This selection of leaflets for all cases of educational and extracurricular activities for parents. I brought these reminders from the next refresher courses in 2011.
Memo for parents
MEMORY FOR PARENTS from a child
My actions are not a deadly sin!
DO NOT spoil me, you spoil it with this. I know very well that it is not necessary to give me everything I ask. I just feel you!
DON’T be afraid to be hard with me. I prefer this approach.
DO NOT rely on force in relationships with me. This will teach me to reckon only with force.
DO NOT be inconsistent. This confuses me and makes me stress but try in all cases to keep the last word behind me.
DON’T give promises that you cannot fulfill. It undermines my faith in you!
DO NOT make me feel younger than they really are.
DO NOT do for me and for me what I am able to do myself.

When a child eats, while playing or labor.
Immediately after the child has been physically or mentally hurt. For example, fell, fought, failed, even if he himself was to blame.
When a child seeks, but cannot overcome fear, inattention and
When he seems incapable, clumsy, stupid.

Consult with him, maintain his authority. Comment on the work of the teacher express; at school, at a meeting. You can not do this in the presence of children.
- 2. Be sure to attend all classes and meetings for parents. If you cannot, inform the teacher personally or by a note through the child.
3. Every day, take an interest in educational success of the child (ask: “What did you learn new today?” Instead of the traditional one: “What grade did you get today?”). Rejoice in success, do not be annoyed because of every failure that befalls a son or daughter.
4. Regularly monitor homework assignments and provide, if you can, reasonable assistance in carrying them out. Aid and control should not be a drill, a bothersome moralizing, exhausting a child. The main thing – to excite interest in learning.

How to raise a bookworm?
The first books of a child should be colorfully decorated, then they will be interested in reading. At the same time, they should not consist of illustrations, then their meaning will be clear after a cursory review, and the desire to read will disappear.
It is better if the book has a breakdown into small chapters or it consists of small finished stories.
Adults should remember how much depends on their attitude to reading a child. Be sure to talk about what you read. Praise those, even if not everything was “smooth.”
A culture of reading should be developed. If you started, read to the end. The book must be read sequentially, without jumping from page to page and without looking at the end.
Suggest painting the picture to the most interesting passage from the book or learning it by heart.
Adults should not stop reading the child out loud. Evening hours of reading a book, when parents, being carried away by the content, read the child, this is a wonderful way of spiritual communication with him.
Children should see parents reading. Their imitative ability “will work” in such a situation for the result.
The house must have a children’s library, which is replenished periodically.
Find your favorite children’s books. Tell the child about them.
Read them together. Tell us about the role they have played in your life.
Carefully follow the program for extracurricular reading.
Get a “family reader diary”, where each family member will briefly (perhaps even in one sentence) write down his impression of what he read.
Praise your child more often for reading.
Accept the child as it is, with all its advantages and disadvantages.
It is necessary to observe the “golden mean” in fulfillment of the wishes of the child. As otherwise, a minor refusal can serve as a mental trauma for a child, or it will be difficult for him to talk about his needs.
Try not to overload the child big
the number of impressions (reading, cinema, computer, TV, the arrival of guests, etc.) in the period of recovery after suffering the disease.
Do not intimidate the child, punish, leaving one in a poorly lit room. In the form of punishment, you can make him sit quietly in a chair, deprive him of participation in the game and
Be patient, attentive, friendly. Not
deprive the child of something, and encourage, do not punish and love.
Know that a child is a person with his own problems, opportunities and shortcomings.
Play joint games with the child. This will help you to know and understand each other better and build a relationship of trust.
12 tips for parents of future first graders
Soon to school. This fall or one year later, your child will cross its threshold. In an effort to help him confidently take this step, his parents sometimes get off their feet in search of institutions and private practitioners who are preparing children for the introductory interview. And simple truth is forgotten: education can make a child intelligent, but only spiritual, reasonably organized communication with loved ones and loved ones – a family – makes him happy. It is in your power to create such an environment in the family that will not only prepare the child for successful study, but also allow him to occupy a worthy place among classmates, to feel comfortable in school.
1. Share your memories with your child more often.
about the happy moments of his past
The beginning of school life is a big test for a small person. This moment is easier experienced by children who have a warm attitude to school in advance.
