Many parents regard education as a competition, and they have to find ways to let their children run ahead of others. After all, if you don't rush forward, others will overtake you. But in fact, after entering the society, the real social life is more like a relay race, which not only requires your strong personal ability, but also needs to cooperate with other people and have excellent cooperation ability. Many people began to cultivate this ability after university. At the same time, some people have mastered this ability since childhood. So how to let children start from childhood, and gradually cultivate their ability to cooperate?
In fact, housework is a good way to cultivate. Although it is a small matter, it can exercise children's cooperation ability and leadership. Studies have shown that children who have been involved in housework since the age of three to four are better able to adapt to the environment as adults, who also have better relationships with friends and family and more successful careers. The following three ways are to train children to transform housework from an independent task to a group task.
In order to make children more compassionate and learn not only to think for themselves, we need to focus on "taking care of the family" rather than "taking care of themselves".
For example, "clean up the living room" rather than "clean up your own wooden toys or plastic toys.". In this way, let the children understand that "housework" is not to complete their own tasks, but to undertake family responsibilities.
In daily life, it is a good way to talk about housework with a positive attitude. If the family can have a happy attitude, the children will enjoy the process more.
If parents can have a positive attitude, they can also become an example to their children.
If the child has the cognition that "doing housework will give money", then housework will change from "free help" to a kind of transaction. This is not conducive to helping children develop the mentality of actively helping their families. For example, when you ask your children to clean up their toys, such as wooden toy boxes, wooden puzzle boxes, wooden toy trucks and so on, they may ask for payment, otherwise they will not want to tidy up.
The right way is to praise children with words. If you "thank them for being a little helper", it can significantly increase their willingness to help.
These are the three methods of "domestic education law". Nowadays, school education, social education and family education are equally important. But the most critical educational opportunity for children is actually in your own home. In addition to doing housework, playing wooden educational toys with children is also a good way to exercise cooperation. For example, parents can play with their children some educational toys, such as wooden jigsaw puzzles, wooden building blocks, wooden number toys, etc., to solve the problems encountered, and let the children know that there are many advantages in working with others.
