How to Choose Toys for Your Children

As everyone knows, the work that children have is to play, and the tools they use to play are the toys. The question that arises is what kind of toys do they have?

Which are the most and least appropriate? For whom should we decide every day children are "bombarded" in television ads for the most varied, and if they are available in great cartoon on top, most of the time are perfect copies of dolls which can wear , going to parties, characters are fantastic, each marry and have children, others are galactic invaders, etc.. There is therefore a huge competition in terms of entertainment and games.
Ideally, the toys they should buy are those that are appropriate to their ages. For example, although a microscope can be very stimulating and useful for a child of 11 years, it is very likely to remain on a shelf, untouched, if offered to a child of preschool age. Already on the other hand, if you buy a doll for his daughter, who has come up with a dress, for example, medieval and some historical significance, it is very likely that your imagination fly quickly over time. Today, many companies have already indicated in the boxes of toys ages themselves, which helps a lot in both the choice and the effect it will raise, putting aside the feelings of frustration and failure which could inflict.
When choosing toys for your child, be sure also to take into account the different areas of expertise that help to develop some toys.
For example, develop the fine motor skills is essential in a child who is learning to write his name. Toys that enhance and develop this competence are the best toy cars, building materials, yo-yos, magnets, video games, the handling of computer mice or write with computer keyboards.
Already with regard to coordinating and developing the capacity to develop muscle strength of a child is given a jump rope, roller skating, playing with rackets and began to walk on roller skates, or even begin cycling. The toys can help develop children's imagination. Children in their early school years, they love to play make-believe. For example love to play pretend that you are the post office, or pretend to be teachers and who are teaching their students the ABC.
Try giving a medical kit to your child and you will see that soon begins to simulate operations in their favorite dolls. Children of primary love playing with dolls and animals.
Therefore, at this age, do not deprive a boy playing with dolls, not discourage the girls playing with cars or toys that are traditionally for boys. If you prefer, in addition to dolls or stuffed animals, puppets are a good alternative, because they are great to give life and recreate voices and stories through the imagination. Do not forget that a child's imagination, the box that comes with the refrigerator or the microwave there new home can be quickly transformed into a space station or a puppet theater. The children basically love is to do things and play. Encourage your kids to work on creativity, always ensuring that they have on hand paper, pencils, markers, pens, paints, brushes, pencil-of-wax, etc..
Toys docking, the Lego, the etc.., Are great for architectural projects. The kits, jewelry, musical instruments, etc.. are great for developing their creativity. Another type of toys that help children develop their thinking capacity are precisely those board games. In the case of younger children is the best simple games, but in the older puzzles, books, science kits and are most suitable. Besides the children, virtually every board game has a very positive because they can always be made with the family.

The stutter in childhood

The stuttering, or stammering, is known technically as it is a language disorder that affects about 1 percent of the children.

It is characterized by a change in pace of speech, repetitions or blockages arising. This discontinuity causes a disruption in terms of rhythm and melody of speech. Although we do not know very well the motives, the fact is that boys are more affected than girls, and the ratio is 3 to 1.

Types of stuttering

- The clonic stuttering; is characterized by the repetition of a syllable in the sentence or while uttering it. There is a compulsive repetition of syllables that are stuck (for example, Por-Por-P0r-Portugal).

- A Focus stuttering is accompanied by a stop in speech; preventing the articulation of the word. It seems that it stumbles on the words. Suddenly, the missing word explodes and the phrase is completed - for example: you want to eat, eat, eating an ice cream? The stuttering may be accompanied by motor movements like eye blinking, tics and tremors.

- A lisp; is also disorders that fall into stuttering. The babbling has a thought, so to speak, takes place faster than you can verbalize what causes a clash of words. In Lisp, phrases are imperfect, inconsistent in how we build, but not in its articulation.

When does it starts?

The stuttering tends to occur between 3 and 6 years, but is more frequent at age 5. These ages are in themselves, two critical stages of child development, since it is around 3 years the child begins to use language as a privileged instrument of communication.

The formal thought is consolidated and the need to put into practice. The child tries to communicate verbally, but he makes a mistake with words. These difficulties cause anxiety, which increases when she realizes that her mother is also concerned for that reason.

Sometimes, in the stages of language evolution, there may be some episodes of stuttering, but are transient. This should not be a cause for concern for parents. The situation usually resolves itself and insistence on correcting it is likely to cause a fixation.

Some children even reach to express great fear to speak. Children also tend to repeat whole sentences, which should not be confused with stuttering.

At 6 years, it is time for entering elementary school and there are children who suffer terribly at this time, since they are flooded with feelings of abandonment. Although most families choose to place their children in kindergarten, it is certain that this moment could be a traumatic situation for children who were always with her mother and who suddenly find themselves deprived of it.

The fear of abandonment, the fantasy of having done something wrong and are being punished for it, increase their anxiety to the point that symptoms may arise from stuttering.

Solutions for stammering

There are several ways to approach this problem:

- Speech Therapy - for the language to become fluent.

- Relaxation- so that the subject learns to relax when faced with situations of great anxiety.

- Psychotherapy- alone or in addition to other intervention, psychotherapy appears to be effective. In adolescents, psychotherapy focused on problems specific to the crisis of adolescence can have a very happy this disorder. In children, psychotherapy is also an option to consider in order to free it of its anxieties and conflicts.
