Sometimes children do not have time to discover their skills, because parents have already established them and force them to attend all kinds of courses.
Your child takes violin lessons, but are you thinking about meditating on math? Do you want your son to win chess, soccer and karate competitions and would you like to see your daughter dancing in "Swan Lake"?
Do you think that the efforts of your children help them achieve better results in school and be better prepared for life? Well, that's not always the case, said the British daily "The Times".
The meditations and the pressure your child is subjected to do nothing more than physically and mentally exhaust him. Moreover, he turns into a little robot, without the right to decide what would be good for him or what he would like to do.
Often parents limit the imagination of the child and shape it so that they realize what they have not succeeded. The little ones do not have time to discover their skills, because their parents have already established them, sometimes even before their birth.
Do not overload your children!
Psychologists are trying to convince parents not to overdo it with regard to children's education and to stop overloading them. Often adults panic when thinking about the future of their little ones and do not know in which directions to point them.
Children do not have to be national champions in various sports or know how to play a musical instrument perfectly, unless they want it.
Psychologist Cristiana Levitchi believes that exaggerated extracurricular activities, especially those made for high grades, are perceived by the child as pressures.
"I met children with psychosomatic manifestations of fainting, gastritis, headaches, vomiting, tics and even triggers of epilepsy caused by the pressures they were subjected to at school, and at home. press because they want to take high notes, and thus a vicious circle is created. I do not encourage in any case the meditations that have the purpose of obtaining high notes. It seems to me aberrant that a parent obliges his child to take 10 notes at all matters because only that, he believes, will come to life, "explains Cristiana Levitchi.
