Childhood is the golden period of life.At this period a child must get optimum care from parents and family .But dealing with a child’s psychology is not so easy.Childhood is the period where a child has no limit on learning .The learning capacity of a child is unpredictable.It depends on the surrounding people and environment whether it can add value to a child’s life or not.
Children need motivation too.
To build positivity in a child need motivation.But the kind of motivation is different from adult.We adult have lots of problems. Our main problem is our ego. But a child doesn’t have ego. That’s why he immitates others unconditionally. But the biggest problem rises here.He does what he observes.If a child is guided properly it can lead to greatness. But the reverse is also true.
It depends on their parents,guardians,teachers or caregivers how they introduce the world to a child. A positive approach is always needed. Because the potentiality and possibility in a child is abundant.
Some of us have a big issue with our children that they do not respect others or they are very fussy. They do not like to do their work properly.
Children may have behavioural problems in the growing stage. But sometimes adults choose the wrong way to deal with these problems. As a result they demolish them. This creates another problem.
A negatively led child may lack confidence. Whenever some are highly self-motivated and parents do not need to worry for them.All that is required of them is proper guidance to maintain their confidence.
Know the ways to motivate a child.
Today’s children are extremely energetic and fans of the fantasy world. It is a really difficult task for them to execute their vast landscape.They have an another interesting imaginary world. Where they want to fly,fight and form.They live far away from reality. It is very important for them to introduce the real world. Because in reality there is no Doraemon gadget.
1.Introduce to them the real heroes.
Let them enjoy the Fantasy world but don’t forget to introduce the real heroes to them. There are many real stories where real people created history.Encourage your child through stories of real heroes. Let them read or watch or describe those inspiring stories.
2. Listen to your child.
It is important to know what your child wants to say to you. So listen to that. Pay attention to what he said. We usually ask our children to listen to us. But we do not do this for them. As a result they stop interacting with us.They start feeling worthless. This hurts their little heart.Our attention to them uplifts their mindset.
Make sure your child communicate well with others . For that, train them to make eye contact.This will develop his self confidence.Eye contact is a non verbal communication language which helps not only young children but the adults too to express themselves confidently. Learning this skill from an early age will be helpful for a lifetime.
4.Encourage your child instead of control.
It is good to control your child to some extent but it should not be negatively affected. You should avoid to control their emotions. Give them the space to express their emotions. Try to deal with their emotions with encouraging words. Praise them on their good works. Praise their efforts not their results.Use appropiate words to encourage them. But don’t praise them lavishly.This is also harmful.
Encourage them to learn from their failure. Do not show your sympathy or anger on their failure. Train their mind to look forward with past learnings. Let them feel the disappointment. Because a little disappoinment works positively for them. The pain of a little disappointment or failure provides an opportunity to develop life skill. Look at the opportunity not the pain.
5.Physical strength for mental strength.
It is important to your child to be physically healthy to develop mental muscles.Healthy body for healthy mind. Work on your child’s physical strength. Healthy diet,regular exercise should be followed from an early age.Minimize screen time and try to engage them in other activities like outdoor games, pretend games, creative works.
Children are our future.It is our prime duty to build our future strong. Prepare them for life from a young age. There are many points to add to this, but according to me the above points are definitely helpful towards boosting the mental strength of children.
