Educatia

Fiul meu iubeste cartile in toate formele si toate marimile inca de cand avea cateva luni. Asa ca imediat ce am observat ca ne acorda atentie am inceput sa ii citim inainte de somnic. Si astazi are inca o curiozitate legata de o carte din cand in cand si ne aduce respectiva carte sa ii citim din ea. Incercam sa ii cultivam atentia asupra lucrurilor care nu sunt chiar atat de dinamice precum videourile. De cand cu izolarea acasa i-am comandat cateva carti pe care le-a imbratisat emotionat: Ursulet Fericit si Timid, Conni si cateva carti tematice. Pe Ursulet Bun il avea deja, iar cand i-au ajuns si cele doua se plimba cu ele prin casa strangandu-le in brate cu drag. Conni ma intreaba mereu despre ipostaze in care e fetita in carte. Si povestea e despre gradinita. Cartea despre vehicule este preferata lui. Cartile Usbourne erau interesante cand era foarte mic. Acum am observat ca nu mai prezinta interes asa mare. Mai sunt cartile de 2-3 ani care ii starnesc interesul pentru ca au forme si figuri si incearca sa isi defineasca universul. Evident copilul este fascinat si de imaginea dinamica: filme pentru copii. Dar daca nu vede televizorul deschis nu il cere sa fie deschis. Tocmai de aceea incercam in perioada asta ciudata sa facem copilaria sa ii fie totusi cu joaca si carti, nu cu uitat continuu la televizor.

Ca sa fiu sincera si eu eram fascinata de televizor cand eram mica si din moment ce si ai mei simteau nevoia de a urmari o stire, eram si eu pe acolo. Ei aveau doar doua ore de emisie pe zi in acele zile si parte erau stiri. Imi amintesc ca uram stirile in copilarie. Si fotbalul la fel. Am inca aceasta ura si nu pot privi stiri fara sa am o stare de iritare. Poate e tonul si pasiunea pretinsa pe care o simt din citirea acelor stiri. Poate ca e manipularea continua pe care o simt din partea prezentatorului. Totusi, oricare ar fi motivul, il las pe fiul meu sa se uite doar la muzica pentru copii si niste programe de copii. Si de cele mai multe ori incerc sa ii captez atentia asupra unor treburi foarte practice cum ar fi spalatul rufelor, al vaselor, curatenia sau ordinea prin casa. Acestea sunt zilele cand apelam la rabdarea lui sa invete decat sa stea in fata televizorului. Uneori ascultam muzica. Si danseaza pe aceasta muzica cum simte el. Daca incerc sa dansez cu el se uita ciudat la mine. Presupun ca nu o sa ma scoata vreodata in oras ca sa nu il fac de rusine.

Cum zilele de vara devin din ce in ce mai lungi si mai calde, incerc sa armonizez programul lui de plimbari pe afara si stat in casa. Are intre 10:00-12:00 activitati in casa si intre 16:00-18:00 de asemenea. In aceste perioade putem citi impreuna, desena sau uneori sa ne jucam cu masinutele lui. Nu prea ma pot lauda cu inventivitatea mea la capitolul joaca cu masinile. Cred ca prefer sa ii explic despre piesele masinii si sa nu creez o poveste despre parcursul masinii. Cred ca trebuie sa aiba si tatal lui niste treaba cu el.

Cum incercam sa ii mentinem interesul in jucarii uneori ascundem unele si apoi le redescopera dupa un timp. Adora sa le redescopere si sa isi aminteasca cum obisnuia sa se joace cu ele sau sa adapteze joaca cu ele la noi cai descoperite de curand cu alte jucarii. Spre exemplu daca masinile merg pe pereti, recent redescoperitul submarine ar face la fel desi inainte era scufundat in apa din cada. Si in aceasta dimineata s-a dus in sacul lui de jucarii si l-a luat pe Sven si apoi mi l-a aratat apoi pe cutia Frozen. Deci face legaturi intre cunostintele dobandite si noile descoperiri. Si uite asa devine un adult. Si se bucura de timpul petrecut la joaca, la citit, ascultat de muzica si dans. Si am uitat sa mentionez cataratul. Este acel moment cand fiecare scaun este o scara spre o tinta inalta. Pentru cei mici este foarte important sa vada cum se fac lucrurile in casa. Am scos scarile pentru ca reprezentau un potential pericol. Dar acum el incearca sa foloseasca tot ce are la indemana: tricicleta a fost o scarita spre un sertar inabordabil. Mintea lui functioneaza intr-un mod foarte creativ si este important sa vedem cum face conexiunile inainte sa le impunem limite.

