Sometimes it seems to me that my daughter has an invisible motor. She can’t sit still for two minutes. Even while watching her favorite cartoons, she manages to walk back and forth over the back of the sofa or hang on it upside down 🙂 It’s not surprising that her daughter cannot finish any work.
Sometimes I get angry and raise my voice, not holding back emotions. Just imagine: the daughter will get toys out of the basket, lay them on the floor and after 5 minutes leave for another work. The same with pencils, beads, books, etc.
A year later, my daughter will go to school. It will be necessary to spend a lot of time doing homework. I worry that her restlessness will prevent her from studying well. I have a year before school to teach my daughter perseverance. That’s what I’m going to do for this:
one. To control the child’s activities. This applies to drawing, coloring sculpting, folding puzzles. I will try to allocate time in order to be during class next to her and motivate her to finish what she has begun. For example, to say that when she finishes drawing, we will make a beautiful frame for the picture and decorate the shelf in the room, etc.
2 To interest the child. My daughter loves giving presents to her parents. Therefore, the phrase Let’s draw a picture of a dad acts on her flawlessly. You can also try to interest the child by buying him a new beautiful stand for pencils, shiny colored cardboard, colorful stickers, etc.
3 Create a relaxed atmosphere. It is unlikely that the child will be able to concentrate on any occupation, if the apartment is noisy. It is undesirable at this time to listen to loud music or distract the child with a TV. Ideally, the child should have his own room where he can retire.
four. Difficult to divide into parts. For example, I know that my daughter cannot collect the whole puzzle. Therefore, I invite her to collect half today and half tomorrow. Thus, the attention of her daughter does not dissipate and she is not nervous because her plan failed.
five. Play educational games. This may include the game of fine motor skills: mosaic, designer, jigsaw puzzles, children’s dominoes, lotto. A special honor for my daughter is a magnetic constructor. This is the only thing a daughter can play with for hours.
6 Praise the child. This must be done. Even if the baby did not get a drawing or an odd job, it’s impossible to blame for it, because with this you can discourage all desire to do something in the future.
