How to plan your day for a preschooler?

When the child is still small, we parents plan everything for him. We set tasks for him, suggest the steps to be taken, give instructions on how to do it right, control the process.

This process can be outlined on paper in the form of a plan. If the child has not yet reached school age, then you can draw a plan, or make a fun application so that the kid understands what is required of him. Younger students partially cope with this task themselves, but to a greater extent need the help of their parents.

Why should a child instill a planning skill when everything is clear and understandable that the day is planned in advance? He attends kindergarten or school every day. Mom leads him to preparatory Continue reading

When we learned that Mom was publishing a book, we decided that it was for us, her children, to write a preface about how it feels when your mother is “Madame WOJ”.

In every fate there are black and white stripes, ups and downs, and a person’s ability to adapt Continue reading

How to wean a child to cry for no reason

I have been working at school with children of primary school age for more than 20 years. I have accumulated many different school stories about difficulties in raising children and ways to overcome these difficulties, which may be useful to parents, teachers, and psychologists.
I want to share one such story. She happened to a girl, let her name be Tanya, like the girl from the children’s poem Agnia Barto, who wept loudly.
Tanya came to school armed with 1000 and another 1 way of manipulation. Therefore, she did not develop friendly relations with classmates and with me. Why everyone suffered: I, and the children, and Tanya herself. Mom came to school and asked what was wrong, why the children did not want to be friends …
To make my life easier, I began to teach Tanya a little bit of rationalization and constructive Continue reading
