I noticed that the words creative, creativity has been very popular lately. An interesting hack, a device for something – and heard – Pretty creative !. And what is behind this word?
Concept of creativity
Creativity is creativity. And if we are talking about a child, it means that this is the creativity of the baby. As a rule, children argue out of the box and unusual. We, adults, accustomed to everyday and everyday things, simply forgot how to look at the world through the eyes of a child.
Most of us have a creative focus, which is considered innate, but it is confused under the influence of the system of education, social influence, education.
You know, many perceive creativity as savvy. So be it. Indeed, in many everyday things, children come up with a lot of interesting things! I even noticed that my children, toddlers of acquaintances give out original ideas. Thinking out of the box, they can invent uses for different things. They differ from common ideas in their uniqueness.
Claimed creative personality
Have you noticed that today, increasingly, employers are demanding creative abilities from people, a non-standard way of solving problems? This is easily seen in movies, TV shows, books, in our lives. Everyone wants productive workers, with whom it is interesting to cooperate and simply communicate.
That is why we, dear mummies Alimero, need to bring up interesting personalities! After all, we live at a time when life itself dictates conditions … For example, I consider it important to stimulate the development of such an ability as creative thinking (creativity).
Important components of this ability
This issue was dealt with by American psychologists. And so they decided to determine the main indicators of creative abilities. So this:
1. Originality – is the ability to reproduce new and unusual ideas. They may be unexpected and even paradoxical, but they have a place to be. We noticed that original ideas arise from such creative personalities as fashion designers, artists, directors. But these people think in a completely different way and they have a very rich creative potential!
2. Curiosity – the ability to wonder and learn new things. In knowledge, the child reaches certain peaks, his interest to strive for new (for his world) things, phenomena, events.
3. Courage – this is the ability we do not have for us, adults. Looking at my husband’s parents and my mom and dad, I came to the conclusion that they really lack the courage. They are afraid to come to something new (be it cooking or cleaning the apartment).
And yet they still can not accept the fact that I do not like to celebrate the birthday with everyone. They adhere to the old stereotypes: to get up early in the morning, prepare a person for 10-15 and still entertain them, pushing toasts.
I ignore these outdated stereotypes (why they do not understand me). We go to a cafe where there are children’s amusement rides: a trampoline, a labyrinth, horses. And children are interested, and I can relax. After all, for me, a birthday is a holiday, first of all, for me, and not hard labor with preparations.
Amazing is always there!
You can not teach your baby what you do not know how. Therefore, together with the child you need to play, invent plots, considering yourself a creative and creative mother (and I am sure of it). In the most standard and ordinary situations, it is worth asking the baby: But what if …?, And let’s try it, let’s do it our own way, how would you like it ?, so the child develops thinking, imagination, fantasy.
Together with the child, you can invent endings of fairy tales. We, for example, invent our own fairy tales. In truth, my daughter and poetry composes. They are childishly stupid, but still. With children it is useful to play good / bad. Well, that is so clear, I think. It is bad to walk without panama, it is good when the sun shines warm. Well, when a great mood and great weather, bad when you are sick.
Do you think it is necessary to develop children’s creativity? And what do you think you need to do for this?
