The two-year-old baby begins to enter the first psychological critical period of “self-centered”. How to effectively convey what can and cannot be done to the baby is a challenge and an important test for you!
How to “reason” with 2-year-old baby
In order to make the baby integrate into the society smoothly and become a useful talent, parents need to regulate the baby’s life from an early age and guide him to grow up healthily. For the two-year-old baby who has a stronger and stronger sense of “self”, what way should he use to make him understand the content you delivered and accept your opinions? Mastering the following three keys will make you get twice the result with half the effort!
No.1 baby loves to get to the bottom of the matter
After the baby is two years old, the language control ability begins to show, you will find that he likes to ask questions. The baby will often stare at the curious eyes, see what to ask, a look forward to waiting for your “standard answer”.
Psychology calls this stage “the first critical period of growth”. Generally speaking, it is a period of rapid psychological growth of the baby. In order to quickly understand the world around, the baby will not miss any opportunity to ask questions, and even to ask the end. Parents without psychological preparation will actively cooperate with the baby’s questions and give the most correct and reasonable answers. However, gradually, they will find that the deeper the answer is, the more doubts the baby will have about this question, which will lead to the confusion of both adults and babies.
Educational Countermeasures: it’s better not to give “correct answers” to deep questions
When the baby is two or three years old, he does not mean that he is in the stage of “perception”. He does not mean that he is in the stage of “perception”. He does not mean that he is in the stage of “perception”. He does not mean that he is in the stage of “perception”. He only wants to know when he is two or three years old. Therefore, you answered his questions too “correctly”, but deepened the confusion in the baby’s heart.
Some of the more difficult to understand the question, it is best not to directly give the baby “the correct answer”! He will not take this answer too seriously. What you don’t know is that the baby just wants to ask questions. As for the answer, it doesn’t seem to matter.
No.2 is often unreasonable
The two-year-old baby relies on intuitive thinking. Most of his behaviors are dominated by emotions. He is not rational. When some requirements are not met, he often makes trouble out of reason. In the way of education, you should adapt to this characteristic and educate him through feelings. If you violate this characteristic, always give the baby reason or criticism education, it can’t be understood and absorbed by him.
It’s like the baby’s stomach is fragile when he is just born. Even if there is any nutrition and digestion, it is not suitable for him. Education is also the same, you should guide according to the different characteristics of different periods of the baby, in order to get the education effect.
Education strategy: Education in fun
The things or activities that the baby is interested in often stimulate his happy mood and are willing to actively participate in this activity. Make it easy to understand and reason with your baby if you want to. This is what people often call “education in fun”!
“Education in fun” is the most suitable way for two-year-old babies! You may as well take time to play some small games with your baby. Through the demonstration role of adults participating in the game, you can teach the baby the judgment standard of right and wrong.
No.3 good imitation of adults
The imitation behavior of the two-year-old baby is becoming more and more obvious after the age of three. Most of the baby imitates some specific external activities or actions, which are easy to understand. Because they are in the Enlightenment period of “self-consciousness”, they seem to feel that they have grown up, so what adults do will bring freshness to the baby. They want to try and imitate.
Educational Countermeasures: parents play a good role model
The baby obtains the perception and learning experience through imitation. You need to be good at using the imitation characteristics of this age, so that all kinds of good behavior habits can be consolidated through imitation learning, and gradually form stable personality traits. Therefore, parents should always pay attention to their own words and deeds, some casual details are often imitated by the baby and form a variety of bad behavior habits.
When a baby makes a mistake, you can educate and influence him through simple repetitive behaviors. Don’t conceptualize and complicate education, because the baby can’t understand the concepts in your mouth and remember your complicated behaviors. For example, it’s not easy to be hit by a baby because it’s a bad thing to be beaten by a baby. In addition, let the baby in your lead to experience their own words and deeds of error, and then to guide him to apologize, after the timely appeasement of the baby’s emotions, and the baby’s brave behavior to be sure to strengthen his more correct behavior.