Such an attitude is made up of contacts with the past experience of close people.
Look through the family photo archive with your child. This activity is extremely useful for all family members. Rotation to the best moments of the past makes a person stronger and more confident.
Your good memories of school years, funny stories from school life and stories about childhood friends will fill the soul of the child with joyful anticipation.
- Help your child master the information
which will allow him not to get lost
As a rule, children of this age to the question: “What is your mother’s name?” – They answer: “Mom.”
Make sure your child remembers your full name, phone number, home address, and parents’ names. This will help him in an unfamiliar situation.
3. Encourage your child to keep things in order.
The success of the child in school depends largely on how he knows how to organize his workplace. You can make this boring procedure more attractive. Prepare the child’s workplace in the family in advance: let him have his own desk, his own pens and pencils (you will have to sharpen pencils at first, while you, dear parents). All this is like an adult, but – the personal property of the child! And the responsibility for the order is also personal, because in adults it is.
4. Do not frighten the child with difficulties and failures at school.
Many children of this age are restless. Not everyone is brilliant reading and counting. It is very difficult to get many in the morning and quickly gather in kindergarten. In this regard, fully explain my parents desire to warn children about the upcoming troubles. “They will not take to school. “” Twos will be staked. “,” In the class laugh. “
In some cases, these measures may be successful. But long-term consequences are always deplorable.
5. Do not try to be a teacher for your child.
Strive to maintain friendships.
Some children have difficulty communicating with other children. They may become confused in the presence of unfamiliar adults.
You can help your child overcome these difficulties. Try to organize a children’s game on the playground near the house and take part in this game. Children love to play with their parents.
Suggest your child to invite his friends to his birthday party. This day will be unforgettable for him if there is a place in the program of the celebration for joint games of children and adults.
Let your child feel that he can count on your support in any situation. It is impossible to achieve this only with educational exercises with a child.
6. Teach your child how to react to failures.
Your child was the last in the game and pointedly refused to play with his friends further.
Help him cope with frustration.
Invite the children to play one more time, but change the rules of the game a little.
Let the winner be only the first, and all the rest losers.
Mark the success of each game. Encourage chronic losers with hope.
After the game, pay attention to the child on how the other players reacted to the loss. Let him feel the intrinsic value of the game, not the gain.
7. Good manners of the child – a mirror of family relations
“Thank you”, “Sorry”, “May I. »Must enter the child’s speech before school.
It is difficult to achieve this through moral teachings and sermons.
Try to exclude orders and commands from communication between family members: “So that I no longer hear this!”, “Take out the garbage”. Turn them into polite requests. The child will certainly copy your style. After all, he loves you and seeks to imitate everything.
8. Help your child gain self-confidence
The child should feel in any situation as naturally as at home.
Teach your child to be attentive to their needs, timely and naturally report them to adults.
On a walk you went somewhere to eat. Offer your child to make an order for yourself. Next time, let him make an order for the whole family.
Let him try to ask in the clinic: “Where is the toilet?” Or he himself will take a turn to a specialist.
9. Teach your child to independence in everyday life.
The more a child can do on his own, the more adults he feels.
Teach your child to undress and hang up their clothes, fasten buttons and zippers. (Remember that small fingers can only cope with large buttons and lightning.)
Tying bows on shoe laces will require special help and attention on your part. It is desirable if it is not on the eve of going out. It is better to devote a few nights to this activity.
10. Teach your child to make decisions.
The ability to make an independent choice develops a person’s self-esteem.
Check with your child about the family Sunday lunch menu.
Let him choose his own dish at the festive table and pick up clothes that match the weather. Even more difficult is the planning of family leisure activities on weekends.
Encourage your child to take into account the interests of all family members and take them into account in everyday life.
11. Strive to make useful every moment of communication with the child.
If the child helps you bake a festive cake, introduce him to the basic measures of volume and mass.
Grocery supermarkets are a very suitable place for developing attention and actively listening to a child. Ask the child to put in the basket: three packs of cookies, a pack of butter, a loaf of white bread and a loaf of black bread. State your request immediately and do not repeat any more.
A child helps you set the table. Ask him to put four deep plates on the table, put a spoon next to each plate on the right. Ask: How many spoons will you need?
