Preschoolers: Developing Independence

I began to accustom my daughter to independent actions quite early. From primitive cooking yourself breakfast or dinner. If she said that she wanted to eat, then sometimes I answered her: “If you want, eat! Food in the refrigerator. ” When the daughter was still small, she herself went to the kitchen, took out ready-made food from the refrigerator, warmed up and ate. Of course, everything is under my supervision, but on my own. And when she became older, she began to cook herself.

– Mom, I really want fried potatoes.

“Yes, me too, daughter.” Fire us all, please.

Then she periodically ran in and asked what and how to do. Sometimes I went out into the kitchen to make the fire smaller so that the potatoes would not burn at all. And when her daughter cooked herself, she was absolutely proud of herself. Since then, by the way, she loves to cook. True, not just potatoes, but something like that, according to the recipe.

In the same way she accustomed her to responsibility for her things. If I saw that when she came home from school she was crawling on the floor in new jeans or lying on the couch, forgetting to change clothes, then I just told her: “Daughter, keep in mind, we’ll buy the following jeans no sooner than a year later. Tear, then you will not have jeans. ” It acted. It was already more accurate.

Somehow she came from the street in tattered jeans: unsuccessfully rolled down the hill. I just had to say: “Do you remember our agreement?”, As she immediately reported that she did not need new jeans, that she understood everything and would try to sew these. Which I did. More so recklessly from the hills in new things did not ride.

Emilia Vasilyevna Goncharova, professor at the University of Practical Psychology, writes

One of my girls in the self-development program works as a governess. She works out a very interesting mini-training that solves her tasks and the tasks of her pupil. They play the situation that, as if the baby were lost (in the shopping center), the baby comes up to the man and asks him to call his nanny and explain where she is and how to find her. A nanny is nearby and all this is watching))) A man calls and …. it can be a lot of fun. Admires both the baby and her nanny, training and developing her pupil. (Here is such a chic self-PR as a great incredible mother for her children, capable of raising a Person. Who among men will refuse to become fathers of Persons?).

The baby is brave and shows wonders of creativity every day more and more. The young lady is undergoing her first acting training! Courage was more recruited not by a young lady for this experiment, but by a lady who is a little older)))

But to push the young lady into beautiful adventures is very effective. The child is ready to train 24 hours a day))) And then it’s so joyful to watch her skills! It is joyful to watch her beautiful (just high-society, worked out in front of the mirror) communication with those whom she appointed as her assistants in resolving her problems!

At first, the governess chose the candidates herself and invited her pupil to turn to them. Now they are practicing – how to choose the right (intelligent, responsive, ready to help a man) candidate for the little girl herself. Baby develops soooooo observational abilities))), psychologists can relax!
