Кризис семи лет

Кризис семи лет

Как и кризис трех лет, этот кризис сопровождается резкой переменой в поведении ребенка: он не реагирует на замечания взрослых, пререкается, кривляется. Начинается это обычно с поступления в школу, вследствие смены его основной деятельности с игровой на учебную. Однако кризис может начаться и в пять с половиной, и в восемь лет. Его основная причина — переоценка ребенком самого себя и своих способностей...

«Дети, в школу просыпайтесь!»

«Дети, в школу просыпайтесь!»

В какую конференцию ни зайду, возле какой группы мам на школьном дворе ни остановлюсь, все обсуждают одно: как облегчить себе и детям утренние подъемы в школу, чтобы без истерик, вовремя и не лететь потом сломя голову.
Не думаю, что открою Америку, но некоторые аспекты проблемы все же имеют решение.
Все уже слышали про циклы сна...

О скуке и длинных каникулах

О скуке и длинных каникулах

А вы помните, что раньше этих безумных посленовогодних двух недель не было? 31 декабря было укороченным рабочим днем. Первого января народ приходил в себя, а второго — бодро (или не бодро) шагал на службу.
Каникулы были только у школьников. Везука была тем, у кого имелись в наличии неработающие бабушки — дедушки. Тогда появлялся шанс сходить хотя бы разочек в театр, на елку, просто у бабушки погостить...

Education boosts brain function long after school

Education boosts brain function long after school

European populations are growing older on average, a trend that could pose serious challenges to health care, budgets, and economic growth. As a greater proportion of a country’s population grows into old age, average cognition levels and national productivity tend to decline, and the incidence of dementia increases.

«Finding ways to improve the cognition of seniors is of central importance to the economic well-being of aging countries,» says IIASA researcher Vegard Skirbekk, who worked on the study with researchers Nicole Schneeweis and Rudolf Winter Ebmer at Linz University

The study exami...

New Report Shows Almost All Kids’ Meals Fail to Meet Nutritional Standards

New Report Shows Almost All Kids’ Meals Fail to Meet Nutritional Standards

The new report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest on kids’ meals shocked me. First, I was surprised to learn that of the 3,498 meal combinations in restaurant chains evaluated by the authors of the report, 97 percent do not meet nutrition standards for children’s meals.

Toddlers and sleep

Toddlers and sleep

If ‘toddlers and sleep’ sounds like a contradiction in terms, have a read of these tips from Caroline’s Angels.

We sometimes wonder if the words ‘toddler’ and ‘sleep’ belong in the same sentence. It seems that we interact with many families that experience sleep difficulties with their toddler.

Some families explain that their toddler has never slept well and they have now decided to address their child’s sleep. Yet others tell us that as a baby, their child slept wonderfully and the difficulties that they are now experiencing are new.

There are many reasons why toddlers either do no...

Preparing your tween for her period

Preparing your tween for her period

I am feeling old. Not because the kids at school are finally getting to me but because my granddaughter is at menstruation age.

Over the weekend her mother – my second daughter – asked me for some advice on what to say to her. After four children (including three daughters), my daughter has finally realised I might know something about this motherhood lark.

This is what I said to her.

Paediatricians oppose school suspension, expulsion

Paediatricians oppose school suspension, expulsion

A group representing paediatricians saysdisciplining students with out-of-school suspension or expulsion is counter-productive to school goals and should only be used on case by case basis.

The policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that paediatricians familiarise themselves with the policies of their local school districts, and advocate for prevention and alternative strategies.

«The adverse effect of out-of-school suspension and expulsion on the student can be profound,» the experts wrote.

«Data suggest that students who are involved in the juvenile justic...
