Serious apprehension is what many parents feel when they are faced with the fact that it would soon be time for their child to go to preschool. They certainly realize the preschools care will have a great beneficial effect on their child, but there is also the other side of the medal.
The major source of their fear is that it will become an objective reality for everyone how good a job the parents have done in raising their child so far. Preschools care presupposes a great deal of interaction among kids and this will demonstrate the communicative skills that the child has developed earlier in life. Besides, the child's behavior will be a very telling evidence of how wise and experienced his parents are. Therefore preschools care despite being targeted at further child education, can at the same time disclose of his parents' previous slips in the up-bringing of their child.
Preschools care can reveal the spheres in which there is the help of parents needed parents. There are several things they can do in advance in order to prepare to kindergarden. The first is to try to prevent the possible preschool problems. In doing that, what is asked of parents is a great deal of loving patience and careful guidance that needs to be given to their child in order to help overcome the challenges that have a potential of becoming preschool problems.
Preschool problems can be of many kinds, but most can be referred to as long-showing effects of the spheres formerly neglected by the parents.
So that the point is made more clear it may be useful to dwell on one of the potential preschool problems, that being the conflict that children may be in because of somebody's refusal or inability to share. If we care to trace the root s of this problem we will easily discover that this issue like many other preschool problems can demonstrate the child was no taught that the world does not revolve around him.
One the one hand, it seems very reasonable to bring up your child telling him that he is the best and he can get whatever he wants, because this kind of approach teaches the child self-esteem and autonomy. But the dividing line about confidence and conceitedness is very fine indeed, so in order to avoid relevant preschool problems (when telling you child that he is the best and able to get anything) it is necessary to make a reservation that other people surrounding him also deserve a great deal of respect and things are easily obtainable only if they are not somebody else's possession, or else - through fair competition.
Or course trying to discipline the child or influence him in any way it is necessary to keep in mind the peculiarities of children' psychology in some particular age. The subject of child and imaginary friend should not be regarded as something irrelevant to a reasonable and loving parent. It is necessary to try to get to the gist of you child's way of thinking in order to be able to guide and help him most efficiently both at the time of preschools care and further in life.
But this can be done by wise and caring parents only, try to become such and your child will definitely appreciate it.
