Abstract/Notes: In acknowledging the privilege that we as Montessorians are given, "the privilege of being present as children construct themselves," Mary Caroline Parker proposes that parents also should be given that same privilege. Parker created an "Art of Observation" workshop for the parents at her school. She walks us through the framework for the workshop itself that includes classroom observation of their children and the follow-up that she did with parents who had attended the workshop, which included a survey and a discussion group. She pulls together the responses of parents as data to analyze, quoting many of the parent responses. She provides us a summary of work that is insightful and affirming to any Montessori educator.
