The Child in the Family

By Maria Montessori

Full of anecdotes, this book offers a sharp observation of society and families. Despite the changed world we live in, the relationship between child and adult is still fraught with difficulties. The questions raised in the book are amazingly as relevant today as when it was first published. Maria Montessori stresses the importance of the respect we must have for the young. Montessori principles are presented practically by critically examining the situations described. It is a book suitable for parents, teachers and anyone involved in childcare and education.
