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. Consider how to determine your child’s type of intelligence. Continue reading
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
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
