Before school What to teach your tiny tot at home

I come across extremely educative blogs by my fellow parents, which throw light on various issues related to food and nutrition for little ones. In my previous blog I had written about how important it is for both the parents to contribute towards house hold chores and child rearing duties.

Today I would like to share a few tips on the importance of creating a good environment within our homes for the overall development of our children -

 

Happy parents, happy home

Parents must always show each other mutual respect. Parents should cautiously watch their language and behaviour towards each other and towards the child, because kids tend to imitate their parents – remember parents are children’s first teachers. Abusive language and disrespectful behaviour can influence their tender minds in a negative way.

Quality family time

It is important for families to spend time together. No matter how busy you might be, you should try and set aside some time every day to play and interact with your kids. They are more important than anyone else in our lives!

A calm, happy home

You should try and maintain a cheerful environment at home. In spite of our stressful lifestyle we should try to keep the environment at home as peaceful and jolly as possible for the positive mental development of our children.

Meal times and bedtime

Making it a habit to eat at least one meal together, which is usually dinner in most families, is a very good opportunity for interaction. Talk about each other’s day, share anecdotes, etc. Television, stressful topics, or family issues should be avoided, and positive topics discussed while enjoying meals together.

Bedtime storytelling and reading can contribute positively towards your child’s mental growth.  Spare 30 minutes after dinner and read to your child in bed. You could also make up stories together, or narrate your own childhood experiences!

These small tips can be quite effective in encouraging positive, holistic development in children from early childhood, since it is said that home is the first school for children.

Mealtime and bedtime interaction is very important and useful. During bedtime i recite gyatri mantra, national anthem and other rhymes and she happily learned everything. i made a routine of puja after bath and performes everything with me happily.
