How to say that children heard

Sometimes you tell something to the child and see that he just does not hear you, does not perceive what you try to tell him. It is necessary to come to mutual understanding and to achieve that the child heard you.


1. Talk to the child sincerely and friendly, directly looking to him in eyes. Sit down that your views were at one level. You say accurately and clearly that you want to inform the child. Avoid allegories and generalizations. Talking to the kid, do not issue many commands at once: "Undress, wash up hands and sit down to have dinner". The baby can become puzzled, do it step by step.

2. Requests are direct and indirect. If the first calls for immediate action, then over the second it is possible to reflect. Whether "You will bring order to the room?". Hearing such phrase, the child thinks: "No, I will not clean up, and so will descend". And here the request formulated differently will force the kid to begin to work. Tell in a different way: "Bring order to the room, and we will go for a walk". The child accurately understands what he needs to make, plus he has an incentive to execute an order of parents as soon as possible is a walk.

3. If the child goes obstinate and specially pretends that he does not hear, or frankly ignores you, act by a method: "did not hear – did not receive". For example, did not go behind milk to shop, so did not receive some pancakes for dinner. Did not learn lessons in time – missed the interesting movie. Only do not forget that this method has to work also in the positive direction. If the child executed your assignment, you, in turn, encourage it for it. Thus, the kid will understand that to parents it is necessary to listen, and is simply unprofitable to ignore their requests.

4. If you want the child to hear you, learn to listen to him actively. Do not wave away from him, reasoning it with the employment or fatigue. It is important to child to know that parents are interested in him, actively listen, understand and sympathize with it. Communicate more often with the child, be interested in his life, progress and hobbies. Turn facing children's feelings, to emotions and experiences and the child will answer you with the same.
