How Character Is Developed

Character formation cannot be taught. It comes from experience and not from explanation.” – Dr. Maria Montessori

What Really Matters

What’s important in life is in discovering your “special” gifts and using them to help the world become a better place. It is not so much the honors, awards and the grades.

How to Praise Your Child

Kids who are overpraised as smart may be afraid from challenges because they feel they might make mistakes and not to be told smart. However, children must be praised for their efforts. “Doing your best” promotes autonomy and ability.

How to Correct Your Child

To correct your child from their mistakes, do it kindly. Smile and hug him while saying your correction.

Children who have lesser sleep are fatter!

Loss of sleep is a cause of obesity. If they don’t have enough sleep they will feel lazy to move and act during daytime.

How to Encourage Your Child

Praise your child specifically. Tell him where he is good at. But do not tell him where he is bad at. Encourage him by saying “I know if we do this thing (a task that will improve his performance), it will be easier for you.” Never say , “You are not good at this.”

The brain is like a muscle

The brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it so it will get stronger. You exercise your brain by thinking. Doing one’s homework would make his brain grow strong so he will be able to think great thoughts.

Be a Good Example to Your Child

Children will reflect the adults around them. So if you want to teach being respectful be respectful yourself. If you want to teach neatness, be neat yourself. Whatever they learn from you they will do to others as well.

PRAISE YOUR CHILD SPECIFICALLY

Children above 7 years old know if your praise is sincere or not. When you encourage your child mean it from your heart. Make your praise specific too. When you praise him, praise the details of his works. He will remember them forever!

Do Not Overburden Your Child

Do not overburden your child so he will be successful. Divide new learning skills into small segments so that it will be easy for him to excel in it. Avoid over-stimulating the child. Do not “keep him busy” and avoid the “nothing to do time”. The “nothing to do time” which is pressure-less and stress-less can be the most creative time of all. It can be a time where he can relaxedly bond with the family. It can be a time where he can just play as he wants and still feel fulfilled. It can be a time of exploring new things spontaneously.

Allow your child to have a real FREE time. That time can be the opportunity for a breakthrough in his life.