The baby is getting ready for bed. Offer him to wash his hands, hang a towel on his hook, turn off the lights in the bathroom.
Passing along the street or being in the store, pay attention to the child-words-inscriptions that surround us everywhere. Explain their meaning.
- Count the trees, the steps driving past the car
12. chit the child feel and wonder
encourage his curiosity
Pay his attention to the first spring flowers and colors of the autumn forest.
Take him to the zoo and together find the biggest animal, then the tallest one.
Watch the weather and the outlines of the clouds.
Get a handwritten record of observations of the growth of a kitten.
Teach the child to feel. Openly experience with him all the events of everyday life, and his curiosity grows into the joy of learning.
Commandments for parents.
Remember that you are people too.
Give yourself a break.
Do not demand the impossible from yourself.
Do not try to do the “best”.
Think about what this may lead to.
Be generous: help your children find a common language with you.
Love each other. Try to talk about it, learn to express your love with words.
Parents with one child.
Developing a child’s abilities should not raise consciousness in him
its exclusivity. This almost always leads to frustration, dissatisfaction, conflicts with friends. And unfulfilled increased claims, defeats in disputes, sometimes in quarrels with peers painfully affect such children.
Paying attention to the only child, you need to make sure that “egoistic inclinations do not take root. Selfishness gives rise to demanding, claims to others. Some parents, blinded by love for their only child, sometimes do not notice or do not consider it necessary to notice the inadmissibility of his actions. For others, it causes protest, ill will. Children do not like those who seek to stand out. And a child who is not accustomed to a fair assessment of his actions, most of which were assessed positively by adults (even if they were not), falling into a new team cannot find its place in it for a long time, and in fact remains alone in the team.
In families where an only child grows, it is advisable to encourage and even organize their interaction with peers: invite them to visit, several families to go to the theater, go on excursions, etc. Meetings with children only in class to meet the needs of the child in communication not enough. At home, in the family, in the circle of close people, new features and qualities are revealed in it. Here he is the host host. The laws of hospitality make you be more compliant, friendly, caring.
Smile often! Even when you don’t want to. Children should not see us evil and gloomy, without a smile turned to them.
Treasure every minute spent with your child! Watch, listen, study it, “be imbued with it,” recognize it. Look at your children more often when they sleep.
Look into the eyes of the child more often and praise the child more often: “you are beautiful, well done, clever, good”.
Do not fight with children. Learn to forgive children and ask for forgiveness. First go to reconciliation.
Say the word “can” more often. In your eyes, with your help, so that all this can be, why do something on the sly and looking around, if you can be open and honest.
Sometimes (rarely) indulge your child.
Do not rush your children to grow.
Treat your child as an equal, respect his motivations – children have the right to be as they are.
Trust your child.
Do not figure out your relationship with the child.
Moral cleanliness echoes the cleanliness of the room where the baby lives.
You can order not only with the help of a stick, but also with a request and a tender look.
The most important thing: Your own behavior remains the most powerful way to influence a child – it will be an example for everything! Family to you happiness.
“To be the best and the first in everything” – this subconscious attitude is often given to the pepper. After all, around him there are usually so many adults: mom and dad, two sets of grandparents. However, if this is a child of a single mother, the expectations will not decrease at all. They can even be strengthened by the mother’s hyper-guardianship — after all, we are “together against such a dangerous world.”
The child has the conviction that it is not he who is valuable, but his success. There is no – no love of loved ones. The school only strengthens this confidence, especially if studying is easy, and as a result a complex of excellent student is formed – an extreme degree of obsessive desire to be better and more successful than others. The disciple becomes excessively punctual and anxious, does not know how to converge with his peers, his heightened sense of duty borders on neurosis.
Stop communicating with your child as an equal, love him because he is still small and yours.
Father should also slightly soften his superman image, allow himself the right to make a mistake. A child must see that dad sometimes fails and the world does not collapse because of this.
Help your child make contact with peers, hold home parties, encourage him to participate in extracurricular activities. Limit some parental control. Apparently, it is too noticeable, since your child is not accepted in companies.
Do not intimidate life, but share your hopes. Everything should be the general – and joy, and tears. Joint experiences, dreams unite and strengthen the family.
Ten tips for fathers and mothers
- one . Take the child as it is.
