CURIOSITY IN YOUR CHILDREN.



CURIOSITY IN YOUR CHILDREN – DOES IT NEED TO BE CHANNELLED?
BY
Linda M. Penn

    Toddlers are just naturally curious, but how much freedom should they be given?  Do we put a leash on them when we take them to a store, festival, etc.?  Do we let them explore and pull things off shelves and tables?  There must be a happy medium!

    The “freedom” parents are going about their business of shopping while their kids are picking up anything off shelves that looks interesting and then sitting in the floor trying to play with it.  Mom and kids having fun – store clerks, not so much!  The “leash” parents are hanging onto their kids’ hands while they try one-handedly to pick and choose items for their cart. 

    Anyone witnessed a kid having a temper tantrum at the grocery lately?  Anyone been to a Local Farmers’ Market or Arts and Crafts Festival lately?  Did it seem the undisciplined kids and dogs have taken over?  Help!  I just fell over a bassethound!  Oops!  That kiddo just threw a tomato on the floor!  Plop!  Oh dear!  That dog is on a long leash and it looks just like the one that bit me last year!  Ouch!

    Let’s have some order and safety for everyone:

If the intended destination is for adult shopping, maybe a nice someone could watch the kids for an hour or so!
Is the intended destination a place to go for a good reason or is it just to show off the kids and dog?
Plan ahead on safe and appropriate places to take the kids and/or dogs where they will have freedom to explore within set boundaries.  Ex. backyard, park, playground, pumpkin patch, museum with interactive exhibits for children.  Also, try a close up and personal encounter with a water puddle, tree, plant, pebble, shell, blades of grass, flower.  And if you can’t think of anything to say to your little one to make these “common” things seem interesting, think of the five senses.  How does it smell?  Feel?  Do you hear anything?  What would that tomato taste like?  Look at those bumps, do you think it is rotten?
Take the kids to the library to check out the endless supply of curious books.

BE SAFE!  BE CURIOUS!  BE COURTEOUS!

After the birth of children, it is very important to look after them. Parents should to make a proper plan and combine everything which makes them confused. Every next stage is full of difficulties and you maybe change your plan according to the situation.

Nice share. I resumewritingservices-reviews.com think your website should come up much higher in the search results than where it is showing up

These are surely the most curious things about which we are supposed to be really very careful. Custody of the kids to the suitable family is the one responsibility for which you are supposed to be careful.
