Understanding the nature of the child


If you are a parent, understanding the nature of the child makes you a happier parent and allows your child to grow healthy. However, this course is not just for parents, it is for anyone who is interested to understand children and participate in supporting their natural development. This course is perfect for parents, grandparents, teachers, Montessori school staff, sports trainers, and anyone who works or lives with children. This course mainly discusses Early Childhood (Birth to 6 years) but is beneficial to understand children of all ages. It is also a foundation course that is a prerequisite for other courses: Supporting children from birth to 3 and Supporting children from 3 to 6 .

It is never too late to build a strong and healthy relationship with your child and help him/her to build or improve her own personality. This course will help you to better understand children and the reasons behind their behavior. It will clear all the doubts you have as a parent or an educator about offering the best help for the child. This course might be an important milestone helping you to start enjoying your journey as a parent or educator without yelling, tension, and unnecessary hassle. Imagine yourself swimming within the current instead of swimming against it; going against Nature has never worked. In this course, you will learn how to respect the nature of the child while successfully playing your role as a parent or educator. You will also get expert advice on many issues many parents and educators are facing with children such as a child's lack of concentration, speech delay, unhappy/unsatisfied children, twos tantrums, etc.
