Kid. How is it usually perceived by others? A man without his own thoughts, desires and needs. It is said to take a bucket and go play in the sand, which means you have to go there and with the bucket. It is said to take a spoon and eat, then it is necessary to take exactly the spoon and there is. However, their own children make us look at the situation differently.
It all begins with a little surprise, when, more and more often, in response to our orders, we hear children’s crying. What is the reason for this?
It turns out that, like any normal person, a child also has his habits. For some reason only he knows, he can love something, but something is not, something to want to do, and something is not. And he is trying with all his might to bring this to us.
My daughter, I saw just amazing habits. Some are good and some are not. I try to fight the latter, but not with force, but with arguments, which, unfortunately, almost do not work.
So, the most memorable habits for me were:
Love for cookies in a certain place. When we come to walk in the public garden, the daughter immediately requires cookies. For reference, I just gave her cookies at this place just once a month ago, and since then it has become a habit.
Playing with two cars at once. If the daughter asks for a pink typewriter, then it should be given along with another typewriter – a tap. For reference, I bought these 2 toys in one store and gave both to her at once. Since then, Tamara and I have been walking in pairs, or, in other words, our daughter is played by two at the same time.
Washing hands. When we arrive from the street, the daughter immediately shows that she needs to wash her hands. And to all the guests, she is still on the threshold reminding of the need for this hygienic procedure.
In slippers – no, no! In her bed she does not get into her slippers. In general, I do not forbid her to climb into these shoes on a bed or sofas. Because she often climbs, and I have to take off and wear slippers. Laziness … So, she actively uses this permission. But saves his bed.
How to treat children’s habits?
I admit, some habits annoy me. But at the same time it is very interesting to solve a kind of puzzle: what is happening in the children’s head, why does the daughter have such habits?
Therefore, if I have a discontent, I try to pull myself up and look at the situation through the eyes of my daughter. Maybe the cookies really tastier in the public garden?
Do your kids have any habits that surprise you?
