the day (cloth diaper at night). For the first day or two, he'd make it to the potty about half the time.... But after those first few days any suggestion of the potty upset him very much. So, I stopped mentioning the potty, thinking he is still learning about his body.... The past few days he has not attempted to go to the potty at all, just has accidents all day.

Should I be doing something else? If so, what? Should I try to get him to help clean up? If so, how? Have I missed his window of opportunity?


Oh! The joys of potty training! Boys? Oh boy!

Boys (when they potty train or potty learn) act just as you described! They are fickle! What to do?

Montessori Continent Resources

The study of the continents starts in the 3-6 Montessori classroom. As a homeschool mom, I try my best to mimic those patterns. We are working on compiling all our information for our continent studies and thought I would share with you the amazing resources I found!


Can you give a toddler a Montessori lesson?

Can you give a toddler a Montessori lesson?

Want to know the truth? Most toddlers don't really like Montessori three-period lessons: they are still learning how to control their bodies (and bodily functions!). They rebel against help and interference from adults, like diaper changes, getting dressed, sitting at the dinner table, and taking a nap...

And they insist on doing everything themselves! The trouble is they (still) need a lot of help! So you are always trying to help while letting them do it themselves!


So how does giving a three period lesson work in a Montessori environment for this age group?

The Best Beginning Reading Pintetest Boards

Teaching Toddlers Seasons


I love Etsy. That's right if you haven't heard of it, you need to go see all the great handmade items there. Thankfully I happened upon Free Spirit Kids about six months ago, and it's been love ever since. I should also mention I love the Montessori philosophy and beautiful Montessori materials. What better to teach toddlers seasons with than a few handmade items and a lovely set up.

 
Since Winter is right around the corner, I choose to start Baby Bell's week out with learning about things that go along with Winter. Free Spirit Kids Winter Montessori Cards were perfect.
