The birth of a child is the greatest miracle of this world. There’s nothing better than carrying the baby in your arms. Gradually, the feeling of joy and peace are replaced by inner concern. You start thinking about the present and the future of your children. Every parent dreams to bring up a healthy, intelligent and kind child. However, achieving that requires parents to take active participation in the process of their child’s development. Parents have to provide all necessary equipment and help children to be confident in achieving their dreams. You should be patient and reserved because it’s extremely difficult to start from the point zero.
The outlook of a child directly depends on the family environment they grow up in. Children are very vulnerable and sensitive creatures. They have strong emotional connection with their parents. It’s very good when at least one parent is an optimist by nature. Optimism will help the child to prevent the problem of negative thinking and instill confidence that everything will be okay.
The task of good caring parents is not only to bring up the child, but impart their knowledge and skills to them. Parents should also teach them to make use of this wisdom in everyday life. There’s a great variety of ways to create a wonderful atmosphere inside your family and give your child an opportunity to elicit its potential. I know that anything is possible in life, but do your best not to project your family scandals and problems on your children, because excessive negativity can exert big negative influence on the child’s immature psyche. Hopefully, this article will direct you to bring up smart kids and make their childhood the best and the happiest period of their life.
1. Fairy tales and parables
Fairy tales are an essential part of the child’s personal development. Psychologists prove that fairy tales help children comprehend the reality. Fairy tales and parables give us an opportunity to explain the child what is good and what is bad. They’re full of positive and negative characters, which do either good or bad deeds. To put it differently, fairy tale is the reflection of real life, communications and relationships between people. I remember my childhood with a pleasant feeling in my heart. I loved listening to fairy tales. When I listened to them, I imagined the characters, their feelings and emotions. My mom wanted to develop my imagination skills.
From time to time, it’s desirable to read parables together with kids. This morally edifying activity can teach children to be kind-hearted and law abiding people in the future and foster the best moral values in them.
