The level of manual dexterity of the child

The level of manual dexterity of the child.

The level of manual dexterity of a child says a lot about his sand play. If it only makes "babies” and besides, they come out quite ineptly, if he doesn't try, even being on a beautiful sandy beach, erect no buildings, it is worth encouraging them to do so. Show, how you can build a big harbor on a small river, and what great fun you can have in it, help build a fortified castle, etc. And again in winter, we will first encourage the child to play with snowballs, making a snowman, and then, when he gets the hang of it, to build clever structures out of snow, sculptures of various figures.

baby, which is clearly sloppy, he moves awkwardly, does not like to run, a stay in the countryside will do well. There will be many opportunities there, to encourage them to overcome various terrain obstacles: walking on a fallen tree trunk, climbing up and down hills, jumping over a small groove. Overcoming obstacles gives the child a lot of pleasure, helps you control your movements, gives you a sense of your own fitness and strength.

In a city park or yard, you can encourage people to jump over a stick lying on the ground or drawn lines, climbing stairs, jumping down one or two steps. Let him do it with the help of adults first, and when he gets the hang of it, on his own. Kids, especially the less graceful ones, they tend to jump all over their feet for a long time. So you have to teach them, to jump on their toes and the first attempts at this activity should take place under the supervision of adults.

If we buy reins that jingle bells, even a child who is not very active will want to run and play horses with his peers. A nice colorful ball also encourages and provokes movement games. Rolling hoops can also be attractive to a child. new, the coveted toy most effectively encourages to undertake even not very liked activities. It depends to a large extent on our reaction and our conduct, if he likes to have fun, which is not working well for him.

A silent child, taciturn, those who do not express themselves on their own initiative must, in turn, be encouraged to talk. Ask, how was kindergarten, how was your friend, What did he like most about the story he read?, ask for a poem, sing along with your child. Toy, which prompts speech, there is a projector. First, of course, the parents have to tell the child several times - and in an interesting way – about the pictures you see together, and then we will encourage them and stimulate them to express themselves, asking various questions.

If the parents' efforts do not bring visible results and the child still clearly prefers one type of play, and avoids others, it is necessary to seek the advice of a psychologist. The sooner we do it, the better for the baby, because any developmental abnormalities are easier to correct at a younger age. So don't wait, until the child grows up to undertake school duty and only when enrolling in school will his/her developmental defects be detected. It is best to address your concerns to a psychologist in an educational and vocational counseling center as soon as possible. And under his guidance, start working on leveling and stimulating the development of the child.
