It can be difficult for foster parents to have a good relationship with the child, but doing so is extremely important. The child is uncomfortable with the new environment, unusual for him, therefore it is difficult for him and his new parents at first to be open with each other. In other words, the relationship between the adoptive parents and the child begins with a feeling of discomfort. These relationships can become close and warm over time, but this is not easy to achieve.
Children experience heavy emotions when adoptive parents appear in their lives, so it may take them a while to get used to them.
Usually, parents know that they have a difficult relationship with the child, so they get used to the changes before the child. Parents prepare for this relationship before the child appears in the family. We can say that relations are developing even before its appearance. Continue reading
The methods of education differ not only in different cultures, but also in different families. However, parents still often use behaviors that, according to psychologists and educators, are outdated, inappropriate, or even dangerous for children. Consider a few habits that parents should discard.
1. Not enough time to sleep
Very often, parents in the daily routine of the child do not allocate enough time to sleep. There can be various reasons for this: parents may not attach much importance to the child’s sleep or overload him with various activities. One way or another, children do not get the necessary rest. Reducing sleep time, contrary to parental stereotypes, does not discipline the child and does not make him more flexible. Lack of sleep negatively affects the behavior of the child, suppresses mental functions and over time can lead to overweight. Experts recommend sleeping 8.5 hours a day for teens and 11-12 hours for children from 5 to 12 years. This means that if a 15-year-old needs to wake up at 7 a.m. to go to school, he should go to bed no later than 10.30 p.m., and a 10-year-old child – at 8 p.m. Continue reading

Each generation of parents has its own popular trends in parenting. Recently, around the world, the ideas of conscious parenting are gaining popularity. To comprehend their essence, you must first understand what awareness is.
What is mindfulness
In a world full of distractions, such as computers and mobile phones, it is very difficult to remain conscious. In everyday life, real chaos occurs in people’s thoughts. You can talk with the boss, but at the same time think about what to cook for dinner or what purchases to make on the way home. Many people are simply not able to focus on anything for more than a few minutes. Even trying to organize our work in such a way as to do things one by one, we mentally worry about what happened before or think about what we will do in the future. Continue reading
Many parents are afraid to take their child on trips if they have to fly. On a plane, a child may get sick, he may behave badly (especially if he is small), or any other problems may arise with him.
Consider a few recommendations on how to make the flight with the child as comfortable as possible.
Arrive at the airport in advance
Gathering in a hurry, you run the risk of being emotionally exhausted before the flight. If stress occurs at the beginning of the journey, then it is likely to persist until the end. In addition, it should be remembered that the excitement of parents is often transmitted to the child.
Therefore, try to avoid unnecessary stress and take more time to get to the airport. Make sure you have enough time to check in for a flight, buy food, go to the toilet with your child and other unplanned things. No matter how much time you need to get to the airport, plan one hour more. Continue reading