Noi am fost crescuti cu ingradiri continue si ne-au trebuit cam treizeci de ani sa ne descoperim adevarata libertate. Eu am descoperit-o doar dupa ce l-am avut pe fiul meu. Acum inteleg ce poate face educatia pentru un viitor adult si cat de important este sa iti permiti sa descoperi universul pe masura ce cresti, nu mai tarziu. Avem nevoie sa ii lasam pe copii sa se dezvolte cu liberatea in minte indiferent de pandemie sau masuri totalitare, iar ei trebuie sa invete limitele prin explicatii

Education At Home

My son loves books in all shapes and sizes since he was few months old. So, as soon as he was giving us his attention we started reading him books before he went to sleep. Nowadays he is also curious about a book from time to time and he brings us something to read to him. We are trying to grow his attention to things that are not as dynamic as videos. Since the lockdown has started we have ordered for him a few books which he embraced with great emotions: Happy and Shy Bear, Conni and a few theme books. The Good Bear he already had, so when he received the other two, he would hold them and walk around the house with them. About Conni he is constantly asking about her situations depicted in the book. And the story is about kindergarten. The book on Vehicles is his favourite. He has learned all the vehicles depicted there and he would point them on the street. The Usbourne were interesting when he started discovering books. Now I noticed they are no longer interesting. And there are some 2-3 year old activity books which make him curious as they have shapes and babies drawn and this is how he is trying to define his universe. Obviously the kid is also fascinated by the dynamic image: kids movies. But unless he sees the TV on, he doesn’t ask for such. That is why during these strange days we try to make his childhood full of play and books, rather than constant tv watching.

To be honest I was mesmerized by the TV when I was little and since my parents had very little TV time, they would also allow me to watch. It was only two ours of television show during those days and some of it was made of news. I remember I hated news in my childhood. And football. I still have this hatred and I cannot watch news without getting irritated. Maybe it’s the tone and the false passion I get to feel from the reading of those news. Maybe it’s just the continuous manipulation I feel from the news anchor. However and whatever the reason I get to let my son watch only kids music and some kids shows. And most of the times I try to catch his attention at very practical things like laundry, dish washing, house cleaning or tiding up. These are the days when we get him to have patience to learn something else rather than staying in front of the tv. For example sometimes he likes to listen to music. And he dances to it so he really feels it. If I try to dance with him he looks at me in a funny way. I guess he won’t take me out any time soon so I don’t embarrass him.

As summer days are getting longer and warmer I try to get his schedule into regular outdoor activities as well as spending time indoor and playing. So he has 10:00-12:00 indoor activities and 16:00-18:00 same. During these times we can read together, draw or sometimes play with his cars. I can’t really say I am inventive with the cars. I guess I could explain him about pieces the car is made of and not really create a script about the car’s pass. I believe his dad must have his special time with him also.

As we try to keep him interested in toys all the time we put some toys away and then after a while he rediscovers them. He loves rediscovering them and remembers how he used to play with them or adapts them to recent tracks he took with the more actual toys. For example if the cars would crawl on walls, the recently rediscovered submarine would do the same although before he would be submerged in the bathtub. And this morning he went into his bag of toys and picked up Sven and then showed me on his Frozen storage box the Sven character. So he is making connections from his new or old learnings. This is how he grows into an adult.  He’s truly enjoying his time for play, reading stories, listening to music and dancing. And I forgot to mention the climbing. It’s the time when every chair is a ladder to a higher point. For the little ones it’s very important to see how things are done around the house. We took out the ladders as that would mean they would be in danger. But now he is trying to use all at hand: his tricycle was a ladder to an unreachable drawer. His mind works in a very creative way and it’s important to see how he connects the dots before putting boundaries.

We were raised in the continuous boundaries and it took us by 30sh to discover our actual liberty. I have only found it after having my son. Now I see what education can do to a later adult and how important it is to let yourself discover the universe while you are growing up, not later. We need to let our children develop with freedom in their minds no matter the pandemics or totalitarian measures and they need to learn the boundaries with explanations.
