The holiday is not only gifts!

A holiday is not only gifts!

  • Get ready. Start by gathering information: read about how the celebration is celebrated in your homeland, what are the roots of the holiday. Such a search captivates, awakens imagination and adjusts the thoughts to the desired wave. After gathering information, select those that you like, and with their help organize your holiday. But remember that this is your event, and it has the right to be what you want it to be!
  • Beat the wait. A child must wait for something special. Knowing that the pussy wants to go to the grandmother (to the planetarium, to the zoo) – prepare it in advance, forming a joyful mood. Birthday baby come in two weeks? Make a chain of rings of colored paper. On each ringlet large and clear write the date and day of the week. Hang a chain with dates in the children’s room and tear off one ring each night before bedtime. The kid will be able to visually see how every day the chain becomes shorter – it means that the holiday is coming!
  • Motivate correctly. Shift the focus from gifts to anticipation of an interesting pastime: rejoice that relatives and relatives come to visit, that there are delicious dishes on the table, discuss what you will do, etc. If the mood for the celebration was correct, but the child was still upset – nothing terrible. This is a rewarding experience that helps you understand how to deal with adversity.

Learn to enjoy the atmosphere. It is very important from an early age to instill in the baby the idea that the most expensive gift is a hand-made gift (drawing, handicraft, baking, song).

In this case, the focus is immediately on communication and the ability to please loved ones.

The celebration for the youngest family members should consist primarily in vivid impressions and positive experiences (joy, pleasure, pleasant excitement, delight). But if the hopes were not justified, and the eyes are already full of tears, you need not to panic, but to save the situation. If the child is upset, and the holiday is under threat, three little tricks will help:

  1. Take the baby to the side, where no one will disturb you to calmly talk, and calm him down.
  2. Find out what exactly upset (I didn’t like the surprise, frightened the invited artists, quarreled with the siblings) and talk the essence of the problem. For example, try to find interesting features and advantages in the gift (“Look, the doors open on your typewriter!”). It is very important to sincerely empathize with the child.
  3. Gradually switch attention to other components of the holiday (treats, games with other children, dances, etc.) and try to involve the child in joint pastime.