2. Never order out of whim. No need for solid orders.
Not to interfere in the life of a child is as dangerous as interfering incessantly.
3. Never make decisions alone. The golden rule of family life is diarchy. When father and mother contradict each other – for the child this is an entertaining sight.
4. Keep trust in who will contradict you.
5. In terms of gifts – no frills. We have forgotten how to refuse children. Failure brings more benefits, because it teaches to distinguish the necessary from the superfluous.
6. In all act by your own example. You can only achieve what you do yourself.
7. Talk about everything without fear. Speech is gold, and silence is lead.
8. Unite with yours. The family is a private republic. Everything must be done together: home crafts, washing dishes, shopping, cleaning, a choice of entertainment, travel routes.
9. Keep the door open. Sooner or later you will not keep children, teenagers, young people in the house. It is never too early to learn freedom.
10. Get out in due time! This commandment invariably brings sadness. Sooner or later, the parents will be left alone. Nothing can be done: any parental career involves this sacrifice.
(From the book of French writer Eirey Bazin “What I Believe”)
Behavior of parents with conflict children
Restrain the desire of the child to provoke quarrels with friends. It is necessary to pay attention to the unfriendly glances at each other or muttering something with resentment. Of course, all parents have moments when there is no time or no power to control children. And then “storms” most often break out.
Do not seek to end the quarrel, accusing the other child of its occurrence and protecting their own. Try to objectively understand the causes of its occurrence.
After the conflict, discuss with the child the reasons for its occurrence, determine the wrong actions of your child, which led to the conflict. Try to find other possible ways out of the conflict situation.
Do not discuss problems of his behavior with a child. He may be affirmed in the idea that conflicts are inevitable, and will continue to provoke them.
Do not always intervene in the quarrels of children. For example, when two boys did not share something during the game and began to quarrel, it is better to watch this conflict, but not to interfere in it, since children themselves will be able to find a common language, and at the same time they learn to communicate with each other. If during quarrels one of them always wins, and the other acts as a “victim”, one should interrupt such a game in order to prevent the formation of timidity in the defeated.
Parents of closed children
Expand your child’s social circle, bring him to new places and meet new people.
Emphasize the benefits and usefulness of communication, tell the child what new and interesting things you have learned, as well as what pleasure you got by talking with this or that person.
Strive to become for your child an example of an efficiently communicating person.
If you notice that, despite your efforts, the child is becoming more withdrawn and detached, consult a psychologist who will professionally help you solve this problem.
Parents of shy children
Expand the circle of acquaintances of your child, invite friends to yourself more often, take him on a visit to familiar people, expand the routes of walks, teach the child to calmly relate to new places.
Do not constantly worry about the child, strive to fully protect him from all sorts of dangers, mostly invented by you, do not try to do everything for the child, to prevent any difficulties, give him a certain measure of freedom and open actions.
Constantly strengthen self-confidence in your child.
Involve the child in the performance of various tasks related to communication, create situations in which the shy child would have to come into contact with “alien” adults.
For example: “We need to find out what this interesting book is about with wonderful pictures. Let’s ask a librarian or a vendor and ask to let us see it. ”Usually, in such a situation of“ forced ”communication, for example, at the doctor’s office, in the children’s library, at the neighbor’s house, the child is chained up to the point that he only greets the whisper , and not looking up from the mother’s hand. But, leaving, says goodbye loudly and clearly, sometimes even smiles.
Parents of restless children
Avoid extremes: you can not allow your child to do whatever he pleases, but you can not and forbid everything, clearly decide for yourself what you can and can not, and coordinate it with all family members.
With your behavior, show the child an example: restrain your emotions, because he imitates you in his behavior.
Pay enough attention to the child, even if he never feels forgotten, but at the same time explain to the child that there are times when you have other worries, you need to understand and accept this.
Remember that hysterical seizures are most often associated with desire, to attract attention, or to cause pity and sympathy. No need to indulge the child, do not need to change their requirements, it is better when the child calms down, explain to him when the child calms down, explain to him why you did this and not otherwise.
If a child lives in criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives in hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child grows up in fear, he learns to anticipate evil.
If a child grows up in pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself.
If a child grows up in ridicule, he learns to be closed.
If a child grows up in jealousy, he learns to envy.
