L.I.F.E. Series: “Sharing and Taking Turns: How, Why, and at What Age.”
Thursday, February 8 ~ 7:00-9:00 pm
Hosted by Heartsong Community, 5008 Sunset Trail
The word “sharing” is derived from a Germanic origin which means “to divide.” As adults we share consciously and unconsciously: it is part of the realities of being a human being living in community, in a society with others. As parents, we want our children to reach a point arrival of authentic sharing from their core: their hearts, minds, and spirits.
In this L.I.F.E. Series presentation, Jinny Gonzalez (Early Childhood Coordinator) and Jamie Stone (Early Elementary Guide) will address:
- The developmental needs of children in the first and second planes of development.
- How Montessori classrooms foster the deep security and self-esteem required for a child to share authentically.
- How the adults in a child’s life can support sharing and taking turns when a child is developmentally ready.
- The language which supports children who desire to share, or not share.
Light refreshments will be shared at this presentation. Grandparents and other primary caregivers are warmly invited to attend.
