How to teach your child to politely talk
Often parents procrastinate with learning the simplest rules of etiquette, because believe that their child is too small to absorb them. This is a gross mistake: by doing so, you risk to grow a person who does not even know the magic words "thank you" and "please". The task of parents - to explain to the child how to talk to older relatives, with strangers, with friends.
Psychologists recommend to start teaching kids polite conversation with the three years. At this age, baby is able to not only remember the right words, but also to understand the very meaning of their use. The child in many ways replicates the behavior of their parents, so if you often say "thank you" and "please", smiling people behave cordially, demonstrate knowledge of etiquette at a party, kid pleased to support this game and will do the same. However, children are curious and notice something that is not familiar with all of you behave the same way. They can not understand why you are warmly embracing girlfriend and my sister and hello politely but coolly. Your task - to explain the "rules of the game." The first thing to explain to your child the difference in communicating with peers and elders. He has to understand who needs to say "you", and to whom -. "You" This can be done in the form of a game, for example, to arrange a tea party dolls and their example to show how to behave at a party, how to respond to an offer to drink a cup of tea, how to thank the hosts for a delicious lunch. Children 3-5 years are very sensitive and easy to remember such things. To consolidate the effect, teaching a child to speak politely to the example of books and cartoon heroes. Talk to your baby if done correctly Pinocchio, cricket offending, and why he behaved rudely with other heroes. Talk about "Jack Frost," why one character, who knows how to be polite, helpful, and boorish punished. Arrange a little game that the child is easier to understand the basics of polite conversation. Finally, remember that a child should not cry when he talks impolite. We must calmly explain to your child's mistake or ask for it, as it were, favorite character did in this case.