If a child grows up with a sense of shame, he learns to be guilty.
If a child grows up in an atmosphere of support, he learns to be reliable.
If a child grows up in an environment of tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child grows up in praise, he learns to be grateful.
If a child grows up in an atmosphere of approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child grows up in sympathy, he learns to be generous.
If a child grows up in honesty and justice, he learns to distinguish between good and evil.
If a child lives in faith, he learns to believe in himself and others.
If the child is surrounded by friendliness, he knows that the world is a beautiful place.
1. Tomorrow, when your child wakes up, tell him: “Good morning!” And. do not wait for an answer. Start the day vigorously, and not with remarks and quarrels.
2. When you scold a child, do not use the words “you are always there. “,” You generally. “,” Forever you. “. Your child is always good at all. He just did something wrong today. Tell him about it.
3 Do not part with the child in a quarrel, first reconcile, and then go about your business.
4. Usually, when the child returns from school, they ask him: “Were you called? What mark did you get? ” It is better to ask him: “What was interesting today?”.
5. Try to keep your child tied to the house, to those four walls in which the family lives. Returning home, do not forget to say: “But how good is at home!”.
6. When you want to tell the child “Do not lie, do not lie, do not cheat,” say better: “Do not deceive”. Better yet, smile: “It seems that someone is telling a lie.”
7. When the child leaves the house, be sure to take him to the door and say on the road: “Take your time, be careful.”
8. When the son or daughter returns home, meet them at the door. The child should know that you are glad for his arrival, even if he is guilty.
9. Inspire a child with a well-known mental health formula: “You are good, but not better than others.”
10. Tell the child: “Do not be clean — in the class they do not like clean, do not be dirty — the class does not like dirty. Keep it simple. ”
11. It happens like this: dad leaves in the morning – the boy is still asleep, arrives – the boy is already asleep, and on Sunday dad is fishing. But at least after fishing ask your son: “How are you?”.
12. When a child plays with enthusiasm alone, try not to quit him, not even to meet his gaze, so as not to destroy the world he created in the game.
13. Never reproach a child by its age: “You are already big”, nor by the floor: “And still a boy”, or by a piece of bread: “We feed you”.
14. Try not to criticize anyone with children. Today, you will say something bad about your neighbor, and tomorrow the children will talk badly about you.
15. Remember how long have you heard children’s laughter in your home. The more often children laugh, the better the upbringing goes.
Be sure to check with the teacher and school doctor the basic requirements of the daily regimen;
Together with your child, make up his daily routine, agree on permanent labor matters. Ensure complete unity in the presentation of requirements for the child by all adult family members regarding the implementation of the daily regimen;
For the first 2-3 weeks, help your child get comfortable with the regimen, learn to control yourself during the walk (do not spend extra time). Remind job duties;
Do not forgive any failure to comply with the daily regimen unreasonable by extraordinary events. Achieve quality work duties. Bad and carelessly performed work must be forced to redo;
Evaluate the work of the child, encourage (verbally) his diligence, diligence, perseverance;
Show your dissatisfaction with the breakdown and failure to comply with the daily regimen;
Be an example throughout the child. A personal example is a great educational force. Let the child see that you also have a daily regimen, that you get up and lie down on time, you know how to save time, that everyone in the family has work assignments and without fail as if they are being carried out, etc.
First of all, it is worth remembering about the old and reliable ways to maintain the health of a first grader. This is the observance of the daily regimen: sleep at least 10 hours a day, good nutrition, physical exercises. The limitation of viewing television broadcasts to 30 minutes a day would be justified. Long-term (up to two hours) walking in the air restores the emotional well-being of the child well — not a walk to the shops, but a walk in the park. From early morning tune the child to a good attitude to everything. Tell him “Good morning!” – and get ready for school without any fuss.
When you come to school with your child, try to do without the teachings, as they do not give you anything but morning tiredness. But to explain a safe way to school for a child is necessary. The safe path is not necessarily the shortest, so it is best to leave the house early.
When you meet a child in school after school, rejoice with him that he managed to work on his own, without you, for three hours. Patiently listen to him, praise, support, and in any case, do not scold – because for now there is nothing.
What to do if the first difficulties appear? Be generous in praise, for a first grader now it is very important. The comment should be specific and not relate to the child. He is not a slob, just now he has a little mess in his notebooks. Do not make a child a few comments at once.
