Children, as well as adults, face difficulties in returning from vacation. Of course, their main vacation is a summer vacation. And after long and bright holidays, the guys are eager to go to school on 1 September to meet their kind friends and comrades in order to exchange impressions to show themselves grown up and mature, and to marvel at classmates.
But already on the second of September problems begin. I want to continue the celebration of life, but we must radically reorganize into the gray everyday life of endless lessons, homework, public works.
So how do you return the student to the rhythm of their business life?
Excuse me, but who said that vacations are endless fussing on the couch in front of the TV, computer games until midnight or bathing until blue in the nearby ponds?
No, dear parents. You absolutely misunderstand the wonderful word "vacation". Vacation – it’s just a proportional change in the student’s workload and activity on interests. If in the days of training most of the time is devoted to the training itself and only a few hours are allocated to positive rest, it is during the holidays that most of the time should be devoted to your favorite pursuits. But also to throw books, where far away, it is not necessary!
To return to school was not painful or even pleasant, one should follow certain recommendations, the implementation of which will allow the child to have a great rest and not lose, worked out during the academic year "labor" habits.
Sleep mode should not be disturbed even in summer carefree time. Remember that sleep for the future is not possible, and sleep off for "undersleep" during training everyday life, too, do not work. It takes 8-10 hours to recover completely.
The big error of the parents is that they "suddenly" allow their child to sit at the computer monitor, already, until the dawn, they say, vacation after all. And tomorrow they are allowed to lie in bed until noon and longer, they say, let them rest before their studies.
It is the night vigil and will not allow the child to rest, but rather pushes all the energy out of him and he will return to school tired of rest, which will undoubtedly affect his academic performance and active life.
It is only at first sight a winged phrase: "We were not asked anything!", has a truthful character. Asked, still as asked!
At the end of the school year, for sure, the teachers tried with the homework of the summer: reading books, collecting herbarium, solving problems in entertaining mathematics, essays on historical sites, TRP standards, geographical photo-sets and other creative-cognitive tasks. But for some reason these very important and most interesting "little ones" are left unattended, both for the pupils themselves and for their parents, and are perceived as unnecessary.
It’s not a bad idea to pull up the mathematics, remember the rules of the Russian language, learn English.
Brains, as well as muscles wither without a load, and, consequently, the resumption of training and brainwashing will cause not only a negative perception of the educational material, but also a physical malaise. And this state will continue until the training "training" will not enter the usual rhythm of student everyday life.
Home affairs and social work
Dear parents, and nobody canceled house chores! Ordinary children’s household chores should not be written off, even on the contrary, it is possible to entrust additional tasks to the child, since he has plenty of free time and help to parents is an important component of the upbringing of the younger generation.
By the way, if during the school year the student was responsible for "Living Corner" or "Winter Garden", then it is absolutely unacceptable to forget about animals and plants. These wards, they are alive, and even in summer need constant care.
Movement and pastime in the open air
It is absolutely necessary to push the child to mobile games, active walks, sports competitions and not only as a fan, but also as a participant. For this, it is parents who, I stress, should, by personal example and even some degree of coercion, make the child lead an active lifestyle.
Of course, it’s easier to give a decision about your own pastime at the mercy of the child, but this experiment will end with a choice lamentably.
The choice of the child should be accompanied by small parental cunnings and pedagogical wisdom. It is necessary to make sure that the child, under the strict control of the parents, chose exactly what parents think is necessary, and not what the "eagle-tails" will accidentally drop out.
Summer activity is the key to success of the forthcoming academic year. By all means, but by diplomatic methods, reduce passive rest.
It would be great if the vacation time of children coincided with the leave of parents. Then rest in the country, on the southern coast, in overseas countries, and anywhere, just to stay away from televisions and monitors, away from video views and computer games.
Communicating children with parents in a close family circle will bring maximum benefit to both the child and the whole family as a whole.
Soon to school
Summer will fly by unnoticed. But in the last few days of August, the regime of being a student must be somewhat tougher. No excuses, all in time: and sleep, and household chores, and walks and increased time for doing a summer homework.
Then the first day of September without stress for the body will smoothly flow into school everyday life. After a competent rest, of course, your pupil can not be a round-robin student, but he must be good!
