2 summer kid and fun

2 summer kid and fun.

From the first moment of his life, Jędruś became the apple of his eye” own parents. Overly caring, excessive embarrassment of the little one caused, that the child was restless, and - although large and strong - less agile than their peers. This, in turn, made the already oversensitive parents even more anxious and concerned. During their work, the boy was taken care of by his grandmother. More specifically, she was supervising her grandson. During her mother's absence, she mostly kept watch, so that the little one eats the portion intended for him, he went to bed at the appointed time and did no harm to himself.

Jędruś, when he stood firmly on his feet – and it was quite late, because the grandmother, despite the grandson's vigorous protests, kept him in a cot or strapped to the stroller for a long time, and the floor, and even the playpen was considered too dangerous a place - he had decidedly discarded his old toys. He was reaching for spoons, cups, pots, and Grandma - again in misguided concern for the little one - firmly took away all these objects from him in fear, that they could harm themselves. Instead, she pushed a soft one, stuffed, oilcloth dog, plastic kitten, teddy bear. But these toys did not suit the boy. So he grumbled and cried, he was angry and grumpy. And grandma was complaining, that she has a real nuisance with the child.

Only when my mother came home from work, "Treasures”, he had been dreaming about all day: cups, pots, something, spoons, sitka, cedzaki itd. So he paced around, he spread these coveted items on the couch and the floor, he put something in them, he was taking something out, he stirred the quasi-content with a spoon, he brought it to his mouth, tasted, he offered his mother to taste. And from the capricious, screaming, a troublesome boy turned into a perfectly calm child absorbed in play.

In the second year of the toy's life, which they enjoyed in infancy, suddenly lose interest. Their place is often taken by everyday objects. The child sees them constantly in the hands of adults. I'm watching, that they perform many different manipulations with them. So he wants to imitate all these activities, and because he can't transfer them to his toys yet, so he asks for dishes, that are used by adults.

In the first year of life, the child not only established emotional contact with his immediate environment, not only learned to recognize "their own” from "strangers", but also learned to communicate with them. Already at the turn of the first and second year of life, he can, without using words, express with gestures, movements of the whole body, I'm crying, screaming, mime, repeating individual syllables your desires, inform, what he expects from the environment. He can also understand simple sentences addressed to him.

In the second year of life, he will master the next very important activities - not only will he learn to walk well and confidently, but will also run, climb on toes, walk up the stairs putting one foot on the other, throw in a certain direction, he will also start to use speech better and better. All these skills are acquired and perfected in play. So you have to create good conditions for it, stimulating fun development. They also need to be taught how to play.

A child at the beginning of the second year of life tries to faithfully recreate activities demonstrated to him by adults. He even plays with a doll or a teddy bear just like that, as it was taught by mom, dad or grandma. So you have to show him, how to put them to sleep, how to rock, cover with a quilt, how to feed, take for a walk, how to stack blocks on top of each other and next to each other, how to pull a duckling behind you, so that it doesn't turn over every now and then, how to push a butterfly attached to a stick, how to throw a ball, to bounce high off the ground. In one word, A child's play should include many different elements, helping him in acquiring new skills or improving already mastered ones.

If we do not show a child at this age, how to play with a doll, teddy bear, dog, what activities can be done around them, it won't be interested in toys. Many parents say helplessly: on (then) doesn't want to play with toys. And the kid just can't do it, because no one taught him, no one showed, how to take care of the toy. If, on the other hand, we demonstrate to the child the first playful activities, this will soon begin to enrich them by itself, diversify, change, enter already observed, carefully observed in adults, recreate those moments from your own life, which he considers particularly important.

A small child tirelessly accompanies adults in their daily bustle all day long, he watches everything closely, what are they doing. He tries to imitate them, first claiming the same items, which they use. Over time, he will begin to play the remembered activities on his toys. He'll barely finish breakfast or lunch, and is already offering a spoon to the doll, teddy bear, ball. She feeds all her toys one by one. Sometimes it does something interesting, an exciting activity and forget everything, won't even notice, that he had a "disaster", and when embarrassed by its caretakers, it will remind its toys of the need to settle its physiological needs in time, put them on the potty, to embarrass, punish, once with a finger, then giving out energetic slaps again. Faithfully imitates the behavior of adults in these situations.
