I – We
The birth of my son Max made me re-think my life.I realized that banking was not what I wanted to do.
Bedtime stories with a flashlight and lullabies for dolls, our friends the Moomins, Karlsson-on-the-Roof and Monsieur Maupassant; we shared a world full of emotions with the characters amd with each other – that is my true calling. A person, his feelings, his relations with the world – that’s what is interesting for me.
„All roads lead to people.“
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I understand parents’ feelings
When Max was diagnosed with dysgraphia, I decided to pursue a degree in psychology without hesitation to become my Smidge’s best friend, like Karlsson in our beloved book.
That’s how my new happy life started, the life I live up to now. My kids are my lighthouses that lead me to happiness.
Varya is born. By this point.I’ve graduated and led my first child-parent groups. What do I feel?
I feel as if I were Alice and magically transported to a Wonderland garden that was unattainable before and I realized what my destination was.
I felt as if I had wings! Or was it a propeller?!
My second daughter Eve is born. I started studying baby massage and swimming. I realize that the main way of communication with babies is by touch.
Through touch we get into contact and build the attachment. „Touch me if you love me!“ – is the main signal a baby sends to our grown-ups universe.
I’m 43. Teo is born and I go through another personal rebirth. I discovered Montessori pedagogy. I could have explored the depth of this system by only being with Teo through his childhood.
Yet I actively practiced this method and I saw how it works for kids, how powerful it can be, and how it can change the life of a little person and his parents.
Now you know my story. Shall we start to build your story together?
When all the „screams and shouts“ hit that crucial limit, a experienced guide can turn the tone into a more peaceful and constructive dialogue.
I will be with you, sharing my experience, soothing, supporting.
The first sense of touch occurs in the uterus. During 9 months of pregnancy amniotic fluid and uteral movements activate the embryo’s brain, relax it’s muscles, and create the feeling of comfort for the baby.
Finally after going through the strongest embrace, after reaching the peak of tactile contact, a newborn baby finds himself … in the vacuum.
The little one has spent 9 months surrounded by liquid and he is getting used to his new life with his mom, dad and … gravity.
A delicate and slow swimming process reminds the baby of the tranquil condition in mom’s womb. Tension and muscle clamps that might have appeared in the birthing process go away, the belly relaxes, and the fists open.
The magic of the Montessori pedagogy is that it allows you to discover a little person’s individuality. But it’s not the theory that is miraculous, it’s the child who really is!
Parenthood, that was once new and scary, now becomes clearer and more familiar.
