6 audio books that will help in training.
On the nose a time when students write a test and the annual tests and pass ONE exam, choose universities. The child in this period it is extremely important that parents are not pressured, and was just in the neighborhood and treat all of the trouble with understanding. We have chosen six great audiobooks that will help to support the teenager, reports Rus.Media.
1. When exams very soon
The book “What to do if you are waiting for the exam” is written for students, but for parents it is no less useful. Psychologist Lyudmila Petranovskaya says, how to pass the exam, as to learn the rules or take using mnemonics, what if all went according to plan, and oral examination are generally felled. Even now, when before the exams a few weeks, need to listen to this book: it is short and it is the only thing.
Petranovskaya reminds parents that the development starts from the point of rest, as children grow up (and not just physically) is not due to the fact that we pull it by the ears. Adults should understand that today it is possible to enroll in one institution and then move to another, and there’s no point gritting his teeth to learn that you’re not interested. The main thing we can do for your child before exams, is to surround her with care, to drive to walk or put to sleep, when muscles are constrained from long sitting behind books. Or to find something on it online, drive by date.
“It’s not our tests. This is not our fight. It’s not our exam on “good education results”, even if we think so. We are the support group. We waiting in the wings with a Cup of broth back up power, with our smart friends that you could call at night to ask about the most difficult and obscure books and with the Internet, with hugs and kind words. We are responsible for the equilibrium point. Preparation for exams and their outcome the answer is not we.”
2. When the child has lost the motivation to learn
The book “How to study with interest” Yulia Gippenreiter she calls pocket. It contains recommendations and tips for parents from other books of the psychologist “to Communicate with the child. How?” and “we Continue to communicate with the child. So what?”. In the book she explains what study results really should pursue — and this is true for elementary, middle, high school and University studies.
Learning can be interesting, if you get pleasure from it. But today, for textbooks and programs meet officials, methodologists, scientists, publishers, sales, and censors. The child became the object rather than the subject of education, in such a situation, to love to learn is almost impossible. Besides, children have no choice when and what to teach. Simultaneously believes that success in education is possible when using three components. Observe, but don’t rush to help or learn for the child; create a learning environment at home with music, books and conversations; encourage by example.
“We have seen what a profound effect on mental and moral development of the child has had a presence near them passionate. In this case, communication with the Teacher’s personality, the perception of its values. Such communication is especially important because it does not have a direct educational purpose. Adult live “my life”, and the child now — attentive, and sometimes fascinated the observer. The enthusiasm of parents or teachers is contagious and inspiring.”
3. When your child has problems with peers
The book by Ludmila Petranovskoj “What if” contains simple instructions for kids on how to behave in difficult situations. Simultaneously, it helpful ideas for parents: listen to this book, you will know how to approach the child with the conversation. For example, unwillingness to learn and go to school may occur if a child is being bullied, name-calling or being bullied by classmates. Children often talk about this at home, because they fear the reaction or ridicule mom and dad. The first thing parents must do, is to teach the child to tell about their experiences to adults. The second is to learn to deal with them.
“Sometimes after a such cases, it so happens that it’s all over now, and long plagued by fear and resentment. It is very important to overcome them. Talk about your condition with someone you trust. Don’t blame yourself if you’re really scared, cried or behaved as we would like. Even adults and strong people often get lost when faced with violence, especially unexpectedly. Agree, blame the one who attacked, not the one who suffered. That even if he feels shame, if you can.”
4. When the child just all blaming and constantly angry
Psychologist and psychotherapist Virginie Dumont wrote a funny book “How to ruin the education of the child”, which talks about serious things. And if you follow all the advice of the author, then you’ll have to grow a deeply unhappy man. To do this, by all means teach your child to hate school, when choosing a place of study, guided by ratings, and the cult of success put first. As early as possible zadokite child’s failures and be sure to discuss with her teachers (especially if you know about them only from the words of the child). Repeat: this is bad advice. The author wants the parents did the opposite.
“Teachers are a bunch of losers, dropouts, sadists who know nothing about children and even less in parents who allow themselves to make an unfair and insulting judgments and put forward endless demands, while knowing nothing about real life. Why would they be limited to state employees, to know what was going on in the world if they most of the time sitting outside the school and almost six months of rest?”.
5. When you feel that the child is capable of more (and she doesn’t feel)
Christine gross-Lo collected in the book “Parents without borders” different habits, education of parents in different countries. In one Chapter she is trying to understand why the Asian school system able to educate winners of Olympiads and current standouts scary enough for a European methods. For example, in South Korea, children take years to learn seven days a week, and because of excessive loads in the country, a growing number of suicides of school students. This school system has become a big problem.
However, during my travels in Asia Christine gross-Lo noticed that the Asian education systems still have something to borrow. High expectations of parents and the desire to succeed, to meet these expectations, in fact, help the teenagers to grow up. It’s hard to believe, but kids really want to be proud of the parents, — says the author. It can help her become more successful in studies and Hobbies.
“The notion that Teens rebel against excessive parental expectations, finds real confirmation. On the contrary, studies show that good relationships with parents for many pupils become good enough reason to abandon the use of alcohol and drugs. It is the high expectations, not permissiveness or total control encourage children to move in the right direction. It’s the same with learning: instilling in Teens a sense of responsibility to family, we help them to achieve more.”
6. When you think that a child might make the wrong choice
American writer Richard Templar in his book “Rules for parents” gives 100 tips from moms and dads for all occasions. He explains how to be discipline when it is better to talk with teenagers about sex and what to do with the guilt (and your child). That’s the thesis of the book, which is particularly relevant to the exam and admission: the children will have to live with the consequences of their choices — and that’s fine.
Who will go to the physics Department just because the school had a good teacher on this subject. Someone will probably choose a very difficult specialty, so I have to change the University or to be retrained after. Parents only have to support every choice and to teach the child to make their own decisions. Even if the parents are with them do not agree.
“Ask yourself: well, what happens if the child will choose not what was supposed to choose from your point of view? And for whom, in your opinion, she must make a choice for you or for themselves? <…> But even if you think you want to force the child to do what is best for her (and he just still did not understand), you still are not right.
I do not tire of repeating what your parents ‘ role is much bigger than the role of the school. You teach children not just chemistry, music, or native language, you teach them life skills. Including and decision-making. If you do not allow them to do it, then you’re really not going to help them.”
Audio books are much more convenient than the paper version: you can listen in the car, while Jogging, or while cooking dinner. All the books mentioned by us (and many other), look for at the library of Storytel audiobooks.
