Pros/cons of montessori for a strong willed child?
For a child who sometimes has a hard time following instructions, is montessori the wrong fit? I am looking at preK options for my child. She is bright and her academic development is going very well. However, she has had some issues with following instructions (depending on the instructor and various factors). She is quite strong willed and there have been instances where she has really rebelled when commanded to perform tasks. My question is whether a child like that should go to a more structured preK in order to adjust to more structured environments or whether montessori is the right place for her? I like the academic work at the montessori that we are considering but am worried that perhaps my daughter would be better served by being in an environment where she is required to perform tasks on the teacher's timeframe rather than on her own. Your thoughts and experiences would be much appreciated.
