Create stories and narrations for father-child communication
We have to facilitate our child to narrate to speak
If we want to have the opportunity not only
- to understand in depth how our child is positioning its self in the environment but
- also to facilitate him/her to narrate, to speak to create their own perspective of the space and time of the reality.
It is really important to create these moments of narrative communications
Moreover, father-child communication is important for the development of the critical father-child bond. This is something that a father till now was not a common sense in our society.
Most fathers like boys used to play more active activities they do not know how to narrate. They leave this narrating issue to mothers.
But children who narrate with their mothers have better academic performance.
When do you find these opportunities to narrate?
Narrate your experiences
- When you go to a museum
- or an outdoor activity
How do you enhance this ability?
- speak to your child with emotions, how you feel about what you see and experience and not only what you see
- ask from your child to do the same.
The same is with all type of narrations. But how do you organize stories or fairy tales?
Here are the basic steps with which you can organize the chaos of a story into an organized space and time activity.
