The Young Child

If you have a child, grandchild, or other family member or friend between the ages of 5 and 9, this is a great time to introduce them to the Victus Study Skills System. It is at this age that young learners understand quickly that the results in study come from the process they use to study. Teaching them an effective process during these developmental stages will set them up for greater success in all areas of life.

Years ago I became intrigued by the Montessori method of education. I was so enthralled that I became certified in the Montessori method from the St. Nicholas Institute in London.

Back then there were two different trains of thought in how to teach Montessori. All I knew was that I liked it, and I liked it a lot.

What I liked the most was that even very young people under the age of two began to understand that there was a process for everything.

Our daughter was 18 months old when she was “interviewed” to attend the program her four- and six-year-old brothers were already attending at the school where I taught part time.

She was dressed in her blue and white checked apron dress with a little blue bow discreetly taped in her almost non-existent blonde hair. Off she strutted, holding hands with the adult lady who was to interview her.

It all may sound silly. But our daughter saw, as had our sons, that this was an environment of mutual respect. And that there was a process for admission to the school.

We were thrilled when she passed the interview! As her classes progressed, I observed students learning how to do many things. They polished silver, traced and sounded out sandpaper letters, listened to tubes filled with items and matched two that sounded the same; similarly, they also smelled bottles and matched the two that smelled the same. They loved it. Nothing seemed mundane. All seemed important.

Since that time over forty years ago, I have learned more and more about the quality of results being directly proportional to the quality of the process.

Understanding and taking the necessary steps to complete a task are just as essential when making a piece of toast as they are in the complex task of launching a spacecraft.

The sooner we can introduce children to this concept of results coming from the process, the better.
