Discipline rooted in "learning" can help children find a positive sense of independence and identity. At Turning Point, we connect our Primary Montessori roots through the Elementary and Middle School years in order to honor each child’s individual path and nurture her/his sense of self-respect and responsibility. This holistic approach requires continual modeling, explicit teaching, and tireless encouragement of a growth mindset as children grow and develop within a community they hold dear.
“I’m the only one not playing Fortnite after school!” “If you don’t let me do it, I will be left out!” Do these pleas sound familiar? If so, you are not alone; as parents and educators, we are all in this together.
As anyone who spends time with children in the “tween” years can attest, adolescence is a magical place. At Turning Point, we not only understand the challenges of middle school, but we embrace and truly enjoy the incredible opportunity we have to work with adolescents during these years of incredible growth.
