Principles of child upbringing

  1. More often take the baby in his arms. Tactile communication plays an important role in his mental development.
  2. Allow the child to sleep in his bed. Joint sleep has a developing effect on it.
  3. Do not sneer with your child. Talk to him in an adult language from birth.
  4. Engage with the baby every day. Even 1 lesson per day leads to amazing results.
  5. Do not quarrel with the child. He very subtly feels negative and anxious.
  6. Encourage his desire to communicate with other children. It perfectly stimulates the mind, competition and the desire for leadership.
  7. A child needs not only a mother, but also a father. And there should be no restrictions in communication between the father and the child.
  8. Do not forbid the child to defend his interests and even quarrel. Quarrels develop the skill of communication.
  9. Praise and punish children need to be neat. Praise for the cause, especially the boys, and punish rarely.
  10. Do not impose on your child what is good or bad. Let him get his life experience (with your help) and eventually he will begin to discern it.
  11. Encourage and support the interest of the baby to anything. Create the necessary conditions for this.
  12. Always repeat the material. It forms the right patterns in the child's brain.
  13. Do not think children's fantasies are stupid. The ability to dream and fantasize forms creativity.
  14. Learn poems. It trains memory.
  15. Try to surround the baby with the best manifestations of humanity. Listen together classical music, consider works of art, read fiction.
  16. Do not limit the child. All that he does with his hands, develops his intellect and creative talents.
  17. Stimulate the manifestation of non-standard thinking. Templates bring up an ordinary person.
  18. It is not worth buying a child for everything that he asks. The excess of toys dispels attention, and subsequently it will be difficult for him to learn.
  19. Develop tactile sensations of the kid. Offer him to touch objects from different materials - soft and hard, heavy and light, smooth and rough.
  20. Buy baby toys from parts. All the kids feel great joy because they can collect them themselves.
  21. Develop small motor skills of the child - together sculpt the crafts from plasticine, create applications, cut out paper and put the figures. As is known, "the child's mind is at the tips of his fingers".
  22. Go with the baby as often as possible. Walking is very useful, since it sets in motion 400 muscles of the body from 639.
  23. Do not expect a result from the child's work. For him, the process is important, not the result. Let him work as much as it interests him.
  24. Do not force the will of the baby. Forcing him to do something against his will, you undermine his faith in himself.
  25. Do not treat your child as your property. Firstly, it is not so. Secondly, it can cause disbelief in their strength.
