Kids learn from the surroundings. Kids of age around 3, where most of the time they spend at home, learn most of the things from parents. So as a parent, we need to look at how we talk to our kids. Threats and bribes teach them fear and greed. Nagging, lecturing, or yelling will teach the child its ok to yell when they want to. And for sure, the child will not listen whenever we shout. We need to be calm in every situation, exactly the same way how we expect our child to be. We need to show all the good manners in our day to day activities, then only they will learn.
We should develop good eating habits in kids from beginning. As we all know healthy family is a happy family. Try to use more of fresh leafy vegetables, fruits, milk and milk products which increase natural immunity in the body to fight against diseases.
Books make great companions of a man. Reading books is a very good hobby a person can have. Preschoolers learn skills like recognizing numbers and letters, rhyming and wordplay when parents spend time reading to their kids. That way we could build interest in books in our kids.
The key features to be developed in kids to be a successful human being in future. We should make them understand how much pleasure we get from sharing with others what we have. Listening to other’s words, caring for others feelings are very important characters one should have.
At this age preschooler’s loved words are “Why”,”How” and “What”. The answers to these questions need to be short, sweet and direct. In school they would obviously learn the science behind it later. Now the answers should be such that, they should get more curious and satisfied with the answers. Raise a kid with a big Heart : Raising a grateful kid in this greedy world is not simple. We will never be able to give our kids every little thing they want, but we can teach them to appreciate what they have. We can teach them how to share, how to care for others and how to be honest. Keeping them Active and Creative: In this competitive world every child need to be very active and alert at every moment. W should include plenty of active time in each and every day. Television is not an active time so keep it to a minimum. Get involved in creative play with kids. If some thing is not coming the way expected, it could lead to mini-meltdowns, which could derail the process. Make sure to join in any creative projects, and show your child your own effort. We should show there are lots of different ways to achieve our goal.
While 3- and 4-year-olds still need plenty of parental help, our preschool experts agree that kids are typically able to do more than many of us think. Here’s how you can encourage them:
If a preschooler is outside running jumping and playing on a daily basis, then when he is nine and ten and older, he will feel the need to go out and move. And physical activity is must to stay fit and healthy. Activities for young preschooler can be like Pedaling a tricycle, Kicking or Catching the soft ball. Just play and run around with friends.
Kids need to get adequate amount of sleep every day to be healthy and active. Sleep could lead to cranky behaviour They have fun and would enjoy more, function better and be cooperative with the correct amount of sleep.
Clear and consistent rules need to be followed in the family. Every one hates conflicts, but if we as parents don’t stick to the rules and consequences we set up, our kids are not likely to either. It looks sad when we refuse to buy our kid another doll when she is asking for it. Instead of firmly standing, we could just console the child saying “I understand your feelings and that u really want that doll, you will be very disappointed if you don’t get that doll, but think about how many dolls already you have at home and whether its already enough” its absolutely fine to stick to our rules and don’t buy her that doll, but the way we express it makes the difference. By showing her empathy and understanding, she is likely to feel better even though she did not get what she wanted, some times a touch of empathy and understanding is all that preschoolers need.
