Let’s save our children from English, dancing, home economics, gymnastics, wrestling, swimming. We will not lead them to music, to drawing, to beadwork and to the tennis section. We will leave only the school, if it already exists, and if it is not time yet, we will not go anywhere at all!
Why do we need training?
So actually my sister and her niece did. The little girl turned 6 in the summer. Next year, it’s time to go to school, but nobody wants to study as a niece. I do not say that she needs to write out a governess from England, but it is simply necessary to prepare a child for school.
In our time, such a difficult program for first-graders that no extra classes can not do. It is not the time when the Primer School is taught the year, but the letter does not begin with the name and surname, but with lines and cherries. Now children read, write and count to one hundred already at the age of 5. Yes, and tests for logic and eidetic, too, need to pass.
Now imagine a girl who knows nothing of preschool preparation and goes with zero baggage to class 1. I talked to my sister about this, and she just waves it off. It is more important for her to feed the girl with sausage once more than to read a book with her. For me, this approach to education is not clear. Why condemn a child to a negative attitude towards himself at school!
Zlata is a daughter of majors. I do not like this word, but here it is appropriate. They loaded their daughter so much that they didn’t even notice that she was sleeping on the street. At first she goes along with my children to a preschool group. Then mom takes her to English. After English – dancing. The next day she has music and rhythmic gymnastics.
She does not have time for any subject. She cannot even prepare her homework thoroughly. Does everything on the run and on the go. It seems to me that she will not be able to become a great violinist or Olympic champion in gymnastics, since you need to focus on one talent. And do not look for yourself everywhere, and even from 6 years.
The children’s body is still very weak and there is no need to try to cram everything and more there. Everything has its time, the children will still have time to dance and swim.
As you can see, any extremes are not good. It seems to me that it is necessary first of all to choose what is more important for the child and listen to his wishes. And do not pull the daughter crying to dance just because my mother likes the way her daughter looks in a swimsuit.
What do you think, where is the truth? How to decide on the choice of additional classes and where is the line between what is necessary for the child and parental ambitions?
