Parenting a girl

How to raise a girl? The question is important and not simple. In the upbringing of the girl there are two lines: the general line and the special line. The general line does not distinguish whether you are raising a boy or a girl: in any case, there are things in common, namely the upbringing of a healthy and developed child, a harmonious and thinking person. But this article is about a special line in education, namely, what special needs to be known and taken intoaccount when raising a girl as a future woman, as a future wife and mother. If this is important to you, I invite you to think about it together.Health and Physical Development

The child does not want to get up in the morning

Women practice only persuasion and, to the last, avoid formulating a clear and precise requirement. Even if she dictate the text of the demand, only unhappy eyes can be seen in response, followed by a refusal: “No, I can’t say that!” Once, in the company of young mothers, I asked to play a situation when my daughter did not get up in the morning, and specifically asked to speak with her harder, demanding … Here is a recording of a conversation where one mother played her daughter and the other raised her:- How hard it is to wake up in the morning, how hard it is!

– Rise!
– Very cool. I’ll hide again and then get up. Continue reading

Is it possible to raise children without resorting to punishment?

Is it possible to raise children without resorting to punishment? Of course, it is possible, but this path is difficult, requiring experience, strength and endurance. It is definitely impossible to rely on one unconditional love here. According to observations, good parents punish the child seriously only once or twice in life, somewhere at the age of three to four years, when the child tries the parents for strength. If this battle is won, then a good life and mutual understanding are again established, only
occasionally alternating rather with symbolic punishments. Once parents use the warning “One! Two! Three!”, Once a timeout without warning, sometimes they have to deprive something for the time of childish mischief – but all these educational measures live somewhere on the periphery of the relationship between parents and children, and in the center there is another: lively and warm communication, discussion of common topics, help with studies, joint leisure, sports … Continue reading
