There are 2 types of parents. Some adhere to permissiveness in the upbringing of children, others live according to the mode of life. So raise their children. Some kids grow up spoiled and sick, others – healthy and adapted to life.
I belong to the second type of parents. From the first days of my life I tried to adhere to the daily regimen, to the best of my ability. But I was not very successful. Then I read that the children’s organism forms its psycho-type by 1.5 years of life (I mean a lark or an owl).
Formed a certain mode of the day, eating habits, falling asleep, waking up, especially the temperament of the child. Today my kids are 5 years old, and these are children of the regime, no matter how terrible it may sound.
Why I chose life on schedule
I will tell you about my reasons for choosing a children’s day regimen.
one. Day regimen strengthens children’s immunity and helps the child to be healthy and organized. Morning rise, time for exercise and hygiene procedures only contribute to this.
2. Diet. When a child eats the right food, even by the hour, it gives him a normal metabolism and does not allow many health problems.
3. It’s time to walk. The child should have his own personal time and space where he can calmly watch his favorite cartoons or play his favorite games.
four.Afternoon nap time (if your baby is still sleeping during the day). A good afternoon nap makes the psyche of the child more stable, less stressful. We slept until 4 years. Then I noticed that it is very difficult for them to have a lunchtime sleep and removed it from the schedule of the children’s day.
Regime children easily adapt to teams. They do not need to be accustomed to personal procedures, put to sleep. Their body works as a watch. They are easier to learn in school and converge with their peers.
Another big plus is the personal time of the parents. When your child follows certain rules, you have more free time.
My kids schedule
7.15-7.30 – morning procedures.
7.30-8.30 – watching the morning cartoons (I am preparing breakfast at this time)
8.30 – morning exercises
9.30-12.00 – personal time (I am at home during this period)
12.00 – second breakfast
There used to be an afternoon nap, now we are not sleeping.
14.00-18.00 – the time of training, classes, choreography and swimming (this time I give to children)
18.30-21.00 – time of the father and children’s playgrounds (mother rests, writes blogs)
21.00 – the time of evening hygiene.
Of course, everything is relative. Winter mode is different from the summer. There are days that are not similar to others, but wherever my children are, they always want to sleep and eat at the same time.
I brought the day schedule for children who do not go to preschool institutions and do not attend kindergartens. There is a daily routine.
But my opinion boils down to the fact that the day regimen was flexible, arranged for the child and did not strain mom.
Do you follow the daily regimen?
