NARROW-DIRECTED EARLY DEVELOPMENT METHODS
Very popular among parents are both “universal” methods aimed at the comprehensive development of the child, and “narrowly focused”, where the focus is on one thing: either the development of certain abilities, or the development of hearing, vision, physical data, etc. It is precisely about the latter that we are proposing today to talk about.
Narrowly targeted early development practices
The tendency to educate little geniuses that has spread in recent years has led to the popularization of a number of early development techniques. It is no secret to anyone that with age, the human ability to learn is significantly reduced, and all the knowledge, habits and fundamentals of world perception that are necessary for life are laid in childhood.
That is why the main idea of most of these techniques is the comprehensive development of children from birth to six years. As studies show, it is at this age that the child is most disposed to remembering, and already from the age of seven, brain growth stops and the development of new information becomes more difficult.
Note that both “universal” methods aimed at the comprehensive development of the child and “narrowly targeted” ones are very popular among parents, where the main attention is paid to one thing: either the development of certain abilities, or the development of hearing, vision, physical data, etc. .d. It is precisely about the latter that we are proposing today to talk about.
ABOUT ETHICAL ASPECTS OF EARLY CHILD DEVELOPMENT
On the one hand, each baby develops differently and, perhaps, at some point in his life, he does not know how to do what his peers do. But this is not a reason for panic. Do not overload the baby with various developmental programs so that he catches up with or surpasses the neighboring children in the development. Encroaching on the individuality of the child, parents risk depriving him of the right to choose and that natural desire for knowledge of the world, which is characteristic of every person.
Parental attention, on the other hand, is a key link in this knowledge. The sensible approach of an adult allows you to unleash the potential of a child who in acute need of help in infancy.
It is the parents who can “push” the baby to certain actions, interest him and teach elementary things that contribute to further learning. But in the choice of developing methods, it is important that parents sensitively monitor the mood of the child, his desire to comprehend the world. After all, only on a positive mood of the child is any development methodology based.
WHAT AND HOW TO TEACH A BABY?
All of the popular early developmental techniques have been developed to help young mothers educate their children. However, it is sometimes difficult for parents to decide on the most suitable methodology and understand which way to go in order to achieve maximum benefit.
Most of these techniques are aimed at harmonious development, and it is difficult to accurately classify them, although they have certain similarities according to some criteria. So, there are techniques in which the main emphasis is on physical development, and in others on creative.
Since at the first stages of life, children learn elementary movements (turning over, sitting, walking, etc.), physical development is of paramount importance to them. But after a year, when he can walk independently and see what is around him, more attention needs to be paid to the development of memory, thinking, and horizons. And here it is precisely the “narrowly targeted” development methods that may be most effective, some of which we propose to consider in more detail.
DIVING METHOD IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE
Zhanna Kitaigorodskaya developed a methodology, which is based on the game form of classes in the study of a foreign language. The author believes that the concepts familiar to children should be presented in the form of “encrypted codes”. For example, when a child picks up an apple, he needs to name another name for this fruit – apple. So, he will have the necessary associations with one or another subject, which in the future will make it easier for him to learn a new language. Over time, the child will become particularly interested in learning more words, and he will begin to ask for these “code” names.
It is very important that the classes are held regularly by the same teacher, who does not “understand” the child’s native language at all. According to the method of immersing a foreign language in the environment developed by Zhanna Kitaigorodskaya, the study should begin at the age of three years, since during this period the children already know quite well the vocabulary and grammar of the language of which they are native speakers.
It is widely known that music calms children. They begin to move under it, mastering the first dance movements and showing emotions. The main goal of the “Absorption of music” methodology is to form emotional sensitivity and develop imagination through conducting music lessons.
