Arranging Play Dates For Kids

1

Throughout the early years of your child, it is you and your spouse who are his sole companions at home.  It’s quite all right to keep him in the house for the first year since he’s still too small and fragile to play on his own; however, once your child reaches a certain age he will need to engage with other children his age.  What you can do is take him for a play date with kids of your friends or with kids of parents who you met at the local daycare or child care center.  The concept of a play dates might be unfamiliar for some people, so lets have a look at what exactly what is a play date.

To define, play dates prearranged appointments for children (ideally of the same age) to get together and play for a few hours.  This is a common practice among families since both parents normally have to work and yet don’t want their children to be left unattended.  TV shows, news, and the like being disseminated through mainstream media have shown the negative consequences of leaving children at home without anyone but a nanny.  So, to prevent them from happening parents would take their kids to kid-friendly places such as day care centers, parks, and museums where play dates normally are held.

Another fun thing about play dates is being able to interact with other parents and building friendships with them.  Kids who are brought to play dates for the first time would usually have their parents stay so that they can encourage them to mingle with other kids either one-on-one or in groups.  Parents at the same time can spend time talking and sharing stories with other parents present at the play date.  If you’re planning on bringing your child to a play date arranged by your friends or are planning on a play date yourself, it’s important to take note of certain things so that it’ll be a success not only for you but for your child most of all.

Since your child is old enough to know what he wants during this time, you can ask him first if he would like a particular friend to come over and play with him.  You can observe during one of his days in day care or in preschool who he usually plays and interacts with.  You can then invite your child’s friends and the parents as well for a fun play date.  When doing this, try to invite kids who are of different age groups.  This allows your child to direct and teach the younger kids how things work like how this toy is used or where to go when they need to go to the bathroom.  This will give him the feeling of being the big kid in the room.

Remember not to make play dates last for more than 2 to 3 hours and not to invite to many kids to a play date.  you’ll not only have a bunch of kids running around the house but also a bunch of cranky and sleepy kids who want to go home and take their naps already.

Challenges in Child Care: Lying

0

Listening to a child lie can be very disturbing for parents, but it is a common part of child growth. Below are some facts to help caregivers and parents manage the challenge of lying.

Keep your child’s age in mind. In their age, what seems as lying to adults may in fact reflect the child’s dreaming, a dynamic imagination, or wish to please their parents. For instance, preschool child may lie in the perspective of telling tall tales or as an automatic reply for approval as if when parents ask ‘Did you eat all the cookies?’  The answer is “No!” They also might lie to get their own way, for example they may say to the sitter: “My mom told I do not have to clean up my toys.”. On the contrary, grown-up children comprehend explicitly that lying is incorrect but still might do so to stay out of a problem, have what they want; make an impression on people, gain admiration, or defend someone.

Stick to the facts. For toddlers, just stick to the facts in a cool manner. For instance, in reply to “I can run faster than papa!” say, “your legs are smaller than papa’s I think it would be difficult to do, but as you grow big, you perhaps will be able to dash faster than Papa!”

Do not set your child up to lie. If you find that all of the chocolates are finished, or there is a big stain on the rug and your kid is the only one around, do not make them tell a lie by asking if they did it or not. They will never confess and tell the lie. Just make them know politely that you know.

Make the consequence fit the response. With grown-up children, you can have conversations about telling lie. Make them clear that if they do something erroneous but are truthful about it, the outcome will not be severe than if they do some mistake and lie about it. Be steady in your conduct of lying.

Praise truthfulness. Keep in mind that your child is always seeking for your sanction, and this is every so often, why they lie in the first place. When they do something wrong and are truthful, admit this behavior and help them come out from the situation.

Teach empathy. Say to your child that it is essential for them to tell the truth, so they could be trusted. Try to assist them observe things from the other side, asking them that how would they feel if someone had lied to them.

Look for the origin. Think about the reason, why your child is lying. Consider their stress level at home, peers, or the sternness of your response to their lying. Converse with them about the ground that compel them to lie about certain things.

Model honest behavior. If your child is lying very often, this mock-up to them that lying is good. Moreover, if they find you telling a lie, do not hesitate to discuss it with them and point out your own mistake. Each of these experiences will help them out learning about right and wrong.
