Teach Values, Patience

Teach Values, Patience - Patience is one of the hardest lessons to teach children, and besides being impatient by nature and want something immediately, children do not understand the concept of time. For them five minutes, an hour or a while, is an abstract concept that can not understand, why insist again and again until they get what they are claiming.

Thus, and despite the redundancy, to teach patience, parents need to be patient. Some guidelines and educational methods will help us in this task.

How to educate children in patience

The maturity of the child is important when patients make them. A child in early childhood education with a high level of selfishness and the need for all the attention focused on him, it will cost more. In any case, it is important from the early stages and lovingly teach the value of patience to children:

1. The example of parents is crucial. If we lose the nerves before a small jam, we express how much that bothers us wait a trade row or interrupt others when they speak, we can not expect our children to behave with patience in everyday situations.

2. When the child interrupts us as we speak or expect us to stop any activity to assist, we must remain calm and once we finished what we do, engage him to understand why and in what situations has to be expected. If at this time, we shout or scold you and then explain why not try to be patient, his behavior hardly be changed.

3. To teach him to be patient we can begin to wait for a moment before solving a problem, provided it is not an emergency, so you understand that not we will go running every time you call.

4. If you want the child to wait, it is more beneficial to use concrete and not abstract examples. That is, avoid saying 'in five minutes' and used 'when you pick up the toys' or 'when we finish dinner' so you can understand how long we have to wait.

5. If we know that touch us wait in places like the doctor or drive, we carry games, stories and activities so that the child will not be done as long the wait.

6. games with several participants or team sports, will help you understand you have to wait your turn or have a role within the group and has to wait for the right time to implement it.
