    One more thing, regarding repetitive action and concentration, Montessori believed all children have concentration originally, provided that there is 'something' to attract a child keep doing, eg. it's easy to find baby indulge in open & shut door/drawer, throwing objects down etc...As the children need to do it repeatedly to understand what happen or gain certain ability, that's all normal children would do the same

    So children repeat an actions initiatively. Usually it is the adult who break their concentration at first by stopping them, or asking them to do other things......

    I think it should be for all children, but not all parents, as parents may find it hard to follow and the education in HK is walking in opposite direction...(push, push, push the children instead of following children's pace>.<)

    Hi Little bird,

    Here are the few books worth to read.

    1) The Discovery of the Child
    2) Secret of Childhood
    3) The Absorbent Mind

    The books are very good, though not easy to read, but you may find a new inspiration about children ^_^
