The first twelve years of your child's life is the time when we influence our children the most. When they become adolescents, the look to others on the outside which influences them.
Parents need to keep a strong relationship with their children. Giving them undivided attention to them by stop doing what you are doing and pay attention to what they are saying and doing. Truly being there for their children Responding t o children warmly rather than giving them the impression they are a nuisance. We need to give them the feeling they are valuable.
During child, growing up should give them joy. This can be done without costing anything . It does not take a lof of hard planning. You can do things together that causes laughter. Turn the music up and dance and sing together. Going someplace in a car sing along. Share in a bubble bath. Get down on the floor and play with your child, play simple games with them. Also, join together in an imaginative play and into the world of make believe.
There are many benefits to this type of activity - the first is vocabulary development. In pretend play children use vocabulary that they would never use going abut their daily lives. They may pretend to be a firefighter, a doctor, a nurse, a teacher, etc. Using words of these types of careers gives them a vocabulary that actually helps as they go into kindergarten.
Another benefit is it helps them social/emotional learning. Pretending to be a teacher brings different roles than a fireman etc. Each of these roles requires the child to behave in a different way controls their behavior and brings academic success.
Let your children be who they are. Don't kill the spirit that makes each child unique. Even though they may differ from what or who you want them to be. Celebrate who your child is instead of shaping them into who you want them to be. Let them know you are happy with their choice.
