Parents often feel the need to express countless things to their children, but they can't find the right way to do it. Sometimes, inadvertently, the adult marks children's lives positively or negatively with a single word.
All excesses are harmful. It is unnecessary to speak harshly, shouting and using swear words and not underestimating their intelligence. In this case, you must use a middle ground where children understand the situation clearly in a respectful way, known as assertiveness.
Assertiveness is the ability to defend your point of view without attacking or disrespecting others. This favors relationship building with other people. It is essential to make children understand that their opinion as that of others is important and they should not be afraid when expressing their point of view.
There are three kinds of children: Passive: usually, those are children who, for fear of not being accepted, do not defend their point of view and are unhappy.
Aggressive: those are children who do not take into account other's opinions, they think that the only opinion that matters is theirs, rudely express their ideas and tend to be rejected by everyone.
And finally there are the Assertive: these are children who respect themselves and others, know how to express their ideas clearly and appropriately, they are readily accepted in social groups.
Now, it is important to ask yourself what kind of children you want to form. It must be taken into account that the family environment in which children live significantly influences how their character develops.
Suppose at home people speak assertively to each other, and the fundamental axis is respect. In that case, the child will grow up following that example. A loved and respected child will reflect the same when interacting with others.
The following Easter crafts for kids activity is designed based on the Montessori learning method, which seeks to develop children's learning in a safe and harmonious environment. Children can develop their skills independently when parents recognize that the only way children succeed in learning is when interest and motivation are present.
