How to cultivate children's hands-on ability?

Many parents always evaluate their children based on their grades, ignoring the overall development of their children. This kind of educational philosophy has a very bad impact on the overall development of children. Wise parents not only value their children's academic performance, but also their children's ability development.

In the process of educating children, parents should change the standard of judging children by test scores, because the quality of children is not simply expressed by grades. In an era that emphasizes quality education, it is not enough to just ask children to study hard and get high scores. Other qualities also need the cultivation of parents, especially children's hands-on ability. Nowadays, the society is more and more emphasizing the importance of practical ability, which is lacking in many children who study hard all day long.

Edison's grades were particularly poor when he was a child, and he was ridiculed by teachers as a child with a low IQ. However, his mother did not think so, nor did he lose confidence in the child. Under the careful guidance and education of his mother, Edison established his own laboratory. Do all kinds of science experiments every day and eventually become one of the greatest inventors in the world.

When Einstein was in elementary school, he was also considered by his teachers to be incompetent because of his poor academic performance. However, with his unremitting efforts, he created the theory of relativity with his ingenuity and made outstanding contributions to world science, becoming one of 20. One of the greatest scientists of the century.

Modern society is a society that pays attention to children's ability and comprehensive quality in all aspects. Grades are only a reflection of children's learning at one stage, and cannot prove children's comprehensive quality and ability. A child whose academic performance is not ideal may have unique advantages in hands-on practice. Therefore, parents cannot unilaterally pay attention to the child's score and ignore the child's overall development.

Parents should pay attention to discovering their children's potential and ability, break through the shackles of traditional educational concepts, and list children's hands-on ability education as an important subject for teaching children.

Method 2: Believe that the child can do it

The knowledge that children learn from books is only theoretical. In order for children to truly transform knowledge into their own experience and wealth, parents must believe that their children can do it. Only when parents believe that their children are geniuses can children truly become geniuses.

The process of practice is a test of children's comprehensive ability, and children can truly discover and understand themselves in practice. If a child has no confidence in himself, he will not dare to try or be afraid of failure. Parents should not be cynical about this, but should encourage and support the child, and let the child affirm his ability. With the trust and encouragement of parents, the quality of children will continue to improve. Therefore, in order to cultivate children with both knowledge and ability, parents must give their children full trust and believe that they can do it.

Hemingway is a famous American novelist, and his father's educational method seems to be more unique. He taught Hemingway Jr. both rigorous and flexible, and he would change the way he did it at any time depending on the situation. He believes that relying on others for everything will stifle the child's talent and prevent it from making a difference.

So, when little Hemingway was 4 years old, his father said to him seriously: "Son, don't follow me all the time, just go play by yourself!" Then he gave little Hemingway a fishing rod and encouraged him to say: "You If you can, go for it yourself." Later, his father gave him another shotgun. With the guidance and encouragement of his father, little Hemingway quickly became hooked on fishing, hunting and exploring.

In the end, with the trust of his father, Hemingway grew up healthy and applied his knowledge to the creation of novels. With the help of his rich life experience, he completed many outstanding works.

In the process of hands-on practice, children will develop an independent spirit and a sense of innovation. When parents communicate their trust to their children, the children will establish a mentality of "I can do it", and will continue to confirm this feeling in practice, and finally achieve a great cause.

The ultimate goal of children learning book knowledge is to use it in real life and become the foundation and capital for themselves to be based on society. Therefore, it is not enough to have knowledge, but also to learn to concrete knowledge into practical and operational practice. This is the real purpose of learning. Children's evaluations of themselves are often not objective and accurate enough, and they need to obtain positive evaluations of themselves from their parents.

Therefore, the attitude of parents is particularly critical for children. When the child's confidence is low, parents should not be stingy with their own trust and tell the child: "You can do it."

Method 3: Reduce children's dependence on parents

If children have a great sense of dependence on their parents, rely on their parents for everything, and shirk their parents even if they can do things by themselves, they will become mentally lazy, and it will be difficult to consciously practice them, even under the supervision of their parents. Also unwilling to do it.

Parents should reduce the urge to do things for their children. In life, as long as the child can do it, let the child do it by himself; in learning, try to let the child do it by himself. For example, when the child is doing homework, parents should not interfere , so that children can better understand and digest the knowledge they have learned, so that children will gradually get rid of their dependence on parents and have better practical ability.

Wang Wei's father has a set of his own theory of teaching children. His most basic educational philosophy is: adults don't care about children's affairs, let the children do it themselves.

One day, Wang Wei encountered a mathematical problem and asked him about it. He just said three sentences to the child: "One is to look at what the teacher says, the other is to do what the definition theorem says, and the third is Just do what the example problem does.”

Wang Wei began to not understand the meaning of his father's words, and his father patiently told the child: "It is more important to tell you the method than to tell you a hundred answers. If you just tell you the answer, you won't be able to do it next time, because you have never been to your father since then. With dependence." Wang Wei understood his father's words and solved the problem independently through his own ability. 

Wang Wei's father knew his children very well, and with just a few words, he easily changed the child's dependence. This is something every parent should learn from. Reducing children's dependence on parents in learning can really help children improve their hands-on ability. Give children full freedom and reduce their dependence on their parents. Children will exercise their hands-on ability under the hands of their parents, and become excellent children with a unified theory and practice.
