American scientists published the results of a study according to which parents are encouraged to buy traditional toys for children and abandon electronic toys, which, as previously thought, contribute to children’s development.
Electronic toys, scientists say, interfere with the interaction between children and parents and with each other. Moreover, many allegations that electronic toys contribute to the development of the child have not been scientifically confirmed.
In contrast, the use of electronic toys during the study had
negative consequences, in particular, a decrease in certain psychological functions and general motor actions (balancing, running, etc.). For example, if a child uses e-books, rather than traditional paper ones, he understands their content worse.
In other words, according to scientists, electronic toys and devices have fewer advantages for a child than traditional ones. Continue reading
Elena, the mother of 10-year-old Katya, says: “Recently, her friend came to visit my daughter. We chatted a bit.

At first glance, both of these situations may seem insignificant – after all, children still do not understand much. But the children watch adults all the time and do the same. The old rule: “Do as I say, and not as I do” no longer works. Continue reading

This period can delight parents or scare. Children begin to bombard you with endless complex questions about life. But, one way or another, you enjoy the fact that your child has learned to express his thoughts. But sometimes children do not understand where to stay, what information cannot be told to strangers, etc.
If the child is too talkative, parents need to pay attention to what he says, gradually teaching him how to communicate.
Talkative child: advantages and disadvantages
If the child speaks a lot – this is not bad. This character trait has its advantages:
the child has developed communication skills. You do not need to worry about how the child feels or what he thinks. He himself will tell you everything. In a certain sense, a talkative child is easier to raise: you do not make efforts, guessing what is happening to him. For you it will be like an open book; Continue reading