- Do not compare the child with other children. This leads to either bitterness or the formation of self-doubt.
The development of the creative abilities of the child
If a child is drawn to creativity, it cannot be limited to standard formats of sheets of paper, pencils and felt-tip pens. The creativity of the child should not suffer from the absence of any materials. Even if parents do not know how to draw, dream, they can still contribute to the development of the child’s creative abilities – to create the conditions, support, nurture his love and desire for the beautiful. Adults should clearly perceive the interests of children, develop their creative imagination.
1. Be surprised, worry, rejoice with your child.
2. The child should have maximum freedom for the initiative and the necessary space.
3. A child should not have a lack of diverse material for creativity.
4. Give your child the opportunity to experiment.
5. The work of the child should not be criticized.
6. Works selected by the child should be hung in a convenient place.
7. Help him make his own plans and make decisions.
8. Take your child to travel to interesting places.
9. Help your child communicate with peers from different cultural backgrounds.
10. Teach your child to prepare their own workplace and clean it up after work.
Child draws family
Dear parents, want to find out how your child feels in the family or how he treats relatives, offer him a task: “Draw your family”
E If the child has painted himself in the center, do not worry – he draws from the position of his vision. This is his world, in which he is the chief magician.
E If he draws only himself, then he is lonely.
Oh, usually, after a child draws the one who he considers the main thing in the family. If he drew a pet on the second, then the child is alone.
E If someone did not draw, he may be offended by him.
And if a child draws all relatives together holding hands, then in your family he is surrounded by the love and attention of loved ones.
If the little ones communicate with each other in the family, then the mother and father of the child draws from each other far away, with an obstacle.
If someone is mouthless, with no hands or with very long hands, the baby is afraid of this person because they shout at him, are severely punished.
If someone draws them with big fingers (like a “scarecrow”) – the world seems uncomfortable to a child.
N disproportionately thick – in a family there is a tense atmosphere; very long legs are striving for independence.
For a loved one, the child will take the same colors with which he painted himself.
A very high contrast image is a sign of unresolved conflict for a child.
E If the child is energetic, active, the colors will choose warm.
X cold colors – dreaminess and thoughtfulness are inherent in the character of the child.
Юб Love to freedom, independence – if coloring, jumps out of the contour with a pencil.
A neat hatching, but if there are unpainted strips, they say uncertainty and helplessness.

Make it a rule: so help the child to promote the development of his abilities and independence. The following tips are listed in such a way that each follow-up implies more serious support than the previous one.
© Explain to your child that you consider him able to do everything on his own. But warn me: “If it does not work at all, you can ask me”
© Suggest to check the tasks: “If you want, I will see your decision later.
© Praise the child for intermediate results. It motivates and gives confidence.
© First try to figure out why the matter stalled, asking questions: “How did you figure this out?” Or “Where did you get this number from?”
© Do not suggest other solutions if the child cannot figure it out.
© Give specific instructions if the child made a mistake: “You got the result: 15, and wrote a completely different number.” Or solve those examples in several stages.
© Do not tell the child if you feel that now he can confidently finish everything alone.
© Speak with the teacher about the gaps in your child’s knowledge and consult. If you explain solutions to your child in the same way that they are explained in school, you will avoid the risk of confusing the child.
© Limit homework assistance to exceptional cases: a long illness or a material that is too complicated. If you are engaged with the child, try not to interfere and, as far as possible, stand aside, allowing the child to think for himself, decide, count and formulate as much as he can.
Show the children how often you love them, do not hide it.
Spend as much time as possible with the whole family, discussing the past day, sharing problems, and consult with each other.
Do not be afraid to ask your child for advice – it will only bring you closer.
Try to make your child’s friends visit your home — you need to know them well.
Discuss the problem calmly, without crying and irritation, then your child will not hide anything from you.
Do not make the child trust his secrets: “We all should know about you” – this will not achieve anything.
You will be trusted if you are not just parents, but friends who can understand and empathize.
Be an example for a child: after all, as you treat your parents now, you will be treated in old age.
Remember that a child is a guest in your house who will eventually leave its native nest. And we must educate him so that he will never forget his family and the warmth of his home.
More often in school.
