Benefits of Spending More Time With Your Kids

Children need your time and attention. The time you spend with them is more valuable than anything you could ever buy them. Even at a very young age, children understand the value of attention from parents. The moments you spend with your children have many positive benefits in terms of their growth and development.

Communication
Believe it or not, spending time with your children helps cultivate better communication between the parent and child and more effective and clear communication from the child. It positively benefits all parties involved. The ability to communicate better could even help your child communicate with the manhattan sub zero repair service center if you needed to schedule a repair.

Bonding
When people of any age or relationship ate around each other they bond. There is no other way to have a close bond without being in each others presence. The development of the parent child bond is important because as children grow older communication can often become more difficult. Sometimes the awkwardness of the communication can lead to the termination of communication. As a parent, you don’t want that to happen. The earlier you start making time together a priority, the better. Communication and bonding is much better when it’s been practiced over time in a calm and natural manner.

Guidance
Spending time with your children also provides a form of guidance to them without being overly obvious. Through conversation, a variety of activities, and situations, parents can guide their children by modeling how to respond to different situations. Children learn by what they see. They get to see parents in action when they go places and participate in a variety of different activities. Just about any situation or activity can serve as a backdrop for a life classroom. Children model what they see. If they have a parent that can effectively handle a wide variety of situations they try to mimic and learn that skill as well.

There is no substitute for spending quality time with your children. The benefits are many. Children learn coping skills and life skills from watching their parents. They also determine how parents feel about them based on the amount of time a parent spends or doesn’t spend with them. Start making quality time a priority in your household. You will have happier healthier kids. Your kids will also learn how to express themselves better and you will build a bond that will continue to grow well into adulthood.

 

Back To School Shopping For Your Kids

Do you have kids that are eager beavers to go back to school?  Buying them school supplies can be daunting if you don’t know where to begin. Here are some tips for back to school shopping for kids while making sure that you stay within your budget.

Conversation starters

One thing a lot of parents worry about is the branding on clothing. at first I was against these, but after I bought a couple, I saw how much fun they had. They actually become the characters on these shirts. For back to school, they’re amazing, especially when kids are in a new school or new classes with new classmates. These will become a talking point. If they’re wearing one of these shirts, maybe another child will come up to them and say, “Hi, I play with those toys. My name is James.” and then they’ll connect with each other.

Find outfits that are going to work for them at school and play, indoor and outdoor and outfits that can stand the wear and tear of child’s play!

Involve your kids

Some kids would wear a Spiderman outfit every day if you let them.  Kids need to be involved because you actually need them to wear the clothes.

Give them some limited choices. For example, pick three shirt and ask which one they  would like the most, or their what are their favorite colors. Doing this will help make the morning go smooth.

If you have little girls who prefer to wear dresses, allow them to wear pretty dresses and some long socks or leggings too so they won’t get cold.

How Your Child Can Get The Most out of Day Care Nursery

A few simple day care nursery tips

Going to a day care nursery can be scary, especially for a sub-5 year old. It’s great they’re going, but are they getting the most out of the experience?

There’s no doubt they’ll grow and develop, but there are some things you can do to help that process, and even experience some wonderful things yourself.

If you’re looking for some ideas to help your child get the most out of nursery, you’re in the right place. Let Sandhills Day Nursery Birmingham show you how:

Review What They’ve Learned

When they’re at home, go over the things they learned that day (and previous days as well).

Draw, play, and create with them. Reinforce the ideas, knowledge and concepts they’ve grasped.

Sing the ABC song; give them math’s problems; help them arrange fridge magnets.

Let them teach you what they’ve learned; get messy with finger paint; play with blocks and brio, etc.

At home, going over the things they’re currently learning —whether that’s the alphabet, countries of the world or simple math’s—is extremely helpful to improve their preschool nursery experience.

Learn More

Although going over what they’ve learned is great, learning new things with them is even better. They can then go back to day care nursery and maybe teach others their newfound knowledge.

Try reading and writing with them, or simply find answers to the never-ending stream of ‘Why’s’!

Stay in The Loop

What are they doing in preschool nursery? What are they learning? What new friends do they have?

Becoming a part of not only your child’s time at nursery, but the community’s as well is a great way to improve the experience for everyone.

And instead of only dropping your child off and picking him/her up later, stick around for a while to see how they’re getting on; talk with some of the parents about their time; ask the staff how he or she is progressing.

At Sandhills day nursery Birmingham, we regularly discuss with parents their child’s progress and how their child is settling in, as well as their education. Childcare is important to us, and we base these discussions on their relationships with the staff and other children, their participation in activities, familiarity with routines and the whereabouts of resources.

Arrange Playdates (with Children From the Nursery)

Playdates are a brilliant way to help your child get the most out of day care nursery; they help strengthen the relationships they build with other children —crucial to their progress.

And instead of being the paint-partner or toy-teammate, you can watch him or her interact with another child and see how they’re getting on; how they play, talk, share, etc.

Day care nursery in and of itself is a great experience, and a critical learning curve. The amount of learning and growing they do in these years is astronomical, so making it the best possible experience is key.

Hopefully these 4 ideas can help you to help your child not only do well in nursery, but excel!
