FOLLOW THE CHILD
Children can develop a sense of trust when provided with reliable care and affection. As an adult , this is the assurance being expected to provide help to the child while he/she is a toddler and down the line up to 6 Years of age . This helps them to grow secure and develop a sense of personal control over physical skills and a sense of being independent.
According to many Psychologists and their work, the growth of a person is defined in 4 stages. Talking about the more sensitive period of a human is around 0 to 2 years is the age of observation. A child starts his/her observations from the stage of birth through his/her senses, even though his/her vision is not yet developed. At 1+ age, child tries to perceive expressions from his/her surroundings through his/her basic motor and sensory explorations (by touching and feeling the things).
Gradually, while they are around 2 to 3 years, a child tries to imply the acquired impressions by understanding and relating the language what the parents speak. He/She tries to recognise through pictures and tries to relate his/her acquired knowledge with other objects from surroundings. This is the stage when a child needs an environment which can stimulate the self thinking process, leading to development in his/her concentration levels.
As an adult , our responsibility is to provide a space for the child to discover and explore new things. This can be initiated by giving minimum positive statements to the child, which can trigger his/her thinking further rather than continuous instructions which literally confuses a child and subsides the self thinking abilities in him/her.
