The world has been taken over by modernity for some years, every day new inventions, video games and modern cell phones are taking over childhood. Before the fight was to get out of the front of the television, with the passing of the years that turned off the video game and now that they leave the internet and disconnect a little from the virtual life, after all the activities for children go beyond this world and need to experience and learn other things.
2/3 year old children fidget with tablets and cell phones in a frightening way, as if they had already been born knowing, but does this modernity skip certain stages that all children must pass even learning? Painting with crayons, gouache paint, playing with clay , cutting and pasting and playing house and cart are activities for children that go beyond play. They are powerful activities for the development of children’s motor coordination, outside that stimulates creativity and can be carried out with the interaction of other children, which is very good for socialization.
I do not say that computerization is bad for children, on the contrary, after all, the world has been taken over by modernization and those on the outside are those who do not have inside. But developing children need activities appropriate for children . Stipulating limits and times is perhaps the best way to let your child stay in touch with modernity and share his time with real life.
Routine Kids Activities at Home
And when it comes to homework, do your kids help? Some parents do not usually teach or impose obligations on their children at home, either because they think they are too small or because they do not see a need. And learning responsibility is not necessary? From a young age, children can learn to have responsibilities and through small routine tasks in the home it is possible to teach them. Making the bed even if they like it, folding the uniform even if you have to redo it later or maybe dust the furniture.
For minors it ends up being fun tasks for seeing as help to dad and mom, who ends up losing grace over the years when they see it as responsibility, but the teaching role was done. Teaching and passing daily chores around the house , the child ends up becoming more independent and improving autonomy. Even babies who are already walking can be taught by asking them to keep toys lying around which will eventually become a habit.
For the older ones, why not help set the table , spreading napkins and cutlery around the table and arranging the place for each family member? As maturity new tasks of the house can be taught and passed on for them to accomplish. In addition to assisting in the development and growth of your child, you will be providing and stimulating interest in learning new tasks, as soon as you feel fit you will request new learnings. Responsibility is one of the best lessons that parents can pass on to children and it is in the small details that we teach.
Older children may have more responsible tasks if they have gone through the teaching process. Sweeping a house, washing the dishes, taking care of the pet are some activities where they can be easily carried out. Parents should never feel bad about giving their children domestic chores, as they will be the first lessons in life and responsibility that they will have before facing the world outside, so they learn from the best teachers and in the best school, WITH PARENTS AT HOME!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
