For both questions about fees and quality, the answer is "It depends...". The better non-Montessori schools can reasonably be expected to surpass lower quality Montessori schools. Also, parents and home cultures might better complement one style or the other. It's very difficult for someone who is remote to give any certain answer. A well run Montessori ...

My experience with Montessori schools is all second hand. I have one friend whose kid was not doing well in a traditional school but thrived in a Montessori school. I know another person who started their kid in a Montessori and it just did not work out so transferred to a traditional school. Montessori schools are not better, just different. I know a ...

Yes, I say go for it, send your kid to Montessori school.

There's even a group ...

Very practical question. +1 of course! I can relate myself very well to this. My 8-yr-old daughter is very possessive winning all the time and gets upset if she loses. I tackle this my way. I'll let her win and at times, will beat her in games. But then, there's a trick. I always teach her how to play that game. And, in the beginning, when she's learning, ...

Games are for fun, first and foremost. Kids don't need more lessons, they need more of your love and time. Let the lessons arise naturally. If you're most concerned about the winning and losing, then perhaps you've got a lesson to learn first, before trying to teach your children one. Also, at different ages, games can be played different ways. For a small ...

I believe this question, the related question, and all the answers I have read are missing the point a game ought to have. Where the game is not almost exclusively chance (those that are, are irrelevant to the question at hand), the point really is not if one wins or loses -- the point is to learn strategies. The type of strategy is dependent upon the ...
