Being parents is the most beautiful experience that a person can live; however, it is not easy. New challenges are presented with children every day. Sometimes, educating with love, limits, and respect seems an almost impossible task to do.
Many parents tend to repeat the parenting patterns of the people who raise them, where the adult, because he was an adult, always had the right and last word. Adults did not give the correction through dialogue and did not see the possibility of reaching agreements.
Today, children respond better to loving and respectful stimuli when correcting them. This also implies learning for the adult, who must consider that it is he/she who guides the children and must not lose control in these situations.
While it is true that each child is in a world with different tastes, needs, and personalities, everyone responds better when feeling respected, understood, supported, and loved. Today there is a technique applied to correct behaviors, not only in children but also in adults. It is “The Sandwich Technique.” This technique is based on assertive communication.
There are two ways to change children’s behavior, criticism or praise. With the sandwich technique, the child’s behavior is adjusted with a positive stimulus. The idea is to capture children’s attention through a loving phrase and not a scream when it is observed that they are doing something that must change.
After having all their attention, positively speaking to them and letting them know that they could improve. Finally, positive reinforcement is given. That means that the action you want to change in your child will be in the middle of two praises, which is why it is known as the sandwich technique.
For this technique to work, you must consider the following: the message must reach the children clearly. Make sure children understand the request that is being made and do not threaten or criticize them.
Getting criticized can be quite annoying; However, this constructive criticism can become the perfect opportunity to modify that behavior using the correct words and form. It is essential to bear in mind that if you want children to be respectful and have good conduct, you must offer precisely the same to them.
The following Easter arts and crafts activity is based on the Montessori learning method, which seeks to develop practical skills for children’s lives through a loving and respectful education. The child has all the capacities to develop their learning autonomously, and the adult puts all their trust in it.
