Best Bedtime Story: Toy Box Laughs
Dingding, my son, always likes to throw rubbish around, and the toys he has played are not sorted out in time. Every time I say, "Dingding, throw the rubbish into the trash can!" and "Dingding, put the toys back to the toy box!" but he seems to be used to action, and he can't remember it, so I always follow him like his entourage, picking up the garbage he has thrown down and toys he has played with at any time.
I have tried many ways to change this situation. Every time before playing with toys, I said to my son, "after playing, we will return the toys to the toy box, or we will not play next time." He promised well, but after playing, he threw them everywhere. In a rage, I put away all his toys and didn't allow them to play. My son cried for a long time, and finally began to clean up reluctantly. Hard way doesn't work well, I decided to implement a reward policy, every time the garbage is thrown into the trash can or toys are returned to the toy box, I will reward my son with a small sticker. But in this way, my son didn't pay for it after only a few days, which made me helpless.
One day, I went to the supermarket and saw a frog like garbage can on the shelf. The garbage can be thrown into the frog's open mouth. At the first light of my eyes, I asked the frog to go home. I couldn't wait to say to my son, "look, son, there's a little frog in our house. He hasn't eaten yet. He must be hungry. Let's find something to eat for him. He likes to eat garbage most. Go and find it!" my son was excited and threw a piece of candy paper into the frog's mouth, Also said: "little frog, eat quickly!" see my son's appearance, I went on to say: "next time, let's give all the garbage to little frog to eat, he will definitely thank us." Listen to my son and say hello.
From then on, it became his favorite thing to look for garbage to feed the little frog every day. Inspired by the trash can, I pasted my facial features on both sides of the toy box, with a happy face and a sad face. Every time my son plays with toys and throws them all over the place, I turn the toy box to the sad side and imitate the sad expression of the toy box and say to my son, "it's so sad that there is no good friend in the toy box. Let's send his good friend back quickly!" then my son immediately picks up the toys in the toy box. When my son finished tidying up the toys, I quickly turned the toy box to the happy side, imitating the happy expression of the toy box and said, "ah! He found a good friend with toys, so happy in his heart, thank you!" my son laughed happily. After several reminders, my son can take the initiative to return the toys to the toy box, and the happy faces of the toy box are more and more day by day! In this way, the original difficult cleaning process has become an interesting and fun game, in which my son enjoys himself and unconsciously develops a good habit!
The cultivation of good behavior needs to be practiced and strengthened in daily life. In the meantime, the children will feel boring, and the parents' coercion and inducement often have little effect, even cause the children's antipathy. The game is the most favorite activity of the child, which is most easily accepted by the child. Parents may as well create anthropomorphic game plots with the help of lively and interesting games, stimulate the interest of the child's activities, and let the child experience and imitate good behaviors repeatedly in the game. This can not only increase the interest of life activities, but also make children unconsciously develop good behavior habits in the process of playing games.
