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

Hint: Use multi-colored products. 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

Valery Panyushkin: 5 rules for parents against burnout

In a way, I’m an expert on despair. For twenty years I have been writing about seriously ill children. I am often asked what I do so as not to go crazy. Over the years, I have developed five rules against burnout.

I believe that these rules are useful to know for all parents, especially mothers. Because being a parent is an emotional job, and burnout happens sooner or later on any emotional job.

Emotional work, on the one hand, captures, gives creative strength, and on the other hand, burns out, especially if you behave incorrectly.

The first rule is to very accurately determine the goal. Say, when I write about a sick child, I do not set a goal to cure him – the doctor will treat the child. My goal is not to raise money – the fund will collect it. My goal is to tell a story about the child. That’s it, period.

With parenting the same thing. When I stay with children, I try to articulate my goals very clearly. Why am I here? To raise a happy person? – No. To grow successful? – No. I just make sure they don’t get killed. It helps a lot to save power. Continue reading
