The model of improper behavior of a child with strangers and its sad results were shown by Charles Perrault in his tale of Little Red Riding Hood. But even this bright, but very abstract example for a child does not help to fully understand what he, in fact, wants to inspire.
Much more effective examples of real and not at all terrible situations in which young children from time to time fall.
You went out into the yard with the baby and, leaving him in the sandbox a meter away, chatting with the same moms. Some talkative person sits down on a bench – an old woman, an old man, an elderly or young woman – in general, someone is pretty.
The man clearly loves children (he himself, as he immediately reports, has the same little child), he sincerely admires all the kids in the sandbox, but especially admires yours. “Is he only three? What a kind, sweet boy!
He gives toys to everyone, smiles at everyone. Not a beech, like mine. ” The person extends a hand to the baby and continues: “Will you go to me?” At this moment, my mother’s reaction is very important.
It is quite clear that you want to continue the demonstration of the good qualities of your son and say: “Of course, it will!” Or just nod approvingly. And the child will trustfully extend a hand to a stranger – after all, he was allowed to do this by his mother.
Restrain yourself. Now the little must hear from you a firm “no.” Then immediately turn his attention to something else, such as playing with other babies.
A good grandmother, explain that in such a way bring up the child.
Familiar to all parents and situations where strangers, not holding back affection, touch your baby – they pat his head or stroke his cheek, stretch candy, chewing gum. Do not hesitate and do not be afraid to offend at this moment a good, but certainly a tactless person.
Remember that you are already protecting your child. Politely but firmly take someone else’s hand, thank with a smile and say so that your words will be heard and understood first of all by the child that you don’t need to touch unfamiliar boys and girls and that you don’t allow them to take candies on the street.
The kid is focused on your behavior. He will remember that his mother did not like it when he wanted to go with a stranger or to take something from him.
Learn with your child the four main “never”:
- Never talk to a stranger. No matter how sweet and harmless he is.
- Never get in the car with a stranger. Even if girlfriends / friends sat down.
- Never play on the way home from school. Relatives should know where you are.
- Never walk around after dark. Gray wolves and evil people do not like light.
Unfortunately, even on the threshold of your own house, namely in your own staircase, you cannot feel safe. From early childhood, teach your child one of the indisputable truths of security: never enter the entrance with a stranger. Especially if this person does not know the code.
Teach your child, calling the elevator, to stand a meter away from him, diagonally from the opening door. From this point, the cabin is best visible, and from this distance, in the event of even a hint of danger, you can quickly escape.
