  • We quickly implemented Jeanne-Marie’s advice and not only did the tantrum cease, but the woman in line in front of us turned and said ‘I am a Kindergarten teacher and what you just did was fabulous! Parents don’t know how to discipline anymore and that was wonderful to see!’

    Lili Gould, mother of one

  • Through her kind, intuitive and knowledgeable guidance I am becoming the parent I’ve always dreamt of having myself…Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have been an absolute godsend…This experience has been eye-opening and life changing. My only regret is not to have met her sooner!

    Virginie Dor, mother of a toddler

  • Jeanne-Marie is down to earth and nurturing, all the qualities a new mom or worried mom can really benefit from. I am grateful for her advice and insight on parenting!… She is so passionate about her work with the Montessori education and loves helping people understand the philosophy.

  • After her very first visit I was filled with hope and excitement. I could not only see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I also felt a great sense of empowerment. I couldn’t wait to get started and within 24 hours after her visit I had taken her advices and implemented her recommendations

To complement the Montessori method of self-discipline, Voila Montessori also uses the Positive Discipline method to encourage parents and caregivers to use a firm and kind approach, with the understanding that children need to be connected to be successful in learning social skills. The Positive Discipline Parenting and Classroom Management models are aimed at developing mutually respectful relationships. Positive Discipline teaches adults to employ kindness and firmness at the same time and is neither punitive nor permissive. The tools and concepts of Positive Discipline include:

  • Mutual respect: Adults model firmness by respecting themselves and the needs of the situation, and kindness by respecting the needs of the child.
  • Identifying the belief behind the behavior: Effective discipline recognizes the reasons kids do what they do and works to change those beliefs, rather than merely attempting to change behavior.
  • Effective communication and problem-solving skills
  • Discipline that teaches which is neither permissive nor punitive
  • Focusing on solutions instead of punishment
  • Encouragement, instead of praise: Encouragement notices effort and improvement, not just success, and builds long-term self-esteem and empowerment.
