The Peaceful Home approach to parenting during a pandemic.
We are living through an unprecedented and stressful time, and many parents around the world have been asked to care for and educate their children at home. This presents unique challenges, especially for parents trying to work and oversee their children during long days at home.
Extraordinary Parenting offers authoritative, calm, credible advice that is easy to digest and put into practise straight away, as parents learn to navigate unthinkable circumstances. Central to this quick, informative read is a guide to building strong, flexible family rhythms.
Written by a homeschooling expert with the current Covid-19 crisis in mind, Extraordinary Parenting will have lasting appeal for any family dealing with a sudden change in circumstances—or even just those families who want to rethink the way their household and parenting is structured. What emerges, through Rickman’s Montessori- and Waldorf-influenced approach, is a peaceful parenting style that fosters a slow childhood and a holistic family way of being in the world.
