Here are some ways to educate children at home:
1. Educating to be independent at an early age
You can develop an independent attitude since your child is an early age. Stop protecting your child, when your child socializes with his peers, you only provide supervision without restraining or protecting the mistakes he makes, cultivate the habit of being able to recognize his belongings to look after and tidy up after playing. When entering school, give pocket money and try to provide direction in using the allowance such as setting aside for saving.
2. Educate to have positive curiosity
Curiosity in childhood is indeed high in some objects or events that he just wants to know about, so that you can learn to provide direction in finding answers to his questions by connecting daily activities that are easy for him to understand. If your child’s question enters a confusing explanation, just give the gist of it a few words to make it easier to understand and direct the explanation to the positive.
3. Educate to argue
Allow your child to argue. An important life skill is the ability to engage people of all ages in conversation. Giving your child the opportunity to have an opinion makes his self-confidence grow even though in general you often ignore it because you think that your opinion is always right. Silence your selfishness to set a good example in hearing what people think. So that mutual respect can be instilled in your child’s age.
4. Educate children to live simply
Many facts show that successful children used to be in simple families. This is because the simplicity that children experience is one of their life styles. Giving artificial suffering does not mean your child has to suffer, but your child is conditioned to be completely limited in wanting something so that it triggers your child to work hard, be disciplined, help others and care about their environment. When your child lightens up his toys, you can provide several challenges such as toys that will be given after your child gets used to cleaning their room every day.
5. Educate children to be good role models
If your child wants to have a good personality while his family does not support him with daily activities towards a good example, it is a wasted job. So that those of you who want to educate children to be good role models must start with the best you and your family. Give examples of the best daily activities so that your child’s example will emulate your behavior. An example in real life is when you forbid your child to talk while eating while you have a conversation while eating, this is a bad role model.
