*SIX WAYS TO RAISE WELL-ROUNDED CHILD
Before moving on with the seven root key elements, let me tell you one thing. Please do remember that every child is special and very very special in their own way. Every child has unique power hidden within them and that’s a blessing. Every child is talented but that hidden talent must be brought out and understood by the parents and make sure you support them even though you are not capable enough of it. Have a patient heart to understand the child’s needs.
Root element ONE:
Understand the ages and stages of a child’s development phases.
Firstly, be prepared when you have thought to have a child in your life ie; Prenatal. Without physical and mental preparation, please do not have a dream of having a baby. It screws up your life. Prenatal is a beautiful phase of life and a precious time of excitement, preparation for parenthood, and keep yourself prepared with the realities of parenthood.
Secondly, the baby of 0 to 1 year is the crucial stage of every parent to understand the wholesome of activities of the new toddler which makes both the parents brainstorm for some moments to think over. Here, in this stage, the baby gives to bundle of information like-how it has to treat, talked like, and comforted.
Thirdly, Toddler of 1 to 3 years this is one of the vital stages were; it is a necessity to care for the child in a very well manner because in this stage the child undergoes emotional and social changes. In this stage, they have a slow motor development.
Forth, pre-school 3 to 5 years this is the stage of the child’s growth where they learn how to play, how to talk, how to behave, jump, and walk properly. In this age group, parents must explain to your child about the strict rules which they need to follow. So, they follow it for the whole lifetime.
Fifth, Grade-school 5 to 12 years-here build the child to overcome phobia and find the inner confidence to perform miracles and achievements and stand with your child as a pillar. If being a parent you fail to do it,then-stop expecting achievements from your child. Generally, the children under this age group undergo lots of development changes and start seeking the academics and the social world. Therefore, they undergo numerous changes emotionally and start shaping themselves in that adaptive fashion. In this time they start detaching slowly from their parents. But, it is a necessary role for parents to keep an eye on them and never make them feel anything less.
Sixth, Teen 12 to 18 years-It is a true challenging stage for parents. This is the age of closeness, joy, pride, laughter, and memories. In this stage, the parenthood is put on the bonfire to have a test. Make sure, let anything come on your way, you never get aggressive on your child and show your hand on them. It is absolutely wrong if you think of it, and you need to control your emotions. In turn, treat your teens as your best friend so that the bond between you and them will remain the same for a lifetime and even they feel easy with you and start sharing you their secrets. So that later you can mend them in a proper way by your fruitful words.
Seventh, Young Adult 18 to 21 years-they start building up their social support and firm. Here, they understand and attain the “true mark of maturity” towards life. Do not leave your support being a parent at any stage of life.
Root element TWO :
Encourage special skills.
Every child has unique gifts and talents. These special attributes but there are plenty of children who shine after the final bell has rung for the day. Activities like mommy-and-me music or karate lessons can open their minds, but your wallet doesn't need to be involved. “Do not underestimate the power of unstructured play, Playing catch in the yard, dancing in the living room, and chasing after lightning bugs provide opportunities for intellectual, physical, and personal development. Finding a hobby or two for yourself. “Allowing your child to see you trying something new may inspire her to do the same.” Never make your child feel low about his own talents. Encourage them so that they can feel happy and energized to fulfill their dreams.
Root element THREE :
Applaud and Praise.
Research conducted by Carol Dweck, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and a leading researcher in the field of achievement and success, discovered that a person’s mindset can influence behavior. When it comes to parenting, she suggests praising your child for his hard work instead of labeling him as “smart” or “talented.” People with a fixed mind-set are usually reluctant to take on challenges because they believe their achievements come from innate abilities. Those with a growth mind-set are usually more willing to face challenges with hard work because they believe in always learning new skills. “Above all, keep in mind that the grade is not what motivates a top student to succeed—it’s his inner drive for learning”.
Root element FOUR :
Respect different styles of learning.
Just because you need complete silence while typing an e-mail or balancing your checkbook doesn’t mean your child needs a noise-free environment when doing his homework Harvard researcher Howard Gardner established eight kinds of intelligence, or ways kids learn best, some that include musical, logical-mathematical, linguistic, and interpersonal traits. The trick is to pay attention to how your child learns best so you can identify her specific learning style. For example, if your school-age child is visual, consider using flashcards when she’s trying to memorize multiplication tables. If your child falls into the interpersonal intelligence category (that is, he has people smarts), help him improve his vocabulary by connecting descriptive words to people like friends, relatives, and historical figures.
Root element FIVE:
Establishing a bedtime—and keeping to it every single night—can be highly effective, but turning off the computer and TV at least 30 minutes beforehand. If your child has access to a cell phone, taking it before bedtime because “62 percent of kids admit they use it after the lights go out — and their parents are clueless!” In 2005 researchers at Tel Aviv University found that missing just one hour of sleep can be enough to reduce a child’s cognitive abilities by almost two years the following day. Borba says that a sixth-grader who loses precious zzz’s the night before a big test could end up performing at a fourth- grade level.
Root element SIXTH:
Doll with endless hugs.
Giving your child a number of hugs throughout the day will help ease any tension she may be feeling. “There’s nothing like the human touch to give a child a sense of security,”. Studies of neglected children have shown that kids who don’t receive affection can suffer from chronic stress, which can disturb the parts of the brain involved in focusing, learning, and memory. A study in the American Journal of Public Health, published in 2005, reports that touching another person gently has the power to alleviate symptoms—emotional, behavioral, and physical—related to stress. Not only will hugging your little one improve her ability to concentrate, but it will also have benefits for you (and make you feel like a million bucks).
