What factors determines the intelligence quotient of a child? Why are classes in the form of a game at preschool age? Why develop toddler creativity and components of reading and how to do it right?
All parents want their children to be better prepared for school than others. How to achieve this and who needs it?
The main thing to remember is that the success of a child in preschool age does not at all guarantee that he will achieve anything in adulthood. The pace of development is different for everyone, someone starts talking a year, while others – only three. And if one kid reads fluently already at the age of four, then his friend, even in the first grade, barely parses the text by syllables. But in any case, the time will come when this difference will disappear. Lagging children are gradually catching up and even surpassing those who were previously more successful.
Do not be discouraged if your little one is not working on words to describe a person out yet. After all, he certainly has no equal in any other area. And he will definitely eliminate the lag, if you help him in this.
Mind and logic.
There are schools in which, upon admission to the first grade, children are tested for IQ. Normally, a child should have a coefficient equal to one hundred. If the indicator reaches one hundred twenty-five to one hundred thirty, they talk about giftedness, if this level is one hundred and sixty and above, such a kid is considered a child prodigy.
In fact, not everything is so simple. The intelligence quotient makes it possible to judge not about the natural mind, but only about the development of logic, outlook and knowledge of the child. And this directly depends on how much adults do with him.
In any case, long-term predictions cannot be made based on the results of such a test. It’s no secret that many little wunderkinds outgrow their talent with age and become ordinary people. Already in high school, former geniuses can lag behind their peers who were previously outstripped in school.
Many preschoolers have more developed practical rather than abstract intelligence. In addition, a truly gifted child can give a non-standard answer to a question that is automatically considered wrong. And the excitement in unfamiliar surroundings and in the presence of strangers cannot be ignored.
Child psychologists object to testing children for admission to school. They have not yet come up with 100% reliable tests, which means that this procedure is just additional stress for babies.
Psychologists say that each person has his own resource of opportunities and songs with figurative language. Therefore, it is advised to develop not intelligence, but creativity – the ability to make non-standard decisions, think creatively. This quality does not disappear with age, on the contrary, it helps a person express himself, achieve success in creativity, find a way out of any situation.
Encourage individuality and independence in the child, do not impose stereotypes and patterns of behavior, do not forbid to explore the world around him the way he wants.
Try to limit children’s freedom less, let the baby express himself. And even if he reinvents the wheel, don’t get in the way or rush. Help and support, especially if the baby asks you about it.
Be sure to introduce your child to creativity. It is not so important what it will be – modeling, drawing, playing musical instruments, singing, composing fairy tales and poems, puppet theater, beading, embroidery, quilling. It is in creative pursuits, as in play, that fantasy manifests itself and develops.
There are factors that inhibit the development of babies. These include, first of all, hours of watching TV or endless games on the computer. Of the useful activities, walks in the fresh air, board and role-playing games, and communication with adults can be noted. And in the evening, before going to bed, once again discuss with your child all the events of the day – this will be a kind of exercise for the brain.
Most importantly, do not force children to do what they do not like. Do not compare your child with others, do not think that your son or daughter should be able to do everything that is easy for the neighbour’s kids. Go for a crumb, then you definitely will not discourage him from craving for something new. By observing, you are more likely to notice that the child likes more, that he is better at it. All children have talents and abilities, you just need to be able to discern them.
