12 really essential Qualities

By Valerie Taylor, July 2018

This book uses ‘12 essential qualities’, or values, to go on a journey in parenting children. The author encourages us to firstly look at the habit patterns we have, both of word and deed, and how appropriate they are and, where necessary, to transform these in order to create a world that is more nurturing for the children in our care and as a result of these changes less stressful for us. [more]

The art of the pendulum

By Claus-Peter Röh, July 2018

The line between challenging and overtaxing a child, between support and demanding too little is not easy to recognise and often fluid. At the teacher training seminar, a teacher can absorb the ideal of teaching individually and not tar all the children with the same brush. But really seeing the difference in the children is an art which has to be learnt, an art of attentiveness. Attentiveness is the gold of the future. How can we obtain the skill to be aware what is a challenge and what is overtaxing? [more]

Children learn of their own accord – if allowed to do so

By Michael Harslem, July 2018

The subject of learning support is on the agenda in all Waldorf schools. Additional learning support teachers are employed, learning support plans for various children and classes are developed, and additional therapy is offered.

Good news

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, July 2018
