A quick online search brought up a lot of information about respectful parenting strategies, like Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), Montessori, Reggio and Waldorf.

I felt completely overwhelmed with choices and unsure where to look first to decide what methods would best suit my family’s lifestyle.

I had a lot of questions like: What are all these choices? How are they different from each other? What parts can I use at home and what is better left for the classroom?

And then the biggest question… how could I know what would work? Raising a child takes 18 years. By the time I can see the results my kids will be grown and it will be too late!

It was completely unclear to me what was supported by science and how to get the best results.

Here at Guilt Free Families, I have done all the research for you. Compare and contrast modern respectful parenting methods based on what is important to your family and the latest supporting science.
