I have always been surprised by women who, having given birth, consider their civic duty to their homeland to be fulfilled and their contribution to the improvement of the demographic situation in the country. Indeed, here it is, little man, now let it grow like grass in a field.
In fact, give birth – a little. We must also bring up. Of course, almost half, if not more, of abilities and character traits are already incorporated in the child at the time of his birth. But in order for these same abilities to manifest themselves, it is necessary to activate them. Otherwise, even the greatest talent would die in the bud.
For these reasons, you should not justify your laziness by employment. After all, you can engage with the baby even on the go. For example, I know one mom who, being busy, gave her child an album and pencils. All the time they gave. And even not particularly watched that he sculpts there. So he grew up, graduated from art school with honors and is now studying for a designer. It is doing well.
So it is not necessary to spend the whole day in classes at the table and with all the relevant paraphernalia. Teach the kids in between times.
For example, I have adapted to walk walks. On the street, we learn to observe, get to know the world around us, develop memory. For the solution of the last task gathering works fine. And you can collect anything your heart desires.
We are most interested in pebbles. Walking, we collect them and put them in a specially prepared bag. At the same time, we carefully examine each find, mark its features, shape, color.
In addition, we pay attention to the place where we found it and what is happening around (the dog ran past, the bird sat on a tree, a tractor drove, etc.) The main thing is not to collect pebbles of the same type. They must be strikingly different from each other.
Then, already at home, we re-examine the entire collection and recall the information about each specimen in it.
Everything else, perfectly train the memory of poems and songs. You can also teach them on the go, on the street and at home. It is important to know the rhymed creations by heart.
You walk with your child – tell him poems. In this case, do not just recite them for yourself, but include the baby in the process. You can pretend that you, for example, have forgotten the words, let the child remind you of them, or knowingly tell a verse incorrectly. The kid will definitely want to fix you. For example, in the poem we are talking about Tanya, you tell Masha. Or let a whirligig and the like sway instead of a bull.
And familiarity with the outside world
We also do street observations. If we see the car, we determine its color and purpose. An ambulance carries a doctor who treats people. She always has a cross and the numbers 03 on board, as well as flashers. And why should she last?
Of course, we are interested in the changes that occur with nature as the seasons change, curiosity is the behavior of animals and birds. In other words, everything that happens around.
By the way, with this approach, you increase the curiosity of the baby, which is also useful. My son, at the age of 2, began to harass me with questions why, why, how, how. And the vocabulary with the help of such conversations is noticeably expanding.
Thus, walks turn not into idle vacations, but into a fascinating journey, which not only will be pleasant to the kid, but, undoubtedly, will benefit him.
