La Tela di Carlotta

Educare con calma

On my podcast, “Educare con calma”, I talk about various topics, from Montessori to sustainability. Only in Italian!

Episode 1

Inizio un podcast! (credo)

Questa è la prima puntata del mio podcast. Non è perfetto, non è come lo volevo (cover a parte, che adoro!), ma dovevo pubblicarlo o non avrebbe mai visto la luce del sole.

Alcune frasi che mi ripetevo quando ho deciso di lanciare questa prima puntata perfettamente imperfetta:

  • Meglio fatto che perfetto;
  • Un'idea non vale nulla se rimane nella tua testa;
  • Il cambiamento è la grotta scura dove devi entrare per trovare il tesoro;
  • I puntini si possono collegare solo guardandosi indietro.

Alcuni miei articoli vecchi che sono andata a rileggermi per trovare ispirazione e motivazione (sì, mi rileggo spesso: ricordare da dove arrivo mi aiuta a capire dove voglio andare): 

1. Il migliore discorso motivazionale che abbia mai ascoltato (dal 2005)

2. Il potere di una decisione

3. Vuoi un cambiamento? Trova la grotta!

4. La breve, ma efficace guida per trovare la propria passione

5. Pensieri su vita, morte, e maternità dopo 20 giorni in ospedale

PS. Se non mi conosci ancora, mi chiamo Carlotta, sono italiana espatriata dal 2006, sposata a un finlandese di nome Alex con cui ho creato due persone simili come il giorno e la notte: Oliver (2015) ed Emily (2016). Crediamo nell'equità di ruoli tra mamma e papà, educhiamo i nostri figli secondo i principi della filosofia Montessori, cresciamo i bimbi con 3 lingue e cerchiamo di trattare il nostro pianeta con più amore possibile. Questo podcast è nato durante il nostro giro del mondo (e più precisamente in Nuova Zelanda).

The blog

I write mainly about Montessori, parenthood, and multilingualism. Here are some recent posts.

Mums, dads & kids
We don't know how to be parents, we learn it everyday as we go. This is my way of motherhood, the small victories and the bitter defeats, my inconvenient truths and the endless life lessons. And also all the baby products and toys we love the most.

Montessori
One day a few years ago my husband came home and said, "Why don't we put a mattress on the floor in the baby room? It'd be much more natural". "Never" was my reply. That's how our Montessori journey started. Since then we've been living, breathing and applying the philosophy at home day in and day out, starting from ourselves. Because educating children starts from the parents.

Living sustainably
Living sustainably for me doesn’t only mean to have a more eco-friendly lifestyle. It means to make decisions that are sustainable for our planet, the people on it, but also for our life, our lifestyle, and our happiness. It means to take any daily chance to evolve and be happier, healthier, kinder, more responsible and more caring human beings—the only sustainable way for a meaningful future.
