What adults call rest – chatter with friends over a glass of wine, a rock concert or a long feast – is very difficult to combine with communication with children. And vice versa – a rare person will feel full of energy after a noisy Myslykovka disco in the trampoline center. Many parents, even playgrounds annoy excess noise, color and fuss.
On a particularly hectic parent day, the younger members of the family pack toys for their grandmother or go for a walk with the nanny.
It seems to find a point of contact impossible.
Lena returned from the parent meeting of the kindergarten group, where her daughter goes, and complains: Children are given a celebration in honor of the end of the year. Almost everyone voted for the restaurant: one table for children, another for adults. Champagne at one table, baby champagne – at the other.
When I gave a hint about transferring the party to the rope park, they zaskali me. There, many five-year-old girls wear evening dresses like my new smartphone. Do kindergarteners like the whole evening to sit over the plates?
Jura turns 9. He was presented with a new computer, and now he is sitting in a trendy restaurant with two friends. The guys are a little awkward in jackets with a needle. Balloons are tied to the backs of the chairs.
From time to time, the father of the birthday man delicately approaches their table, wonders if everything is in order.
And in this and in another case, adults impose their own image of fun to children, and they humbly obey: it must be so necessary. Probably, there is a percentage of children in the world who would be nice to sit at the table with friends in jackets at the age of 9 and discuss technical innovations.
But I am sure that this percentage is insignificant, as well as the insignificant number of kindergarteners who will be happy only because the dress with ruffles did not wrinkle all day. Practice shows that children love movement, adventure, and – most importantly – the game.
And children love when parents play and have fun with them. Further outraged comments are distributed: “Why should we – a goat jumping in front of them? Well, no, we want to relax too … ”
