Enjoy this time that your Child is “GROWING ” Through!

As adults, we understand that children are more alike than different. Their basic needs are the same in having- safety, love, welcomed/belonging, encouragement, boundaries and interaction. They need to know that you will return once out of their sight. They also need to know the process or details in learning a new concept. Introductions to new learning experiences for parents and children should be fun and enjoyable. Children have no knowledge of societal competitions. They see a new world and work in all that they do. The new worlds and works are experienced many times in play. Play is essential, play is fun. Children remind us how much fun adventures can be. The showing of the varied emotions- excitement, surprise, anger, frustration; can come in 7 seconds of a fun adventure. Adults view playing stops at around ages 5 or 6, when children go off to the formal environment of education- school and start to learn and can really begin to do things. Playing IS learning! It is also a bridge that connects the adult to the child on the child’s level. It may also be a stress reliever for the adult. There are parents who see their infant and toddler as helpless. At Talk, Walk & Learn Center, LLC/SHIFTS Night Care Center, LLC 24-hour learning care services, we see them as stronger little people by the second. We give more to them as well as to the parent. We teach the parents to look ahead some 20 years and more. Here’s an example: a seasoned parent, who had enrolled with us, was asked what did they want their 3 month old child to learn. The parent responded and pointed to their child, “This! what can he learn at this age?” The teacher talked with that parent, showing all the developmental things done with their child as well as what can be done at home. We value the children that walk through our doors, as well as the parents. We set about teaching both. For the adults it may be subtle. There have been times when it was “Hold it! Are you seeing what  is before you?” We then ask the parent if they want our assistance or if they desire a specific community liaison to assist them. We welcome you to our web site and into our...

Guide

The infant/child learns so quickly. How does a parent know what to do and how to give? Remember, parents don’t know the path their child will take, they can only hope and guide. ALL babies are miracles, it’s what you do for and to that miracle that shows long term. Here are some long term guides for the parents to embrace: Show affection and closeness with your child that you plan on continuing the rest of their life. Talk with them, opening up and continuing communication the way you plan to continue for the rest of their life. Read with some form of facial enthusiasm, modeling this technique can encourage a healthy reader for the rest of their life. Writing, beyond checks, and showing what the writing looks like, how to hold the pencil/pen, and strengthening the muscles in the hand can encourage a healthy writer for the rest of their life. Speaking in conversation and in public with the use of correct pronunciation and grammar can encourage a healthy speaker for the rest of their life. Being seen as approachable by others, warm smiles, hugs, extending to handshake, etc. can encourage a healthy approachable spirit for the rest of their life. Showing how to positive problem solving/resolution techniques encourages a healthy problem solver for the rest of their life. Do you see our theme here: ‘plan’ and ‘encourage’ ‘healthy’ ‘for the rest of their life.’ Welcome to our web site and into our learning care service doors that will provide so much more for your child and...
