Yesterday, I traveled to Lakeland, Fl for a meeting with the Architects at WMB associates and what a pleasure it is to be on the same page with what is in my mind to what they can do. Exciting!
From there, I went to Sarasota to met with Dr Elizabeth Larkin who wrote the book ‘Intergenerational Relationships’ and in the course of our conversation autonomy came up, and how it is the ‘key’ to interpersonal relationships with elders. No one really wants to be told what to do, especially at that point in your life.
How compatible the idea of a Montessori preschool is attached to elder day care as one of the principles of Montessori is independent thinking and the development of a child’s intrinsic nature. Autonomy again!
