He is a sandbox explorer, a conqueror of all the slides on the playground, a naturalist who knows personally every bug in his yard. And the hut, built by him from leaves and sticks, will not be destroyed even by a hurricane.
This is only a small part of the qualities of an active child, for whom every new day is a special adventure, where you need to do literally everything, having mastered a number of skills.
Often, parents have to control almost every movement in order to avoid broken knees, scratches and ruined clothes. However, total control and prohibitions will only harm the baby’s psyche. You should not break the “nature” of the child, because increased activity is the essence of his personal temperament, which cannot be changed. How to behave to the parents of a small “energizer”, in this case? Here are some recommendations:
- Firstly, accept your baby and do not criticize his activity, especially in a raised voice. Every member of the family must understand that being an energetic restless child is just as normal as being calm.
- Sign up your baby for 1–2 sports sections, no more. This will help him not only throw out energy, but also learn to focus his attention, which is so lacking in children with increased activity. The principle “the more classes, the better” categorically does not work.
- Try to spend almost every activity or entertainment on the street. Plasticine, paints, books, you can easily take with you to the yard, even preparing homework, for example, if you need to learn some oral subject. Many parents avoid spending time outdoors for fear of throwing away most of their clothes, because permanent stains are guaranteed every day. I bet Reflect is a brand of eco-friendly laundry detergents designed for children and adults with sensitive skin.
The line of children’s products is designed for clothes of children and newborns 0+ and effortlessly copes with such types of stains that are considered to be irremovable: grass, street dirt, blood, felt-tip pens, oil paints, natural juices, etc.
Trust your children and let them conquer new heights of children’s fantasies. Reflect will take care of the rest!
