Habits that parents should develop in children

Children watch their parents and learn from them all their lives. They turn to their parents when they encounter problems throughout their lives, from early childhood. As they grow older, children imitate the behavior of their parents and their actions in various situations. The habits of parents also inevitably pass on to the children. Therefore, it is important for parents to teach children to distinguish good from bad habits and choose good ones. This can be a difficult task. But be patient and do not give up your goal.

Consider healthy habits that parents should develop in their children.

1. Healthy eating

How to help children cope with frustration

How do you react when your child is upset or frustrated? Do you feel the same way?

Imagine the situation: the child is not able to solve the homework in mathematics. You explain to him how to solve the problem for 20 minutes, but he still says: “I can’t do anything.” Are you upset in this case?

New studies by American psychologists explain how the emotional state of parents affects the emotional state of a child.

A group of scientists from the University of California (USA) conducted an experiment in which school children and their parents took part. The essence of the experiment was that children faced a difficult task. The researchers found that parents who remain calm in such situations can help the child cope with their negative emotions.

To measure the emotional state of children, the method of electrocardiography was used. This made it possible to establish that children unknowingly sense the emotional state of their parents. As a result, the emotions of the parents are transmitted to the children. Continue reading

Music is important for the development and relationship of the child

Recent studies by psychologists have shown that playing music with children and even just listening to music contribute to the development of the children’s brain. At the same time, other studies have shown that if parents listen to music with their children, sing songs or dance, this positively affects the relationship between them.

In other words, music has many advantages for children. Let’s consider them in more detail.

The influence of music on the development of the children’s brain

Studies in which various neuroimaging techniques have been used have shown that teaching children music at an early age (up to 7 years) causes physical changes in the structure and functions of the brain.

In one of these studies, it was found that when playing music in the corpus callosum (the area in the central part of the brain responsible for coordination between the hemispheres), the amount of white matter increases. In other words, the number of neural connections between the hemispheres increases. Continue reading
