Then allow an extra five minutes on top in case someone cannot find their gloves or another emergency arises, and you are sure to have a more relaxed start to the day and more cooperative children. What I learned is to practise going slow most of the time. Then when there are inevitably times you do have to rush, you will find you have more cooperative companions.
Just as a Montessori classroom is prepared in a way that everything has a place, the work looks appealing, and the furniture is child-size, we can set up areas of our home so that our children can have more independence. Then the area is attractive and functional for getting out the door and for when we get home too. This may mean choosing clothing that the child can manage themselves, for example, velcro on shoes or a safe way to hold on to the handrail while going up and down stairs, etc. And we can break down the skill they are learning into small steps , for example, putting on their own coat:.

Just as tackling a tricky subject with your partner or boss requires some planning, timing is everything with your child. It can be frustrating to be interrupted in the middle of a phone call or whilst trying to read something. Children also prefer not to be interrupted if they are busy with something. Allow them to finish what they are doing before you interrupt them, for example, to tell them to use the potty or to get ready to leave.
You can choose to start finishing up your game or you can put it somewhere so you can finish it when we get back. Getting down to their level and making eye contact also helps get their attention more than calling out from across the other side of the room. Once you have sought cooperation from your child, it is worth counting slowly in your head not aloud to 10 before repeating yourself.
Children need to process what we have said and, while we think they are ignoring us, they are just taking longer to process the information. Some kids love checklists, even before they can read.

I could detail the meticulous planning; the writing and re-writing of text that will never be read; the hours of researching and verifying the facts; the careful planning of colour balance and atmosphere; the sleepless nights putting paint to paper and the in-depth discussions of paper stocks, cover finishes and format variations.

A message from the author about her inspiration for the character of Isadora Moon : There is actually quite a bit of history behind Isadora Moon. About ten years ago, on my art foundation course, I created a character called Victoria Stitch and wrote and illustrated a picture book about her. She was a grown up, naughty, slightly gothic, fairy type character and she had a Pink Rabbit who she always dragged around with her.
Victoria Stitch became like my alter ego and I always kept her close to me and worked on her in my spare time. Over the years she evolved. She started with pink hair and then she turned even more gothic looking with black, messy hair and with bat wings instead of fairy wings. As my style of illustration changed, she changed too. She is extremely special to me.

So Isadora Moon was born! I also gave Isadora Moon fangs unlike Victoria Stitch as when I started to think about the backstory for her why she has batwings, what species is she etc… it made sense that her mum was a fairy and her dad was a vampire. This is why Isadora Moon is so special to me — because she was born out of a real passion project of mine. I absolutely adore her.
