Parents do not have to wait until the child is old enough to go to school that parents pay attention to the issue of educating children about daily living habits. On the contrary, if before the age of 1, children can master and practice well, the future will be easy to develop in all aspects.
Children will “own” a good health, when they can maintain good habits from an early age. Not only reduce the possibility of disease, but also enhance the development of thinking and life skills such as language skills, action skills,…
To form good living habits, children need to go through a period of practice and perseverance. At the same time, the companionship to educate and guide children from parents is very important.
Because under the age of 1, children’s awareness is not yet mature enough to solve problems on their own. However, the ability to absorb and imitate in children is very strong. Based on this advantage, parents can easily guide children. From there, children will develop comprehensively physically, intellectually and morally.
Many research results have proved that there are 3 basic habits that children can practice as early as possible, especially before 1 year of age. Parents need to pay attention to timely educate their children, otherwise it will be very difficult to teach and develop later.
Healthy eating habits should be established for children before the age of 1 year. Because health is a necessary condition to create a healthy and sustainable future for children. Most parents want their children to grow up to be comprehensive, with adequate nutrition.
However, parents need to be right with their thoughts, choosing food for children is not as important as building healthy eating habits for children.
Food preferences in each stage of the child’s development, will make the child not have a fixed in daily dishes. However, eating habits will stick with children throughout adulthood. Parents actively train their children right from the first steps of their development, children will have less trouble later on.
In addition, healthy eating habits also entail benefits for mental health. When children have an abundant source of energy, their spirit will also become more excited and comfortable.
On the contrary, if the child’s health has problems, the child will be in a state of irritability, sluggishness and lethargy. This is completely detrimental to the child’s development in the future, if parents still let it last.
Healthy eating habits from a young age, help children have a good physical and mental health.
Besides diet, sleeping together is a necessary condition for young children. To ensure the health of the child is not affected, leading to some diseases, parents need to take care of their children’s sleep carefully. The first is to form the habit of getting enough sleep and on time.
According to doctors, children need to make sure to sleep at least 8 hours a day. If not done correctly, children will easily have big changes in mental health, such as irritability, loss of appetite, weight loss, etc.
Starting from babies, parents should not let children sleep indiscriminately. Although a lot of sleep is a common feature in all children under 1 year of age.
However, if parents do not have a certain control, the child’s sleep will not follow a certain order. And this will jeopardize the child’s sleep quality and bad habits in the future.
In particular, some improper behaviors of parents, if not corrected right now, will directly cause a negative impact on children’s sleeping habits, such as rocking an infant. , patting the bottom or stroking the baby’s back often,…
Parents need to limit coaxing their babies to sleep by rocking and holding them too much. Thus, children will form a habit of dependence, which is not good for children’s sleep problems.
Usually, children are not until 2 or 3 years old when they have good control over their personal hygiene, urination or defecation. However, the time may be longer if parents do not educate their children early.
In fact, parents can apply the “familiar sound” measure to create awareness about personal hygiene for children under 1 year old.
Specifically, when the mother performs the behavior for the child to urinate or defecate, the mother can simultaneously emit a “shhh” sound signal that lasts and repeats many times. At this time, the child will form a conditioned reflex. So later on, as long as the child hears the familiar sound coming from the mother’s mouth, the child will immediately become aware of himself and perform the act of going to the toilet.
For children from 18 months and older, if the child is able to sit up firmly on his own, parents should train the child to go to the toilet through the potty. However, children should not abuse this tool excessively, leading to children having a habit of depending on it.
Therefore, parents should train their children to follow a specific routine in terms of personal hygiene, avoiding the situation that children urinate or defecate at will.
When children have a sense of personal hygiene, they will not go to the toilet “blasphemy”.
