  • Parenting Workshop "Siblings Without Rivalry" ~ Begins March 12th

    Austin Montessori School is pleased to offer a five-part parenting workshop, "Siblings Without Rivalry," led by Sveta Pais and Monica Pesoli. This workshop is based on the work of Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish, authors of 'How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk.'
     
    Time: 8:45 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
    Location: 4912 Sunset Trail
    Dates:  March 12th, March 26th, April 2nd, April 16th, April 23rd
     
    In this workshop, parents form a learning community to explore the following areas:
     
    ~ Supporting siblings in expressing their feelings with equanimity when in disagreement.
    ~ Responding to children based on need, rather than equity.
    ~ Avoiding placing siblings in roles so that each child comes to become his or her whole self.
    ~ Collaborating with siblings so that they can move toward resolving their conflicts.
     
    **Please note:** A pre-requisite for participating in 'Siblings without Rivalry' is the 'How To Talk So Kids Will Listen' workshop OR The Austin Montessori School Connected Family Workshop. This workshop is offered free of charge, and the cost of books is indicated on the registration form. Space in this workshop is limited and we ask that you sign up only if you are able to commit to all or a majority of these dates.

  • Children’s House Gift Giving Guide

    The leaves are falling and the cooler weather is hinting of the holiday season approaching.  During this time of the year, parents of children who attend Montessori schools find themselves researching engaging and enriching items for gifting during the holidays.  Searching for toys that support the child’s development can be an overwhelming exercise for parents. We would like to offer AMS families a few ideas to use when selecting items for children’s gifts.
