Take your children to play in the children\’s paradise. There are two holes on the table inside the fake house in the children\’s paradise, which can just fit the ocean balls. After each son put in an ocean ball, there was no room for the third ocean ball in his hand. I was curious about what my son would do, so I watched him quietly. I found that he replaced one of the balls with the ball in his hand, found another ball in his hand, and used it to replace the other ball. This happened more than a dozen times, but it didn\’t bother him at all. Psychologically speaking, children have difficulty concentrating on repetitive things because they do not have enough willpower to control their attention. But in fact, children can easily get involved in things that interest them. Many boring things are difficult for adults to repeat over and over again, but they never tire of it. For example, fastening and untying buttons, fastening and untying again, such as putting toys in the storage bin and taking them out again, putting them in and taking them out again. \”Son, come here and play with this! Why are you just messing with those balls!\” I was watching with interest when my husband suddenly shouted, startled, and so was my son who was immersed in it. He looked up at his father and put down his hands. ball, going to play on the slide. I can\’t help but blame: Do you know! Montessori said that stopping children from repeating is a crime! My husband asked in surprise: Is it true? ? Of course it\’s true, but that\’s not what she said. She said, \”Repetition is a child\’s mental gymnastics.\” Adults always stand from their own perspective and believe that it is useless for children to repeat meaningless actions, so they subconsciously want to stop them. As everyone knows, although this simple repetition does not conform to the utilitarian view of adults, it is a way for children to grow. In the playground, we often see children playing with the same toy repeatedly, but they are often stopped by their parents. They loudly order from the side: \”Go and play with that one, go and play with this one.\” It seems that if you miss a toy, you will suffer a huge loss. They disturb the child\’s repetition and destroy the child\’s concentration and interest. This is the biggest loss. Various rocking cars are often placed in front of the supermarkets outside the community. The cute cartoon patterns and crisp children\’s songs attract the attention of many children. My son is no exception. He clamors to take this Thomas or that Radisson. I often wonder: Isn’t it annoying to have to do it every time I pass by? Once, I took my son to have a meal with my colleagues. When we passed by the entrance of a maternity and baby store, my son was attracted by the stroller and insisted on sitting on it. My colleague\’s son, who was more than a year older, was not interested. He glanced at the rocker and went to play with the airplane model in his hand. I couldn\’t help but curiously said: There are very few children who are not interested in this. A colleague said: He has studied this thoroughly, so now he is more interested in other things. It turns out that when her child was young, she also liked to ride on a rocking car, and liked to sit on it and then get off it, and then get off it and sit on it again. My colleague was not as impatient as other parents. She exchanged dozens of dollars for coins and took her children to ride on the rocking cars in the surrounding area. Staying with him, watching him, watching him go up and down, she wondered what he was experiencing. In fact, it doesn’t cost much to do this, but it can accompany your childrenAfter studying all the rocking cars, he later even knew which rocking car played what songs, which rocking car was more popular with children, and which rocking car was not stable and uncomfortable to sit on. Later, he rarely rode the rickshaw, but his concentration was best protected. I noticed that he took apart and reassembled the airplane model in his hand. He couldn\’t put it together at the beginning and then assembled it fluently. He was always immersed in it. Adults often wonder: Wouldn’t they find it boring if they always do the same thing over and over again? In fact, for children, repetition is not negative. The younger the child, the more so. They are born with the ability to make themselves happy to repeat. However, parents often look at repetition from their own perspective first, believing that endless repetition is meaningless and should be abandoned. Especially when this kind of repetition requires parental participation and companionship, such as listening to the same story, they will be even more impatient and think that the child\’s behavior is extremely boring and childish. In psychology, this kind of behavior of doing the same thing repeatedly is called \”repetitive behavior\”. Montessori called this behavior the intellectual gymnastics of a child\’s growth, and its importance is evident from this. Children\’s cognitive abilities are limited, and they cannot think through an object or a story as quickly as adults. They can only slowly understand and explore through repetitions. For them, every repetition brings new understanding and growth. As parents, we need to realize that repetition is a normal growth process for children. Through simple repetitions, he explores the changes that actions can cause and the effects that can be achieved, thereby initially understanding the cause-and-effect relationships of things. When a child repeats an action, it is not meaningless. In this process, the child is experiencing, thinking, and comprehending, and slowly his abilities are improved and he grows. Repetition is an expression of concentration. Why is it difficult for adults to repeat boring actions, but children can repeat them over and over again? Because children are born with the ability to focus on themselves. He may hold a toy and play with it for an hour, or he may read a picture book from cover to cover many times. This quality of high concentration is crucial for children\’s future learning and work. Repetition is an important stage in the formation of willpower. Repeated practice can bring children growth and confidence. Montessori believes that repeated practice is the most important stage in the formation of children\’s willpower. When children repeat the same action, they can not only understand things more comprehensively from a new perspective again and again, but they can also experience their own strength and strength. Being independent, they can control both things and their own actions, thus laying the foundation for the formation of willpower. In life, we often see children doing repetitive things, asking their parents to tell them the same story, play the same game, close the door and open it again. When performing these movements, children go from unskilled to proficient, and then to mastery, which is also of great significance to the growth of children\’s self-confidence. In this case, parents should realize that children’s repetition is not meaningless actions, but a meaningful experience and growth.. After realizing the importance of repetition to children\’s growth and that it can bring children a sense of achievement, independence, and security, when faced with children repeating, they can clearly understand that this is the best state of their behavior. Not only can they not No interruption, but give your child enough space and time to try. Movement and language are the manifestations of intelligence. All repetitive actions such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, and drawing are ways for children to develop their intelligence. In addition to recognizing their children\’s repetitions and not disturbing them, parents should also create conditions for their children to repeat themselves. For example, when a child wants to listen to a story repeatedly, parents can creatively tell the same story to the child in various tones. Repeated listening can not only allow children to understand the truth, but also allow some good words and sentences to be \”printed\” in their minds, repeatedly strengthened in the ocean of memory, and enrich their vocabulary reserves. Maybe one day, they can use these The words and sentences make up a more exciting story. Before the age of one and a half, children are in the sensory repetition period. They repeatedly suck their fingers and throw and pick up toys. Before the age of one and a half, they are in the experimental repetition period. They repeatedly play with an object and \”deal with\” it in various ways. Before the age of two, they are in the language repetition period. During this period, they \”talk, learn and sing\” the same content, and in the future, the children will repeat things they are interested in. This is an important way for children to develop their intelligence. Montessori said: Through spontaneous repetition, children not only develop their physical functions, but also their spiritual world grows satisfactorily through repeated concentration. Do you have the heart to be a hindrance to your child’s successful growth?
