must choose the perfect timing of presentation. Child attention has to concentrate on the teacher’s display.

Child needs time for repetition of the activity and teacher has to give him enough time.

And also important the teacher to understand that helping is not easy. Not always the child is the person who needs progress, teacher should progress herself to be sensitive, too – to watch and stand still.

When the teacher recognises the child effort on his concentration she needs to able to know that he is setting down and is engaged with his activity following his inner guide toward normalisation. Teacher must withdraw herself from the scene. She cannot disturb the child. Teacher becomes passive and waits patiently. The best attitude is staying quietly and observing the child. She has time to measure what kind of help, material need for him to expand his improvement.

Child needs deep concentration to gain to highest grade. Concentration grants him enough time to repeat the activity. The repetition eliminates the mistakes in his practise. If the child attains the highest level in the activity he feels serenity and joy in his work. The love of work, the love of silence, working alone, the power to act from real choice – all of them generate the child’s personality to become normalised.

Child normalisation is suspended if child mental and physical energies aren’t in harmony. When child is missed the motivation or has too much adult dominancy he cannot share his energy. His actions are aimless; his mind fills with images and fantasies.

Often the imaginative children aren’t the best in there studies, because they cannot able to direct there thoughts. These children have ‘psychic barriers’ (Montessori (1949) page 157) and there minds are out of control.

Some children are dependent upon adults. They attach themselves to older ones and always wait help from them. They cannot leave the adult to freely breath.

There are children who aren’t able to get rid of from the possessiveness mentality. All of their energies are exhaustioned to fight for possessing things. Those children whose whims weren’t corrected are inclined to exploit the adult.

On the contrary parents, adults can spoil the children’s ego. Parents, who never allow the children to act free, always interrupt them and never see the value of their work they cause brake in child’s feelings.

Fears come into children’s life when adult evade children’s ignorance.

Mental confusion directs children to lie. Lies conceal the soul. The help to regain his healthy confidence arrive from the environment. Child needs secure environment in which he controls his action and emotion. Sureness in action makes him independent. All the activity which roots in reality ensures clarity of his thoughts. His prudence enables him to avoid dangers and learn to control his action.

Positive opportunities, teacher’s supervision and encouragement provide possibilities for children to conquer against his defects and go along the way of normalisation.

To my conclusion I just have one quotation from the book of the Secret of Childhood which explains the whole normalisation process:

‘The most important discovery is that a child returns to a normal state through work… A child’s desire to work represents a vital instinct since he cannot organise his personality without working; a man builds himself through working. There is no substitute for work; neither affection nor physical well being can replace it. (Montessori (1949), chapter 26)
