Is your child’s “three minutes hot”? congratulations

Maomao is 8 years old. Today he wants to learn to play the piano, tomorrow he wants to learn hip-hop dancing, and the day after tomorrow he is clamoring for his mother to sign him up for painting lessons. A few days ago, I was watching a TV show with my family. He was attracted by the poetry recitation in the show, and his father specially signed him up for a recitation class. As a result, after just two classes, Maomao didn\’t want to go. \”He is curious and interested in everything, but he just can\’t hold on for long, like a bear breaking a stick.\” Maomao\’s mother was afraid: Maomao was like a little bear breaking corn, looking good at this or that, but in the end he was empty-handed. Children\’s \”three-minute fever\” causes headaches for many parents. Because, once this label is attached, it seems to mean that your child does things in an inconsistent manner, likes the new and dislikes the old, and has no long-term potential. In fact, \”three minutes of heat\” is not that terrible, and it can\’t even be said to be a bad thing. why? First of all, it is normal for children to \”heat up for three minutes\” when doing things. Children need to be exposed to more things to learn. If they only focus on one thing, it means blocking out other things, which is not conducive to children\’s broadening of their horizons and increasing their knowledge. Research has found that the attention span of children of each age group is different. The younger the child, the harder it is to maintain attention. We cannot ask children to be as focused as adults. After all, they are in the \”blank sheet\” stage, and everything is being explored and learned. Secondly, \”Three Minutes of Heat\” is the process of children discovering their interests and hobbies. The child may seem naughty and rebellious, but in fact he is in a period of strong desire to explore. Only by actively trying can they discover what they like, which is a process full of expectations and fun. On the other hand, adults, as they grow older, are more and more able to weigh the pros and cons, and are less and less afraid to try new things. Because of the fear of being rejected and knowing that I am not perfect or good enough, I slowly lose the courage to try. The editor\’s aunt likes calligraphy, but doesn\’t want to learn it from a teacher. She said that her writing was not good and she was afraid that the teacher would laugh at her. Thirdly, parents should not be overly worried and anxious about their children’s “three-minute heat”. As their children grow older, they will slowly discover their interests. On the one hand, we must respect our children, and on the other hand, we can also slowly guide our children to \”concentrate\”. When your child is interested in something but quickly gives up, try to encourage him to keep trying and be brave. Every time my cousin Youyou goes to a bookstore and sees a picture book she likes, she must ask her mother to buy it for her. But after buying it home, she reads it in a minute or two and doesn’t want to read it a second time. She says, “Those stories are too simple. ”. Until one time, Yoyo\’s mother asked her, \”Do you know why the fox didn\’t plant corn earlier?\” Yoyo couldn\’t answer at once. Then, she found the picture book and studied it carefully for a long time… Discovering new interests in the ordinary things that we take for granted is what we need to guide our children to do. On the basis of respecting children, let them slowly understand the meaning of persistence. Understand the frustration and even failure you may face when doing something. Finally, on some level, we have to learn from our children. you findwithout? Those who are \”three minutes hot\” are often curious and passionate about life, and they are also the most energetic people. They are full of curiosity and thirst for knowledge, and keep an open mind to the unknown. Instead, this is what we need to learn from our children. In the beginning, we knew nothing about the world. When we hear and see, we are pleasantly surprised. We go from hobbling, to walking, to running. Fall down and get up again along the way. Until we become adults. We hear and see, but become blind to it. We evaluate something by \”is it useful\” rather than \”is it interesting\”. At this point, maybe we have to learn from our children.
