Discipline and Freedom
This is most certainly one of the most widely misunderstood areas of the Montessori philosophy. Whilst Maria Montessori advocated giving the children certain measures of freedom within which to function - it is very clear that this freedom is 'within limits'.
Freedom in the context that Maria Montessori intended is simply that the child be allowed the freedom to follow his inner drive in order to fulfill his sensitive periods. Therefore, if a child is showing an innate aptitude towards number concepts, in a Montessori classroom he has the freedom to devote as much time as he wishes to number related work. This type of freedom however has no bearing on acceptable norms of behaviour in society. In a Montessori classroom (probably more so than anywhere else), there is a very definite set of rules and regulations that are at one with the norm of society.
