This article focuses on the moments of raising a child with down syndrome. Just want to note that I write only my own experience. Don’t know how many different opinions there are on this. A unified system of education no — that’s why so many discrepancies. Blame the system and to agree with another may not, so just present the facts.
Let me begin with the first days. I learned about the diagnosis of her son back to the family table (the phenotype) when I didn’t want to give it up. On — worse. None of my relatives wanted me to come. Nobody. In my family there is a worship study, and «perfect man», so that the defective child absolutely did not fit. Remember those days not very desirable. Whatever you say — I put a huge bolt on all the exhortations of those who was supposed to support me. It was hard, sad and painful. Saved me the realization that I love my child and would never be able to live with the fact that she dumped him. Today we all made it up, because the family — the most important thing in life.
The first thing I want to highlight: the biggest mistake that can be avoided by parents of children with disabilities — lock it up at home. About other diagnoses not speak, but I assure you — now opportunities for social adaptation so wide that almost all children Continue reading
Beloved children. All they are allowed. All they are allowed. Sweets? Please. The cartoons? To health. Don’t want to walk? Well, okay. Toy assemble forces there? Nothing, mother collect. No refusal, no ban. Whence then comes a spoiled child? And how he will show his character, so hold on all: and grandmothers, and grandfathers, and mothers with fathers. And how to return back the little angel as he at first seemed, no one knows. Because the kid knows how to manipulate adults. If you do not cry, tears, if not tears, tantrums. What to do about that?
So little Karina. Cute 6-year-old girl. The only baby in the family. Favorite all. And because much spoiled. Karina in subjection to all the relatives. If one is trying to blame the girl, the other will certainly fit to stand up in its defense. If someone from adults and believes that the extra time would deny another adult certainly seem that this is too strict. So Karina gets what she wants, and at the same moment, when she asks about it.
Most of all I love the baby grandmother. They got over two. And each vying tries to please his beloved granddaughter. But why not appreciate Marinochka their efforts. Slightly raises a cry and grandmothers have already learned how to swear. Even Continue reading
As you know, many parents want to work with children, play educational games from birth (and someone even before). Learning to read through the cubes Zaitseva, “to swim before she could walk”, the teaching of English along with the Russian, the music from the cradle, and so forth. Montessori teacher Kaleikini Xenia will tell us about the creative activities with the baby .
“What is the significance of artistic activity for a child a year and a half?
Starting from infancy, the child shows interest in everything bright and colorful. So it will be interesting to explore the world through artistic activity . But when you first time to give still quite inept grips the brush, pencil, plasticine? Parents often think that these awkward fingers yet nothing can. Maybe he will stick it in your mouth? And if it gets dirty? And why he is all, he is still small!
Any psychologist and teacher will tell you that drawing, modeling – this is a necessary and useful method of early development. And it is better to start doing arts with one and a half years. You ask “How? After all, it’s too early?”. You can come to mind frightening thought: how to keep clothes, furniture and all the surrounding space from total staining of the apartment in as yet an unknown Continue reading
