IMPROVE YOUR THINKING SKILLS

six Parenting tips

Kids really strive to be perfect and the younger the child, the more often they fail.  For some kids this leads to what is called “learned helplessness.”  Feeling you will never be good enough so you stop trying. For others it create a steady erosion of feeling capable.

The media which promotes perfection needs strong countering from parents.  So here are some tips to do that:.

Parenting tip one: Praise trying more than success.

Parenting tip two: Make it clear everyone has talents and everyone has limits.  Life is  long experiment in discovering what you do best as well as what you cannot do.

Parenting tip three: Talk a bit about luck or chance as part of success. 

Parenting tip four: With the under school age child, talk about all s/he as learned. Ask if the child recalls learning to sit up, walk, or talk.

Parenting tip five: Always code reality.  Take Santa Claus or all forms of fantasy.   Label such things as myths or make-believe.  The  child will not fully understand what you are talking about and  will still enjoy the fantasy; however, s/he but will not be shocked when his or her thoughts change and the meaning of make-believe finally dawns.

Parenting tip six: With a child moving into the teen years or already there promote critical thinking.  Use social media, the words in songs, movies, ads on tv to do so.  encourage critical thinking puzzle solving but make it a fun.
