Warning: I feel many puns coming on.
Disclaimer: this is not a review of parenting apps out there in the digital world.
Parents of my age virtually know nothing about this sort of thing. But, being in the position of longtime director of our school and advocate for children and families that are getting "younger and younger", I am compelled to jump into the real world here. You can always rely on the infinite wisdom of Dr. Dave and Erin at Mind Positive Parenting. If you want the straight dope go there to get it.
I recently purchased the Primary app from Montessorium. I did this primarily :) because I would like to write for it and, as always, stay true to keeping Montessori vibrant and applicable to today's families. The people at Montessorium and Baan Dek Montessori school in Sioux Falls certainly do just that. If you check it out please let me know what you think.
I consequently dug in a bit to the app scene for parents in China and found that it is a growing phenomenon. As I've written about before on this blog, Montessori is fast becoming the early childhood education method of choice in China. I think it is time for these two worlds to meet!
The world is indeed more connected now and the possibility of connecting on behalf of children everywhere is inspiriting. I'm sure Maria would agree.
