How do you help your child become successful? We start with ourselves.
In times of everyday problems, there are many questions for both children and loving parents. How to develop cognitive interest? How to configure your child to teach with pleasure? How to fight against failure? Why the efforts of parents are ineffective? What prevents success?
A child, even the smallest one, a world melting so many unknowns. Come closer, to understand it is possible only by “reconstructing” their own vision, having learned to see the problem through the eyes of the child. This is the main rule of any communication. In communicating with the child are successful those who have abandoned self-centeredness. Before scolding for bad writing, start with yourself and try to do the task yourself with a non-working hand. Are you satisfied with the result? Perhaps the reason is not carelessness, but lack of preparation of fine motor skills? Much more effective than the daily notation will be fun exercises on the development of this very motor skills, applied exercises with paper, plasticine, all kinds of needlework. You have to learn to see the essence of the difficulty in teaching the child, to understand its origins. A first-grader parent complains that her daughter can not remember the simplest rule of addition. The same thing about rearranging the summation. The reason, of course, is that the seven-year-old girl is poorly oriented in terms. “sum”, “sum”, “difference” sounds like “aberration” or “irritation” to her.
Yesterday’s preschooler, with his speech luggage, faces a lot of new terms, to study which there is very limited time. She offered to play with “the profession of numbers”. The essence of the game is that the number changes its profession, depending on the task. In a row it is a serial number, and in zadachas it becomes “diminishing” or “summative”. A few minutes of the game, and the child perfectly remembers the new words, and then a simple rule.
Admit it, did you get the point right away? Adherence to complex terms makes it difficult to understand the subject itself. Everything ingenious has to be simple. Helping the child, parents should not only have a good understanding of the material themselves, but also try other, creative ways to explain the essence, success is always new. At the request of one of the parents to help her explain the “complex” theme of types of communication of words in the phrase, I came up with a fairy tale analogy with types of communication “How easy it is to learn the types of communication in the phrase? A learning fairy tale”. Read it, make sure it’s easy. This is exactly the kind of learning attitude that should be: “It’s easy!” When calling for increased attention because of the “complex subject”, be sure at this point, fear of difficulties will reduce the potential for attention. Positive attitude, your confidence – good helpers of learning and guarantee the success of the child.
Children often find it difficult to merge letters when learning to read. But the explanation can be quite simple. Read my fairy tale, “How did the Magic Feather help you learn to read? A teaching fairy tale.” It uses two didactic techniques to help your baby learn to read – sound differentiation, hearing separation, and long fusion. And all in a fun form for your baby. Do not be afraid to connect associations, do not be afraid of daring analogies with other sciences. Some modern educational systems have abandoned subjects in favor of finding solutions to local problems, using different scientific knowledge. This is an educational eclecticism. Difficulties of learning are not only a conceptual complexity. Often parents complain about the lack of perseverance, frequent distractibility, bad memory. All these are characteristics of the basic mental processes. And in conclusion, information relevant to the beginning of the school year. Did you know that adaptation after the summer holidays of a primary school student can last up to one and a half months? It will take a month for a fifth-grader to be actively involved, and two weeks for high school students are enough. Discipline, outdoor activities, sports, proper nutrition will help your child quickly and painlessly get used to the study load. In the first month it is better not to visit sections and clubs.
