In PART 1 and PART 2 we’ve discovered the smart methods to raise a clever kid. Parenting is a process, not just day in day out you can successfully achieve everything. In part 3 today, we will continue learning some more about the ultimate ways to help your kid grow better!
14. The best toys do not need to be pricey for your little child.
Choose toys that your child can play in more than one way and that allows him or her to have fun in different ways. Choose toys to practice the creativity of your kids, or to learn a set of skills
15. Limit your child to watch television until the age of 2.
Track the TV of your child and be selective of the shows he enjoys. See guidance on how to keep your child’s television watching healthy. If your child is to watch so much TV, he is not able to do things more important for his brain, such as playing, socializing, and reading
Play and connect with your young child through educational apps when you use a smartphone or tablet. It may influence his creation of perspectives, empathy, information, and relationships through the use of excessively interactive media. Excessive use of these machines can cause mental and health issues.
Smart video games – the best kid-friendly computer games teach letters, mathematics, music, communication, and many others to your child. It also improves the control of his eyes and trains him for the technologies of tomorrow.
More specifically, during the playing, he knows these. The easiest way to educate your child is to practice and play simultaneously.
16. Allow your child to take a risk and fail
Children who take a risk and have a lack of pain like falling off a bike or failing their skills in competition may develop a low degree of self-esteem and phobia. Also, don’t save your kid too soon
17. Feed your kid right
It is important to give your kid the right food to make him intelligent. You should start to give your baby the right nutrients when you are pregnant. In an older child, a diet high in protein (egg, fish, meat) increases concentration, memory, and thinking. The fuel used in thought is supplied to his mind by carbohydrates.
The greatest are those with whole grain and fruit. Processed carbs and sugar have a poor impact on treatment, concentration, and operation. The essential also are vitamins and minerals.
According to a British and Canadian study, feeding your child with tons of fatty, sugar and refined food will decrease its IQ while vitamin and nutrient-rich diet tend to increase it.
18. Make sure your child gets enough to sleep
A series of experiments indicate asleep and degree connection. Sleep problems can cause lasting problems if they last long enough.
In line with the book NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children, a lack of an hour of sleep turns the brain of the sixth grade into a fourth grade. The association between grades and the average amount of sleep is also present.
19. Praise your child for hard work, instead of being smart:
Praising the commitment of your child makes your child see himself as controlled by his success. Children praised for their intellect prefer to carry out straightforward assignments and resist obstacles that could negatively impact their self-image.
Your child must challenge himself, and so now and then encounter disappointment. Failure doesn’t mean that he hasn’t set his goal high enough, and nothing worth it can be done.
Praising intermittently such that the persistence of your child is not based purely on affection like incentives.
However, don’t praise your boy too much, or might later on make him a narcissist. Let your kid be a humble child! Kids appear to see themselves in their life as important individuals. Instead, give your child truthful and proper input, together with motivation and encouragement to develop self-esteem and security
20. Instead of pushing, providing them opportunities
In the University of Colorado, research by doctoral and undergraduate students reveals higher executive functions for children with less organized time and vice versa.
The study chief claims that the Executive Function aids children in all manner of ways in their everyday lives, from moving between multiple tasks to not crying while angry to delaying pleasure rather than being stuck doing something.
During childhood executive function forecasts important impacts, such as academic achievement, fitness, income, and violence, years and even decades.
21. Don’t put pressure on your child
Children who are depressed during their first three years appear to be stress sensitive. Your minds are hyperactive, nervous, impulsive, and often neurotic to overreact in overwhelming situations.
Stress hormones scar the brain, which shrinks the memory and emotional portion. Don’t show your child too much tension because it can be infectious
22. Be an involved parent
Studies have also shown that children who are close to their parents have fewer risks of breaking legislation, leaving school, resisting unsafe sex, sustaining stable relationships, and experiencing fewer psychiatric difficulties.
In the 2011 study published in the Canadian Journal of Behaviour Science by Concordia University, children of practiced fathers with positive kinship abilities are less likely to have behavioral difficulties and to perform well with intelligence studies.
However, certain children without interaction with their parents still perform well mentally and socially when they are absent from their parents which is made up by mothers and caregivers.
Research shows even that parents who help in their home raise daughters who chose from a wider variety of career opportunities than daughters in households with unequal distribution of jobs.
Children who readily collaborate with their friends, support people, understand their emotions, and fix issues with others are much more likely to get a full-time career and to participate in criminal activity.
Speak to your child about the way you express your feelings and emotions and how to control them. Another way to educate your kid about your feelings is to read and comment on the characters’ emotions and motives.
Tell him that taking his time to study hard would help him to have a better career in the future!
