During the National Day holiday, I happened to be on vacation, and I wanted to take my children out on a trip. But when I mentioned this to my mother-in-law, my mother-in-law disagreed, on the grounds that the child was too young to go out, and to travel was to go to other people's boring places to "waste money".
Of course, I do not agree with the mother-in-law's statement, I said that taking the child out of the house is a long insight, the child will go to primary school next year, let the child see some new things in the outside world, expand the child's knowledge. But even if I said this, my mother-in-law still did not agree, she felt that the child was so young, she did not know what to travel, and what could be gained.
Seeing that my mother-in-law is so insistent, I don't know what to do, I can't force my children to go, this will destroy the relationship between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.
In desperation, I told the child's father about this matter, and after the child's father heard it, he also felt that it was good to travel with the child, so he went to his own mother to consult.
Unexpectedly, after the child's father came back and said "our mother agreed", I was very curious, what method did the child's father use to persuade the old man? You know, after the old man generally decides something, it is not so easy to change. After the child's father told me that the benefits of his father's trip had been told to his mother, his mother agreed.
"But I also said ah, I said that travel can increase children's knowledge." 」 I wondered.
"Travel, not only for the sake of longevity, but also for other benefits." Bao Dad said mysteriously.
What are the benefits of traveling with children in addition to increasing knowledge?
- Improve your child's language skills and communication skills
Children's language ability is a very important ability, it is the basis for children to express their wishes and adapt to civilized society.
Communication skills are related to all aspects of children's civilized society, including children's studies, work, emotions and so on. Therefore, children's language ability and communication ability are very important abilities.
In the process of traveling with children, these two abilities of children can be greatly improved, this is because when children travel, they will get more opportunities to communicate with people, see and learn more ways of communication between strangers, so as to gradually enhance their language expression ability and the correct way to communicate with people, and even be able to learn some wrong communication warnings, so that their communication ability can be rapidly improved.
In fact, we can find from life that some children who like to travel are often more able to speak the Tao, and have higher enthusiasm, make friends more naturally and smoothly, and are not prone to stage fright when participating in some activities. This is actually the benefit of travel.
- Exercise your child's mental flexibility
The child's thinking itself is a state of "boundless and boundless", but this "chaotic" state is relatively lack of imagination, creativity, and lack of flexibility in thinking when it does not accept external intervention, that is, when there is no thinking guidance, but as the child comes into contact with more things, the child's thinking stimulation deepens, the child's thinking will become active, thereby enhancing the child's imagination and creativity, and at the same time will have a positive impact on the child's logical thinking, memory, etc. Make your child smarter and smarter.
For example, many children who like to travel do not seem to study hard, but their academic performance is good, because the child's brain is smart, and the comprehension ability, memory, planning ability, etc. are strong.
- Cultivate children's cognitive ability and improve children's knowledge reserves
Children's cognitive ability is an important factor for children to understand the world, and children's knowledge reserves will be the key factors for children to gain a foothold and develop in civilized society.
Travel can greatly improve children's cognitive ability and knowledge reserves. This is because in the process of traveling, children will be exposed to more information about the destination of the trip, learn a lot of knowledge that they have never dabbled in, understand a lot of truths that they can't understand at home, and so on.
Moreover, travel is also a kind of knowledge practice behavior, which can support the child's ideas and allow the child to have a more thorough and profound understanding of certain knowledge.
Children who like to travel often have a strong knowledge base, they seem to be knowledgeable, no matter who can talk to the sky, and this huge knowledge base will also greatly support children's learning and future professional learning, and will be of great help to children's future work, life and communication.
It is because the mother-in-law heard that travel has so many benefits, so she agreed to let the child travel, and even thought about whether she could let the child travel often.
Just kidding, who has so much time to travel with kids all the time? However, although it is usually not possible to travel with children, it can let children enjoy the joy of travel, and the mystery of all this is in "Playing Stickers in China".
Although "Playing Stickers in China" is a set of books, it is not a set of ordinary books, it is a set of "travel sticker books", which contains detailed information on 34 regions of the mainland, and the basic information, maps, culture, history, specialties, and landforms of these areas are explained in detail.
And each region is equipped with a special sticker theme, the theme will have some regional characteristics of the element there is a vacancy, and the child needs to find this vacancy in the sticker, hands-on pasted on the theme.
In this process, the child's hand-eye coordination, hands-on ability, thinking, concentration, etc., will get a greater exercise.
For example, when introducing Shandong Province, the book introduces Shandong's abbreviation Lu, Shandong's provincial capital Jinan, population, area, etc., and also introduces Shandong's specialties Yantai apples, East Ejiao, etc., as well as Shandong's famous attractions Taishan, Penglai Pavilion, Baotu Spring, etc. Children can easily learn these geographical knowledge while playing.
In addition to the inclusion of geographical knowledge, this set of books also connects some historical knowledge, such as the introduction of Shandong Province, but also introduced the famous poet Wang Wei's poem "September 9 Remembrance of Shandong Brothers", and also explained that this poem is Wang Wei's work when he was seventeen years old, etc., which can help children increase their historical knowledge.
This way of traveling allows children to reap the benefits of travel without leaving home. More importantly, parents only need to spend half an hour a day playing with their children, which can benefit their children a lot, why not?
The growth of children can not be delayed, between the age of 3 and 12 years old, we must pay attention to take the child to see more about the outside world.
If you don't have time, then don't forget to prepare a set of "Playing Stickers in China" for your child, although it cannot replace travel, it can maximize the joy of travel and the benefits of travel to children.
