Principii sanatoase pentru cresterea copiilor

  1. Fa-i sa se simta bine. Alaturi de tine e necesar sa fie un timp de invatare si nu un timp de critica constant.
  2. Disciplina inseamna a-i invata ceea ce e bine pentru ei sa faca in nenumaratele situatii oferite de viata. Implica fermitate si ton apasat, si niciodata „varsare de mervi urland deasupra copiilor”.
  3. inainte sa ii certam despre cea ce sa faca si ce nu, este vital sa le explicam ceea ce ne asteptam de la ei in acele situatii cu calm. Sau daca se intampla in timp real sa avem rabdare sa le explicam data viitoare ma astep sa procedezi asa, pentru ca e cel  mai bine pentru tine.
  4. Lipsa de mancare, apa si somn au impact mult mai mare decat credem la orice varsta a copiilor. Iar blocajul pe un subiect banal insotit de planset, urlete si mare suparare, are de obicei in spate o nevoie de baza neimplinita (masa anterioara insuficienta sau mare diferenta intre mese, somn amanat sau sarit si nevoia de a bea apa). Din pacate daca noi nu ii invatam de mici sa aiba grija de nevoile lor, copii nu vor stii ca le e sete, vor simti doar incomfort.
  5. Ce facem noi in raport cu lumea ei copiaza. Saluti cu drag cei pe care ii intalnesti  si copilul tau o va face, daca il incurajezi si uneori chiar daca nu faci nimic.
  6. Ceea ce facem noi fata de ei, ii invata sa se poarte cu ei, cu noi si cu lumea din jurul lor. Ii invatam sa se linisteasca, noi fiind linistiti si alinandu-i si ei o vor face pentru ei, insisi.
  7. A invata copilul sa doarma limistit, adica sa il linistiti pentru a invata el singur sa se linisteasca este un mare plus de incredere, de cat mai devreme in varsta lui. Linistea inspirata prin tonalitati joase, prin exemplu de liniste si calm in actiunile parintilor face somnul o placere si in perioadele dificile de somn.

Cum sa povestiti impreuna

Intalnesc adesea mamici care vor de la copii lor imposibilul.

Asa cum si in viata personala este necesar sa ne clarificam asteptarile, pentru a nu fi dezamagiti sau a ne certa constant cu ceilalti, asa si cand vine vorba despre copii este necesar sa urmam pasii corecti:

1. Context.

2. Actiunea propriu-zisa

3. De ce a considera important sa vorbeasca despre subiect.

Conversatie placuta!

Educatie lingvistica

Ajuta-ti copilul sa isi dezvolte vocabulatul si abilitatile de comunicare, povestind ceea ce s-a intamplat la gradinita in acea zi.

Urmeaza modelul:

1. Context.

2. Actiune, ce s a intamplat?

3. De ce a fost importamtant pentru el sa povesteasca.

Find out the real reason

Tookit for communication:

Mum towards the crying baby/child.

Why are you feeling upset (or any other way). Talk to me.

Then shut up and listen carefully.

Understanding your child’s feelings

When your child gets frustrated, angry, or sad, tell your child you understand. Say “I can see you’re upset.”. Sometimes that’s all it takes to make your child feel better or calmer. Acknowledging feelings doesn’t mean you are “giving in” or approving of the behavior. It helps identify the emotion.

Whining:Some children whine when they want something, others whine when they are tired, hungry, or stressed. Here are some things you can do:
When your child starts to complain and whine • because something is wanted that can’t be had, give a hug and say you understand the feelings of sadness or anger. Tell the child, “When you whine, no one wants to listen.”. Suggest or show ways of talking that will be taken more seriously. You may need to repeat this more than once. If the whining continues, stay calm and leave • the scene. It is important to not give in to whining, • pouting, tantrums, hitting, or other negative behaviors. If children get what they want when they behave this way, they will continue to behave negatively.

Bedtime Battles and Routines

Sleep problems

It is a learned behavior.

Most of our child behavior is learned, so is the sleeping routine. your child falls asleep in certain way because you have taught him to do so.

You may have allowed you child to fall asleep in front of the television or letting him come into your bed during the night. your child will have to un-learn his old ways of getting to sleep, and change it to new healthy ways, which are constructive for your child, yourself and the relationship with your partner. Children must re-learn new effective and easy way to get to sleep by himself.


If you are trying a new bedtime routine for the first time, you can expect it won’t work perfectly until the habits are firmly set.

Your child may keep coming out of the room. Be firm and gently lead your child back to bed. You may need to do this several times.
Most children go through a stage where they are  afraid of the dark. Understand that your child’s fear is real, provide comfort, and find ways to overcome it.
Use a night light or small lamp, or leave a light on in the hallway.
Some children need more time to fall asleep. Allow your child to look at a book, or talk to stuffed animals.
Your child needs to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. This may be different for every child. Try to find ways to help your child relax. Have your child breath slowly, sing a quiet song, or hold a stuffed animal.
Sometimes shortening the afternoon nap or making sure a child doesn’t nap in the late afternoon will help your child to be ready for sleep at bedtime.

Parent TIP: Helping in the kitchen

Your preschool child is at a good age to start helping in the kitchen. Let your child help plan and fix meals. Preschoolers love to stir and mix things in a bowl. They can help clean and set the table (for example, place napkins and plastic cups on the table). Help your children learn to choose from a variety of healthy foods. They will learn a lot, and feel their choices are important.

Power Struggles

Offer healthy and allowed choices: Anger and frustration are often a parent’s first response when a child refuses to do something. When you get angry, so will your child. First, ask yourself if it’s an important struggle. If it’s not, then let it go your child’s way. If it is important, walk away until your child calms down. Then, proceed with your request. If your child argues, walk away again. Make it clear that there is not a choice and you will have to give a consequence if your child doesn’t change the behavior. To avoid power struggles in the first place, offer your child a choice. At bath time, rather than ask, “Are you ready for your bath?,” say, “Its bath time. Do you want bubbles or plain water?”.

Be specific: Use simple words when you talk to your child. Be direct and specific about what you want done. Instead of saying, “Clean up this mess.,” say,  “I want you to pick up your blocks and put them  in the toy box.”.

Toddlers as cavemen :)

Toddlers, like cavemen, are often stubborn, opinionated beings who don’t say please and thank you, hate to wait in line, rub their runny noses on their sleeve (or yours), pee anywhere they want, grunt, spit and even bite when upset. It’s a comical image, but this revolutionary concept is no joke. It is absolutely central to understanding your child’s needs and your job as a parent.
