One of the best ways to demonstrate love for children is to help them develop their skills, to be self-sufficient, able to defend themselves and interact with the environment properly and independently, a great opportunity to promote this learning in children is by performing activities of practical life through the Montessori method.
When talking about activities of practical life refers to all those tasks that are performed in daily life, which children observe daily and feel familiar, at an early age the thinking of children is developed through the concrete, palpable or tangible, these activities allow them to develop their skills through their own experience in a real way.
Another benefit of developing the activities of practical life is that children manage to understand and adapt to their environment, develop a sense of belonging.
The practical life of the Montessori learning method manages 4 important areas which are: Caring for themselves, taking care of the environment, movement of objects, and education and courtesy, children must understand the importance that they have their own acts about the lives of others.
In other words, all actions that man performs must also seek to benefit others.
The way children perceive stimuli by the adult is very important for this reason should be sought to organize an environment in which they are motivated to participate sim import the little or a lot of experience that children may have stimulating self-esteem, not all children live the same experiences, that is not everyone will develop the same skills and their development will be at different rates.
