Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.

Holidays and Birthdays

1.  Handling the Holidays, by Susan Stephenson.

2.  A great book to help manage the activities and energies of the holiday season.  “Unplug the Christmas Machine:  A Complete Guide to Putting Love and Joy Back into the Season”, by Jo Robinson and Jean Staeheli, 1991

3.  Enjoy these tips from Sarah Werner Andrews, AMI Trainer at the Montessori Institute Northwest.  Her presentation was shared last December as a talk with parents, and she offers the handout as a resource.  Handling the Holidays, A Guide for Parents

4.  Take a step back and read these helpful guidelines from Mr. Rogers!  His approach to holiday and birthday celebrations may help us slow down, value simplicity, and celebrate the little things as well as the big.  http://www.fredrogers.org/new-site/par-holidays.html
