EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF PRE SCHOOL CHILD

Children age 3 or 4, is very much her own person. He/she distinct likes and dislikes and the personality is developing more every day. He/she getting better and using words to express how the feeling, which is is means fewer tantrums. The mood may still change drastically from one moment to next, but it’s more likely to talk about being angry or sad rather than having a meltdown.

RULED OF EMOTIONS

3 years old is beginning to understand the emotion of his/her feeling, still has very little control over them. If he finds something funny he laughs hysterically. If something makes him feel sad or angry, he burst into tears. At this age your preschooler still has developed much impulse control, if he/she feel something he likely to act on it.

4 years old may use hitting, biting or pushing as way to solve conflicts; they simply do not understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate interactions yet. A parent job is to teach children the right and wrong ways to express emotions and resolve problems with others.

5 years old, a child has made leap and bounds in her emotional development. She gotten much better and regulating her emotions and talk about her feeling easily. She has also gotten better at controlling her impulses. She patiently waits her turn and often asks first before taking something that isn’t hers. A 5 years old age much more likely to express her anger using words, rather than getting physical or throwing tantrum.

OUR PATIO

Our patio is badly needed a renovation. The patio floor tiles needed to be changed. It has stains and molds already that it looks nasty. I don’t know why it got that nasty, maybe because my friends and I hang out there a lot. It’s not that I am saying that we are very messy, though that sounds like it. Our patio is our favorite part of our house. I don’t know why.

I plan to have it renovated probably for the next couple of months, hopefully when the rainy season ends. For now I am contemplating on what kind of patio floor tiles I would get.

SECRET OF TODDLER DISCIPLINE

Toddler hood particularly vexing time for parents because this age which children start to become more independent and discover themselves as individual, yet they still have limited ability to communicate and reason.  Here are some simple toddler discipline strategies to help make life easier for both you and your child.

#1 BE CONSISTENT, order and routine give young children a safe haven from what they view as overwhelming and unpredictable world. “When there are some predictability and routine, it makes children feel much more safe and secure and they then to be much more behaved and calm because they know what to expect”.  Try to keep same schedule every day, which means having consistent nap times, mealtimes and bedtimes as well as time when your toddler is free to just run around and have fun. Consistency is also important when it comes to discipline. When you say “no hitting” the first time your child smack another child on the playground, you also need to say no hitting the second, third and fourth times your child does it.

#2 AVOID STRESSFUL SITUATIONS, by the time your children reach the toddler stage, you spent enough with them to know their triggers. The most common ones are hunger, sleepiness and quick change of venue. With little advance planning, you can avoid these potential meltdown scenarios and keep things relatively calm.

Motivating teens

In order to help my girls to succeed in school, I started at the beginning by making sure that they are utilizing tools to know what they have due and when. It sounds simple, but they’re both in High School, and they both use a planner that I check nightly, which their teachers sign off on. This helps me to know what they have due each night and what tests are coming up, and helps the girls learn personal responsibility and accountability. If the planner is not signed, they do not get to do any after-school activities that day, including friends, tv, internet etc. That way there is an immediate consequence. If assignments are missing, then more privileges go out the door for a longer time. Structure is really helpful to some teens. Homework at our house is done at the dining room table always, so there’s none of that distracted, half-homework half-tv watching. Phones go off during homework time, as well as computers unless there is school work involved.

PUNISH KIDS WHO LIE AND DISOBEY

Just like adults, children also often lie to avoid punishment, because parents have the responsibility to model good behavior and teach children from wrong, it’s important to teach children to be truthful. When the child lies, use the situation as a way to teach the behavior you desire.

Make a plan for dealing with lying, determine a punishment for lying. A child of six or seven might lose television or computer privileges for a day or two. Talk to your child about lying so he or she understands the importance of being truthful. Talk about how important it is to tell the truth even if he or she fears consequences. Promise your child that if he or she tells the truth about a mistake you will not punish the child as harshly.

Avoid creating situation which a child will want to lie, example if you know that a child disobeyed you do not ask the child if he or she disobeyed you. This will tempt the child to lie to try to avoid punishment, instead approach the situation without putting the child in the position of fighting the temptation to lie and instead deal directly with disobedience.

Explain a child why you are punishing him or her when he lies, give the punishment for lying that you already discussed with your child. Give punishment for disobeying also. Make both punishments separate and make sure you explain the distinction to your child so he or she understands you’re punishing he or her both lying and disobeying.

SPEAKERS

My brother, who is setting up our music school, is planning to get a speaker just like his musicians friend electro voice speakers. I really don’t have much knowledge about speakers what I know is it is essential. I have my speakers on my office and home and I am pretty proud of what I’ve got. I am happy of the sound outcome.

I still want to gather some outside advice and insight about this. If you would like to suggest a nice speaker for our music school feel free to comment or send an email. We need expert input about all this musical stuff.

DISCIPLINE CHILD WITHOUT FORCE

Love and mutual respect should be cornerstones of your relationship with your children. Using force to discipline your children can seriously harm the foundation of your relationship. A physical punishment can deter the development of the child self esteem and self control. Instead of implementing physical force, use positive disciplinary techniques that encourage respect and reasoning of your child.

Break past cycles of physical punishment, you’re not bound by punishment your parents employed or even you’re won past method of discipline. Work at staying calm, when the emotion is out of control you are more likely use to a force with your children. Try to understand the situation through a perspective of your child. Count one to ten before disciplining your child. Take a few moments to think about the circumstances and gather you’re though before the react to the behavior of your child.

Offer your children alternative poor behavior, instead of threatening corporal punishment to stop children from misbehaving, tell them they can participate for a desirable activity as soon as they start making better behavioral choices. Try constructive time out, tell your child that they need to take a break to think about how they can change their behavior and make different choices.

Encourage good behavior using positive rewards, display a sticker chart in your home and let your child place sticker on the chart each time they behave well. Offer stickers for particular chores, act of kindness or when you child exhibit positive attitudes, ignore attention seeking behavior, children sometimes behave poorly to garner attention.

IDENTITY THEFT AWARENESS

In this day and age we really need to protect ourselves on identity thief. We should protect ourselves (like getting an rfid) on this kind of crime at all times. Good thing there are some ways to avoid it, you can look it up on line. Identity theft is somehow being overlooked at by some people. We should be vigilant about this because identity theft is a no-joke. Some people didn’t understand the seriousness of this crime until it has happened to them.

Needless to say that prevention is better than cure. So I just hope that people in the government also address this issue and resort some actions about this.
