The education of a child is not a long quiet river. The first months and the first years are of particular importance. While a good education during this period does not guarantee that everything will be fine in the teenage years, a bad one inevitably does. For this reason, the right reflexes should be taken immediately.
Paying attention to your child
As parents, your role is to provide your child with what they need while at the same time shaping a human being who will be a “good” person when they grow up.
To complete the first phase, you must continually empathize with your baby and listen. So, learn to know when he’s in pain, when he’s sad, when he’s happy, when he’s lying, etc.
All of these observations are made by interacting with him, whether it is when he is sitting in his chair to eat or when he is playing. Good parents know their child.
Respect for parents and others
From one year, a child likes to test to find the limits. He refuses to do what you want, doesn’t listen to you, and tries to override your prohibitions. This period is very important, because if you give up your authority in front of a small child, imagine what will happen next when he has acquired a stronger personality.
There are rules that should not be waived such as respecting parents’ requests, not breaking equipment, not being violent, not having everything you want …
Openness to others
A child should not evolve in a compartmentalized environment. Lonely and sedentary mothers, more focused by their series than by the sociability of their child, have very bad reflexes.
To flourish, a little one needs sharing. He must get to know other children his age and see other adults. If he does not do this, he may quickly fear the unknown, which will make entering school particularly difficult.
If you don’t have family or friends nearby, take your child to parks or other places where they can meet kids their age.
The first learnings
If a child does not return to school until around three years old, the first learning occurs earlier. This is the case with motor skills. It is important to ensure that your child masters as early as possible gestures such as holding an object or putting it down, understanding the different shapes, etc.
This is possible if he has suitable toys at his disposal, but one must not fall into the trap of stereotypical toys. Play with him when you feel like it, but don’t mince his work. His instinctive research to understand how a game works does him a lot of good.
Don’t force your little one to play with a particular prop and let them choose what they like. It is by manipulating the objects that he prefers that he will make the most progress.
