Of course, I am raising a child. And do not grow fresh labor. But I think that the work has never spoiled anyone. I really want my son to grow up not lazy, ready to help people, and with hands growing from the right place.
So far we are not talking about some skills and abilities. Now we still have to develop motor skills. But as the son seeks to repeat after us (and we have a lot of things to do), we try not to discourage him. Moreover, it is also useful for him.
If I clean, my son takes the brush from me. Wiping the dust, I give him another wet cloth. He especially likes to wash the dishes (so this love would stay with him for a little longer :)).
Separate song with washing. It is necessary to load laundry into the car, because after loading you can click on the buttons. The car squealed, the son is already near her. I now, it happens, do not have time to come running after him, as the cycle is turned off (this is good, otherwise it used to start the cycle quite often).
After that, I go for a basin on the balcony. Basin immediately migrates into the hands of his son, and my boy runs to lay out the laundry from the car. Moreover, he is now trying to hang.
If one of the adults came from the grocery store, the son immediately pulls the bag into the kitchen.
We try to support his aspiration.: we praise him for how well he helps his mother, how beautifully he hung his underwear;) how quickly he did something.
Oh, there is room for activity. We try to dig with a shovel, and to scratch with a rake, and even to wield a saw. Of course, these things are dangerous for the child, one on one with a saw you will not leave. But also select immediately not in a hurry. Therefore, our business is not done soon. I can’t get to the bed with my favorite lilies: I often get distracted by the assistant.
The most favorite subject of the son in the country is the watering can. Watering long, hard, to the dirt. Apparently, children, like all normal adults, can watch the water flowing without tired … Well, now it’s warm and you can not be afraid of wet pants and sleeves.
Of course, it would be more convenient if the son rolled the car all day and played in the sandbox. But the world of an adult child attracts more, and we try not to dismiss it. All the cases still can not be undone …
Maybe I argue somewhere not modern, but maybe someone will see in my actions selfish motives. I just think that it is right when everyone in the family has some responsibilities, everyone has to do something useful for the day, and not lie on the couch in front of the TV when other family members plow. In this spirit, and bring up their children.
In the end, any joint work unites, and it is interesting to communicate not only at the festive table, but also for common everyday affairs.
What do you think about this?
