What happens in your child’s head?

Many of us have seen the cartoon “Puzzle”. It shows the baby brain control room. The publicities of the child work so that he feels safe and happy. The plot of the cartoon becomes interesting when Fear, Anger, Joy, Disgust and Sadness begin to fight for control.

For example, when Fear takes over, the child cringes. When Anger is the main thing, the child begins to swear. So we understand that all these characters reflect the emotional experience of the child.

But such a model actually works. The cartoon pretty accurately shows how our emotions work. There are also whole areas of psychotherapy that use similar models. For example, one of the ideas of systemic family psychotherapy is that within each of us there are several parts, or subpersonalities, that interact with each other and determine our behavior.

Back to the cartoon “Puzzle”. He largely explains children’s behavior. Imagine a typical situation: a three-year-old child asks you for a blue cup that he likes. When you give him a cup, he becomes hysterical. If you ask him: “Why?”, He will answer: “Because you gave me a blue cup.” Continue reading

The benefits of daytime sleep for students

Ask any parents if daytime sleep is good for your child. The answer will be unequivocal – yes. Daytime sleep improves mood, restores the child’s energy, improves his academic performance. Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California (USA) conducted a study that fully confirmed such allegations of parents.

It showed that school-age children who sleep 30-60 minutes in the afternoon are happier, better able to control themselves and have fewer problems with behavior. These children also have a higher level of IQ and higher school performance.

The study involved more than 3,000 children aged 10-12 years – students in grades 4-6. As a result, the relationship between daytime sleep and a sense of happiness, self-control and perseverance was revealed. One of the initiators of the study, neuroscientist Adrian Rein, said: “It has been found that children who sleep during the day experience fewer problems with behavior and have a higher level of IQ. The latter was especially evident in sixth graders. Particularly strong is the effect of daytime sleep on the school performance of children. ” Continue reading

How to increase a child’s school performance

When a child goes to school, parents try their best to help him in his studies and contribute to his academic performance. However, often they do not know how to do this. This causes them stress and anxiety.

It would seem that both parents and teachers make a lot of efforts in order to help the child learn successfully. Why, as a result, do students still experience learning difficulties, and parents feel disappointment and anxiety?

Often the problem is that parents incorrectly determine their role in this process. While teachers clearly know what pedagogical methods need to be applied in certain situations, parents often simply do not know what to do.

Many teachers will agree that it is easier for them to work with children who are ready for school. This fact seems obvious, but there are a few nuances that parents sometimes misunderstand. Continue reading
