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. Reading books creates great opportunities for discussing the feelings of characters, because in children’s books, interactions between people and their feelings very often come to the fore.

How to teach a child good manners

Today, one can often hear phrases: “Modern children are ill-mannered”, “In our time, we knew how to behave,” “Children lack good manners,” etc. However, good manners do not appear on their own. Parents should purposefully develop them in children and show a good example of such behavior. Raising children as we want to see them is our task and our responsibility.

The time and effort that parents put into instilling good manners in their child pays off. As soon as the child learns good manners, he will remember them for life, and the atmosphere in the family will become much more pleasant. Good manners help people make contact with others, get a job, and generally be more successful in life. The culture of relationships between people once turned a primitive society into a civilized one. In families where everyone has good manners, people not only create a good impression in the eyes of others, but can also interact positively with each other and deal with intra-family conflicts. And this is a direct result of good manners. Continue reading
