Each child’s growth journey is only 1, once gone, there is no turning back. As parents, we need to provide the best living environment, “home” for our children. Accordingly, in the house, there are 3 places that parents need to pay special attention to, because it greatly affects the development of children.
1. The kitchen
The kitchen seems insignificant, but it is an indispensable place for every family. This is a place where the whole family can foster affection and teach children many lessons. Children will know: Since we are a family, we must eat together. Meals every day is how we show our love and care for each other.
Children who grow up in a cozy family atmosphere, always spending time having dinner together can learn to love themselves, those around them, improve their self-esteem, etc. Through the kitchen, dad Mothers not only convey love and warmth to their children, but also love food and love life.
The kitchen is a place to foster family affection.
A mother shared that she always tried her best to give her children the best, especially in terms of education. I want my daughter to win from the starting line. However, during the parent meeting, she found that some other children were able to express their opinions confidently, while her own was timid. Obviously, her daughter has a lot to share with everyone but doesn’t know how to say it.
Then another parent said to her: “Children today do not lack money or talent, but lack of reading.” Because expressiveness, comprehension is directly related to reading ability. After the parent meeting, this mother realized: “I never thought about the importance of reading, but that meeting showed me the difference between a child who can read and a child who cannot read.”
There is an old saying: If parents love their children, they must plan deeply for their children.
Many parents buy a house near famous school districts, but they don’t know that paying attention to their child’s own classroom from a young age will help them win at the starting line. Nurturing children’s passion for reading, giving them a bookcase in the classroom will help them access knowledge and cultivate good study habits.
However, in order for children to love reading, parents also need to set an example. Children are the reflection of their parents. Behind the children who love to read, there are often parents who also love to read.
If a family can build a reading atmosphere for children for a long time, it will certainly help children maintain a permanent curiosity, thirst for knowledge, enthusiasm and hope in life.
A man can’t be contacted by 9pm every night. When his friends asked, he said: “It’s time for my baby to go to bed, I have to talk to him”.
Although the man is very busy during the day, he even has to work overtime at times. But every night, I will spend time with you before you go to bed. In addition, his son is truly a “son of someone’s family”, studying well, being obedient, polite, and working hard at home.
In fact, talking to your child before bed brings a lot of positive values. Children will feel the safety and love from their parents. So what should parents say to their children? Parents can be about anything, as long as there is enough attention and always talk with an equal, relaxed attitude. Parents can ask their children questions such as:
– I encountered something special today;
– Is there something happy or unhappy today;
– Do you and your tablemate have fun together?
– Who studies best in the child’s class;
– Or parents discuss things that happened at home today, such as: Grandma is sick today, what do you think I should cook to nourish her; The refrigerator at home is broken, what should we do,…
– What do you want to do this weekend? Or watch a movie at home? Or go to the park,…
– Parents can also talk about their child’s recent academic status, see what study habits of their children need to be improved;…
Parents talk to their children before going to sleep.
Talking to children before going to bed is like a thread that connects the hearts of parents and children. As a result, parents can listen to the true inner voice of their children. The parent-child relationship will be further strengthened. At the same time, children’s expressive ability, independent thinking ability and emotional intelligence are also improved.
