Everyone has their own difficulties in life, therefore, one way or another, few people manage to give the child as much attention as they would like. I’m not an exception. So I had to look for and look for opportunities, how to give the child the necessary attention for him and help him to master this world.
I think it is not so important that I work at home or in the office – in any case, on working days, we would have had morning time when we were going to kindergarten and evening, when we were going home to sleep. In fact, not so much time. Therefore, the first task is to organize your working day.
At this time and in such a state it is difficult to talk about some purposeful educational work. You’ll rather bring up yourself here, trying to wake up the child gently and positively, to persuade him to go wash, make a bed and get dressed.
Here, on the way to the kindergarten, when the two of us more or less woke up, we often have various conversations about plans for the day, about possible difficulties in the kindergarten, etc.
The end of the working day
Taking the child from the kindergarten, I usually do not need to try to talk her on some topics, like in the morning. Here the child has a lot of joy from her mother’s parish and a lot of impressions that I want to share.
On the way to the site, we are discussing everything that worries her now and today: how the day went, what they did, what they ate, what problems they had in communication, how they were solved, how they should be solved, etc.
Then the child is left to himself, the playground and the world around him, so I allow myself to sit and read a book. But still, I follow the behavior and communication of the child – sometimes there are some difficult situations for her in communication, which can then be discussed and learned from them some lesson.
For example, that not everyone is always ready to play with you, that someone may have different moods, desires, etc. Yes, and most interesting to see how the child behaves in a given situation.
Communication at home
Unfortunately, sometimes you have to sit in the evening and refine tails for work. It is more difficult to communicate with the child then, but you can explain a lot by your own example. As a result, yesterday the child joined up with the old laptop, printed huge letters on it in the Word, and resolutely declared that it helped me to earn money.
Often I leave the housework for the evening. Then it can be done together, which is doubly pleasant: we put things in order, and we will communicate, and at least somehow re-educate ourselves. But for the evening I determined for myself an iron rule – at least half an hour to give the child undivided attention. Work-work, but it can be finished at night.
Therefore, yesterday I sat down with my daughter to paint with markers on the razukrashki, as she asked. But along the way, we discussed a lot, including corrected knowledge of mathematics and generally had a pleasant time.
Apparently, therefore, the daughter calmly fell asleep, without requiring any special attention. But as a rule, I try to read to her several tales or her favorite rhymes before going to bed. The only thing without which we never fall asleep is hugs and tsemachki.
Even if she has already received her portion of tenderness, she can still sometimes get up from the crib, come and hug again, kiss and tell Mom, I love you very much! But then he sleeps calmly and serenely.
And how do you find time for a child?
