How books teach children to take someone else’s point of view

Helping a child get in touch with their feelings and those of others can be a challenge for parents and teachers. When a child behaves unfriendly, parents or a teacher may ask: “How would you feel if you would do the same?” They ask similar questions in this form, and not, for example: “How do you think he felt in this situation? ”because they know that a child at this age cannot yet understand someone else’s point of view. It is easier for him to understand his feelings than the feelings of another person. Nevertheless, the ability to accept someone else’s point of view is an important skill necessary for the social development of the child.

The best way to help your child develop this skill is to often talk about the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of the people that the child faces in everyday life, as well as the characters in the books you read together and the movies you watch with him.

Life is not like a television show, so the topic of feelings is rarely addressed in everyday conversations with a child. Discussing books in this regard gives parents and children much more opportunities. Continue reading

What should parents not do with teens?

The life of a teenager is similar to a roller coaster: new life events lead either to emotional descents, or to ascents. If, when raising a teenager, the parents are too friendly or too strict, this can accustom the child to improper behavior. In the end, he may begin to make the wrong life decisions. Parents have a difficult task – to create a balance between good behavior and the difficulties of adolescence that accompany the maturation of their child.

Of course, you wish your child only happiness. But you must also understand that now the child must learn to cope with life’s difficulties on his own. However, this does not mean that you need to let him get out of control. Therefore, in striving to become ideal parents, we often make mistakes that can adversely affect our relationships with children.

Consider a few things to avoid when dealing with a teenager. Continue reading
