8 types of child intelligence: development tips

In modern society, it is generally accepted that the child’s performance in school is the only indicator that determines its potential. When a child gets older, many parents want him to become comprehensively developed and successful in different areas of life. But before he goes to school, you must understand – your child is smart, despite his grades and physical fitness.

Scientists claim that there are different types of intelligence (there are 8 of them), and a child can have any of these eight types. In some ways, he will certainly be strong.

Parents must recognize the signs that characterize their type of intelligence from an early age. If you begin to develop these traits from an early age, you will be able to assess its potential and understand that it can be more important than academic performance in mathematics or physics.

Actions that prove love to a child

Every child needs love, attention and time that parents will spend with him. You must help your children feel safe and strengthen their self-confidence. So you will make a great contribution to his future.

The child is most affected by the habits and rituals that are accepted in your family. Even on days when you are very busy, you can show your child that you care about him.

To ensure that your child always feels valuable and loved, follow these guidelines.

1. Be careful. When a child wants to talk to you, listen to him. Set aside all affairs and maintain eye contact with him. Show him that you are interested in what he is telling you – is it about insects, a movie that you’ve watched many times, or something else. If you cannot immediately quit your activity, tell your child about it and return to the conversation as soon as you have free time and you can pay attention to it. Continue reading

How to properly develop a child’s speech skills

It is widely believed among young parents that for the development of the child’s speech, you need to talk with him as much as possible. You can read such thoughts in books on child development or on the Internet, hear from pediatricians, etc.

If you are seriously interested in this issue, you may also have heard that children living in poor families hear much less words from their parents than children from wealthy families. This slows down their speech development.

From this we can conclude that parents from low-income families are to blame for the fact that their children are not sufficiently developing their speech skills. But there is another side to this issue: how much should one talk with the child so that his speech develops normally?

The idea that children from low-income families hear fewer words from their parents and because of this are inferior to their peers in speech development was first expressed by American psychologists Betty Hart and Todd Risley. This idea was propagated by psychologists and became an argument in favor of the fact that parents should talk with children from an early age. Continue reading
