|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
When you are considering new scruples for your children, it is important to take the time to think about what you really want them to learn. The majority of successful people will tell you that they did not do very well at school, that they were bored by the curriculum, or felt that the lessons were not really going to be very useful for their lifestyles. Although only successful people really get to be able to speak out like this, many others also feel the same about their time in the classroom. If you decide that this type of education is not what your child needs, then you might consider stepping up their Queensland education with a new type of learning, that is just as focused upon the needs of the child as it is upon the demands of the curriculum.
Teaching your child important values
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
What the current curriculum neglects to teach children is any values, or rather about the importance of having values in modern society. History can teach you a lot about the movement of people around the world, or about the posturing of politicians, but it frequently neglects to teach people any strong moral lessons about history, and about the modern world place in history. It is no big surprise then that many young people feel alienated from those around them, and often say that government and local society are corrupt and immoral. Without a proper background in value based education, it is no wonder that children find it hard to understand their place in the world.
Learning about morals and ethics
In order to understand what motivates children, and to help them learn more about their place in the world, it is important to consider exactly what is missing from modern education. Many people might suggest that the problem lies with the way that values and social interaction are taught in schools, and the fact that there is no religious learning may be at the root of all these problems. In order for children to start developing a moral sense through learning, parents should consider placing their children with specialist religious schools, where young people can start taking a number of lessons about society, how to behave in the community, and why it is still important to have values, even in the modern world.
|Tips#5: Read It Again And Again And Again|
|Your child will probably want to hear a favorite story over and over. Go ahead and read the same book for the 100th time! Research suggests that repeated readings help children develop language skills.|
|Tips#6: Talk About Writing, Too|
|Draw your child's attention to the way writing works. When looking at a book together, point out how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.|
