Children are happiness. And a lot of «unwanted». I won’t have porridge, I won’t get dressed for kindergarten, and I won’t go to sleep either. Patience and Smart Bear, a toy designed with psychologists, will help you negotiate with a little person without unnecessary nerves.
I do not want to sleep!
Is the baby spinning again, acting up and determined not to close his eyes at all? Most likely, the matter is in the banal absence of a regime.
Children love to follow a routine. It’s hard to believe when you hear “I won’t sleep!” Two hundred and third time, but predictability gives a sense of security. At preschool age, it is difficult to control rest and activity on your own: the nervous system is not yet able to cope with such a volume of new information. Therefore, it is important not only to “pour out” your clock, but also to go to bed on time.
It will be easier to create a daily routine that is comfortable for you and your child with Smart Bear. It helps to wake up and wash, do exercises, wash hands and sit down at the table, get ready for kindergarten, get ready for bed and much more. All task games can be started at the right time, like an alarm clock. Make your own schedule and Mishka will help the kid to follow it every day.
Great, the baby is used to the regimen, but it’s still hard to fall asleep. Then pay attention to the rituals. They are? Are they too short? The child cannot by force of will break away from the game and go to bed, just because it’s time. We need a routine procedure: pulling on pajamas, talking, kissing. And of course a fairy tale — you can trust Mishka — he knows many stories and tells them in the voice of a professional actor.
I don’t want to eat!
The child refuses to sit at the table when he is simply not hungry. The case is back in order. The body gets used to eating at a certain time. When the routine is normal, the baby has time to get hungry «according to the plan.» In the garden they go to the plates at the same time, each with everyone. At home, the Smart Bear will play the role of the company: he will call for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Well, if the «nehochuhi» begin already at the table, the reason is obviously in the food. A child is not obliged to like oatmeal or broccoli, but he should not impose a menu on an adult. Invite him to act not as a cook, but as a waiter: choose a chair, plate and serving size, put the bread on his own. After so much effort, he will want to evaluate what came out.
I won’t turn off the cartoons!
Well, who would voluntarily refuse an interesting cartoon? Even we find it hard to put down the phone. And for those who are 2-4-6 years old, it is all the more difficult to let go of the gadget. Yes, yes, you agreed that the series was the last, but you didn’t warn that it would end so suddenly. Denial, anger, bargaining — a child can experience real grief before coming to terms with the loss of a source of pleasure. And that’s okay.
So that turning off the tablet does not become a terrible loss, try to make the “exit” from content consumption systematic. For example, every 10 minutes switch your baby’s attention to something real. When the time for gadgets runs out, gradually “pull” the child out of the virtual world: ask questions, ask for advice, tell them that something interesting is happening right now. Smart Bear will also help — it will interest you in playing or drawing.
I don’t want to brush my teeth!
The value of good habits is not at all obvious to a child. For him, they are a dull duty. Brushing your teeth so that you don’t get sick sometime later is a dubious motivation. Children do not associate actions now with the distant future. And scary stories about the dentist are a real intimidation that will backfire with tantrums in the dentist’s chair.
To begin with, explain the benefits so that the baby can understand and be interested in listening. For example, tell the story of a superhero toothbrush that keeps teeth clean and white and beautiful.
The second step is consistent action. At this stage, the child usually becomes bored. Connect the Smart Bear to the process, which will turn routine hygiene into an interesting quest. In addition, Mishka is always in a good mood and does not get tired of repeating the same thing over and over again. It will make it easier to form a habit.
Brushing your teeth, going to bed on time, leaving your tablet without crying are all small tasks. But when a child performs them every day himself and with pleasure, the very hours in the day that are always lacking are released from the parents.
