Every mother wants her child to grow fully developed, and I am not an exception. Not all children at the age of two years go to kindergarten, and not everyone has the opportunity to take them to educational studios, but this is not necessary. You can do it yourself at home with the baby, that’s exactly what I did. True, I had to deal with two daughters at the same time.
Where to begin?
With the birth of children, I was convinced that for all my actions it is best to make a plan. Of course, it’s impossible to follow him clearly and to fulfill all the points, but he always helps to reach the final goal.
First you need to make a list of everything that a child can in two years old. My eldest daughter did not speak well, but she could get dressed on her own. But the youngest daughter, on the contrary. So it was necessary to develop both.
Best of all, babies develop during games. Now in the shops you can find a lot of material for self-study. Well, of course, mother’s fantasy always helps out. For example, you can use the Internet, find and print children’s coloring or pictures for games.
For me, the first place was the development of speech. The eldest daughter spoke very badly, now it is clearer, but still bad. We read a lot, especially love the poems of Agnes Barto, many kids tell themselves.
Not an assiduous child
Another problem of my children is hyperactivity. If the younger one is calmer and easily plays sedentary games, then the older one is very difficult to get to sit for a long time in one place. We do not drink drugs, instead of them in our development plan there are games that help to be more attentive and collected.
This is very helpful jigsaw puzzles. But, as I noticed, not everyone likes, but only with large parts or wooden. My children also love to draw, especially with paints. For this we have to stock up a large amount of paper.
Reading and Math
I do not strive to grow geniuses, I do not force my daughters to constantly engage and do not get upset that they do not know how to read yet. But, at the same time, in our development plan it was that by the age of three they had already mastered at least part of the alphabet and simple numbers.
We studied the alphabet in a variety of visual aids: these are books, writing, electronic posters, magnets. In general, by the age of 3, the elder knew enough letters and knew how to count to 5. The younger daughter was also catching up.
Now it’s summer outside and we’re practically not engaged, we’re having holidays, but since September 1 we signed up for a development studio, bought an ABC book and are now preparing for lessons.
The main thing in the development of the child, in my opinion, is not to overload him, but to interest him. My daughters love to learn. I want to believe that it will always be like this.
