Protection of Curiosity Act-woodwam

(6) Protection of curiosity method

  Curiosity can trigger a person to explore, trigger a person's thinking. When children ask parents some strange and bizarre questions, parents should not reprimand, but to give protection. Also create conditions to stimulate the child's curiosity in order to promote the development of thinking power.

  Create a colorful environment for the child, so that the child can always get a sense of novelty from it, so that he is full of curiosity about the world. This is an important condition for the development of thinking.

  Parents can draw their children's curiosity to nature. You can take your child to the wilderness and to the park to observe the changes in nature. For example, let the child go to the pond to observe the tadpoles, to see how they turn into jumping frogs, to see how the tadpoles shed their tails and grow little legs ...... Maybe this kind of observation, this kind of thinking, will prompt the child to become a biologist. Parents can also take their children to the botanical garden to observe a variety of plants, so that the child to explore why plants grow leaves, why flowers, perhaps this curiosity will prompt the child to become a botanist.

  Curiosity is a prelude to thinking and a precursor to success. Parents need to have the right attitude toward their children's questions.

  First, encourage.

  Praise children who love to ask questions, and answer them correctly and in a timely manner. Adults respond positively to children's questions can make children's curiosity, curiosity to be satisfied, which will prompt them to ask more questions, interested in everything, which has a positive effect on inspiring thinking. But in reality, many parents tend to ignore their children's questions, and even to reprimand them rudely for asking too many questions and being annoying. Gorky once said: "Children's questions, if only to answer: 'Wait, when you grow up, you will understand. This is tantamount to defeating the child's desire to know."

  Second, inspiration.

  Answer questions in an enlightening way. The child should be guided to notice the connections between things and encouraged to use his or her existing knowledge and experience to find out the answer through thinking.

  Third, doubt.

  If the child's question parents really do not know, we should tell the child truthfully: "I'm not sure about this problem, so I'll check the book or ask someone else to tell you." Afterwards, parents must really try to find out and give their children a satisfactory answer as far as possible.

  Fourth, guidance.

  Some children raise odd questions, the bull's-eye, parents should guide, not reprimand the child, as long as the right guidance can protect the child's curiosity, and do not make the child's nonsense.

  In short, the child's curiosity and desire to know should be encouraged and satisfied, and the child should be taught to think. Do not scold your child for fear that you will lose face by not answering. If you take this attitude, you will not only kill your child's curiosity and suppress his or her thinking, but you will also make your parents lose prestige.

  (7) for the teacher method

  When the student is easy when the teacher is difficult, difficult is difficult not only to understand themselves, but also to let others understand, which requires the brain, so it is often said that teaching and learning. Usually children are as students, is passive thinking, if children as teachers should be active thinking. To make others understand, they have to understand more, which stimulates the enthusiasm of the child's thinking.

  Parents should encourage their children to become teachers. You can cultivate their desire to be a teacher from a young age, give them a few small stools, a small blackboard, a few chalk, etc.. Let them take turns to act as teachers and give "lessons" to other children.

  Encourage your child to pass on his or her knowledge to his or her peers, and encourage your child to improve himself or herself while teaching others.

  From time to time, you can ask your child to teach you something as well.

  "Why can't I do this problem, show me!"

  "Help me, how come I can't guess this riddle?"

  "How do you say this foreign word?"

  "What can you do if the computer is not working?"

  Parents can knowingly ask questions, can pretend not to understand, let the child act as a teacher, in the process of teacher to promote the child's thinking power to improve.

  (8) Rhetorical questions - theory method

  The rhetorical questioning method is when the child asks the parent a question, the parent does not answer, but asks the child back, prompting the child to think for themselves. Of course, the rhetorical questions should be appropriate to the child to point out a little thought.

  Some parents are tired of looking up information in order to cope with their children's endless questions. At this time, the occasional rhetorical question to ask the child, is also good, the rhetorical way, lies in not immediately give the child a clear answer.

  If a child asks: Why do people have children? Parents can ask: What would the world look like if people didn't have children? The child may think about it and say: If no one has children, there will be no more people and the world will be finished.

  The child asks: Why does China need family planning, so that a family can have one child? Parents may ask: What would China be like if we had just one child? The child will then think for himself and find the answer.

  In short, answering the child with rhetorical questions not only gives the parent a little time to breathe, but also allows the parent to step back from the lead role to a supporting role, allowing the child to start thinking about their own questions, expanding their world of thinking, and their minds to be trained.

  In order not to make the child overly dependent on the parent to get all the answers. Parents can reserve some answers and not give them all, or ask the child rhetorical questions, or ask half answers, or enlighten the child. Even when answering a child's question, leave room for the child to think.

  The more the reasoning becomes clear, the faster the thinking develops in the argument. Inspiring children to engage in arguments and getting them eager to discuss is also a great way to promote thinking. Arguments are the best way to stimulate deep thinking, and to win in an argument you need to draw on a wide range of sources and use logical thinking.

  Discussions can brainstorm and inspire each other, and will also promote thinking. The content of the discussion, the content of the argument is the content of thinking, the results of the discussion, the results of the argument is the result of thinking. At home, parents should often start discussions and arguments with their children to provoke them to think. The family room decorations, holidays, birthday celebrations and other activities can also be discussed, so that the child to think about the best solution. This can all exercise the child's thinking skills.
