How to build sensible obedience through an initiative

In this article, we summarize the research conducted by us, teachers at the Escalibur Camp camps. For several years now, we have been changing shifts in our children’s camps. One of the key questions that is important when communicating and working with children is how to make them interested in doing something. How can parents and educators create interest and involvement in a child? This is what we, teachers, have come to on the basis of experience gained over almost a dozen shifts.

As you probably already guessed, this article will discuss the differences between such concepts of raising a child as obedience and initiative.

Mistress-Self, Mistress-Person: Psychological exercise for Lovers

Gaseous people

In nature, a substance exists in three states: in solid, liquid, and in gaseous. (There is still plasma, but to present this in the logic of my metaphor is already higher than my strength).

And in psychology there is such a metaphor that people also come in three types: solid, liquid and … gaseous. I’ll explain now.

Just imagine a solid. Supposedly they brought him into the room. Where they put it (put it), there it lies (stands). Doesn’t bother anyone.

But the substance is liquid. He needs special conditions – a tank, a cup. Throw this cup over – and your substance spreads across the floor, and you collect it with rags, and the parquet is gone. But if there is a Continue reading
