Accepting Our Child's Guidance I

Accepting Our Child's Guidance I

This article is the first part of our series on how we can help our child choose both parenting style and toys in early childhood.

Early childhood period covers the period from birth to 8 years old and is a very important stage. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that this period is much more important than the next education life.

From where?

Because what children learn during this time and how they learn lays the foundation for the rest of their lives.

Educational tools in these first years of life shape children's social, emotional and physical health and will also help develop the intrinsic motivation necessary for lifelong learning.

Therefore, whatever the early childhood philosophies you follow, the main point is to be guided by the child.

So how can we do this?

This is only possible by watching our child and adapting to it.

Everything starts with the birth of your baby. The best thing we can do for our baby from the moment they are born is to let him develop at his own pace. It is enough to present these experiences by observing what makes them feel happy and safe during this period.

For toddlers, however, we can change our attitude towards encouraging their natural curiosity and providing them with a variety of opportunities to connect with people, places and things around them.

In the preschool period, this again means following their interests and presenting different concepts in line with their curiosity.

When they reach early childhood, it's a good idea to give them plenty of free time to pursue their passions.

It is also very important to be aware of the concept of schema in order to better understand and support your child's development. Schemas are repetitive patterns of behavior that enable children to understand the world around them through play and exploration.

For example, a small child constantly throwing objects on the ground is actually a diagram. By throwing different objects on the ground, your little one is actually developing his schema. After so many tries, he's probably noticed that the ball bounces off the ground, some things break, some things make a lot of noise, and more.

Providing toys that help children fully explore their schemas will allow us to help them learn new things by following their intrinsic motivation.

We will be talking about common schematic game types and the toy selections that will support these schematic games in our next blog.
