|When your child spills water, intentionally or otherwise, she should clean it up. If she cannot, you should show her, while she sits and watches until it's done. The first time. Only once. There is no shaming, no yelling, just a simple statement; 'this water is spilled, you need to clean it up'. Any subsequent times, you could say 'I am going to sit here until you get it all cleaned up'|
|It is the ultimate work of parenthood to teach our children to participate in the greater society. If there are no consequences at home, how will your daughters learn to expect and deal with them outside the home?|
|1. What do you mean 'Montessori like'?
2. Why do you want a Montessori education for your child?

just wanted to add that "sippy cups" are definitely not Montessori by the way, a child will never learn how not to spill if the possibility does not exist. From the time a child begins to drink from a cup, we offer the child a real cup, maybe a very small real cup but a cup.
