Ways Little Kids Can Help
Maria Montessori taught that children go through a “sensitive period for order” that peaks at about age two.
Fascinated by how the world works, toddlers have a strong desire for consistency and repetition, craving routine and structure. Since play reflects real life, the way two-year-olds play starts looking more and more organized.
Combined with their burgeoning independence, this “sensitive period for order” creates tiny humans who are hungry for opportunities to help.
Inviting them to help whenever they can will create an empowering lifelong association with the daily routines that make life work and make people thrive.
