When one speaks of “intelligence”, it’s easy to focus on a narrow fragment that counts for cognitive learning. To many people, excellence in math, science, and reading is an evident indication of a child’s abilities.
But while those areas of discipline are essential, well-rounded learning makes room for more than just static knowledge in words and numbers. The complexities of a child’s development also cater to their need to grow on their own, blossom in their relationships, and enrich their overall well-being.
As a parents’ partner in raising a generation of healthy, smart kids with a heart, Enfagrow A+ Four provides initiatives that help support the stimulation of young minds and bodies. By sharing a few tips, the brand is one with parents in fulfilling the Missing Half — to help give kids both the emotional and cognitive intelligence they need to excel and shape a better world.
Validate your child’s feelings
It’s easy to brush off a child’s sentiments especially when they seem menial. But a small thing to an adult can be a big thing to a child — and it is through slight moments like this that children develop a deep sense of trust with their parents. When parents establish a home that makes children feel heard, they set the groundwork for kids to grow with confidence in their adolescent years and beyond.
Be the one who listens
Studies say that physical aggression in children — which includes hitting, biting, and crying incessantly — is more dominant between the ages of two and five. This is because they don’t have the right amount of words to express how they feel properly.
For parents, no one jumps for joy when their kid is having a meltdown. But when the intensity of their emotions arises, it is an opportunity to connect with them and put things into perspective. Labeling feelings such as “happy”, “afraid”, or “sad”, or “calm”, is a good way to foster emotional literacy.
Beyond the school’s normal curriculum, kids can learn empathy through play, storytelling, and read-aloud sessions. Through images and sounds, they will be able to put into context the world around them based on their perception.
