Discussion of games, toys, techniques, devoted several posts, even attached. But there is no discussion of computer games.
The son of a few months playing at the computer. Initially, the games were held my rigid censorship, then it was an omission, when it played in everything, himself, now, again, censorship is installed.
I thought, and this was confirmed by later observations, some games do more good than harm, of course, on the precondition that the computer is not a substitute for everyday leisure, festivals, games with their parents.
In my opinion, a computer game is a wonderful addition to our life (at home) when the child has the urge to act . but there is no opportunity to repeat the activity of the parent (e.g., mother sews on the sewing machine). The parent has no time clock to take the child with interesting games and tasks that call for perseverance, and interesting, for self-employment to the child of early age – very few (I almost never find them).
I tried to make a rough selection criteria games.
1. The complete absence of “nervousness” – all sorts of shouts, screams, the inadequate response of the characters Continue reading
Meanie-beef, pickles, lying on the floor, no one eats. This teaser, even some 20-40-60 years ago, firmly attached to each child, which is “clamped” toy, the solution of homework or a delicious sandwich. “Are you greedy?” – contemptuous curve and we put in these words all the hostility, which was capable of our little soul. No wonder that today, seeing the greed of their children, we immediately inwardly flinch: what to do? how to wean the child to be greedy? how to teach your child to share? And still do not realize that waving his hand to the greed of a child, we deprive it of the normal base for future development and formation.
• Why children are greedy? What is the nature of the excessive greed of a child?
• Why is it important to teach the child not to be greedy, to be able to share with other toys, food, items?
• What to do if there is greed in the child? How to teach your child to share?
We grew up in a society where greed is considered a bad trait. To share with others, even the last, to give the last shirt are values that are deeply sitting in the us at the mental level. And although we all grew up, and each became a separate adult, who earns money and spends exclusively in their favor, seeing greed, especially naked, how does it happen in young Continue reading
I was recently amazed one three year old little girl: when I turned on the computer and said that we should wait it in the tone of a connoisseur said: «Loaded». I asked my mother where the child knows that the machine should boot. What your mother said to me, what about the fact the child was already six months as you know: every day she watches cartoons.
On this occasion, I have thought of a sad thought. Increasingly friends of children are not their peers, and digital gadgets: computers, game consoles. We give children, not thinking, and whether a child’s brain to explore the virtual space?
Children often receive as a gift than books, and electronic “toys”. They don’t draw in albums pencils, brushes, and drag the mouse cursor on the monitor screen. Kids get acquainted with flowers and geometric shapes for special educational programs. Alas, all the signs of the times. At first glance it seems that not anything wrong with what the child learns, and along with computer literacy is taught. Only here more often comes to mind the thought: but is it good for the child? Almost all know that sitting too long at the computer is harmful to vision. But it’s not the only trouble that Continue reading
