Family coexistence is the greatest opportunity for the child to learn a formation based on moral principles and virtues.
When the family has good principles of education, using in their everyday educated ways of dealing with each other, speaking in a quiet and low tone of voice, using the words that translate education and delicacy, such as good morning and good night, Please ask, thank you with a thank you, asking for permission, among many others, the child absorbs these concepts and takes them for a lifetime.
However, what we see are families who are uneducated, thinking that boys can not learn good manners, as this will compromise their masculinity.
Who does not like a fine, well-mannered man who opens the door of the car to his girlfriend or wife, who has the delicacy of gifting him with roses, pull the chair for her to sit down? The famous gentleman, so rare nowadays, that in his masculinity manages to remain with concepts that do not compromise him in this sense, making him the most desired man. But for this to happen, it is necessary that the child has learned to coexist with these examples and concepts from very small.
In some families it is normal to use profanity as a way to treat, parents call children a donkey, pig, but it is good to remind them that pigs can only be pigs, that the son of a donkey is also stupid and that we are not animals To receive treatment as if we were grossly and pejoratively.
Another thing that seriously undermines the child’s education is when she does not receive adequate hygiene information, such as cleaning her nose in the bathroom, washing her nose and washing her hands with soap and water, and not taking secretions from every corner of the house or Even on the street, in front of other people.
It is also common to see the family laughing, having fun when the child is with flatus, releasing their gases anywhere, in front of anyone. It is clear that the very young child takes some time to manage them, but by the time he is two years old, when he can already control sphincters, this domain can be learned too if this is the example given by the family. In the case of belching, the baby should practice it, so as not to be in danger of choking on reflux, but gradually, as he grows older,
A young child can properly cut
As for food, children can absorb the concepts of good etiquette and, even within their limitations related to the development of motor coordination, are able to show some learning in this sense, such as holding the spoon and taking food alone to the mouth, They learn to cut food properly, and little by little, that is part of their routine, making it very easy.
It is good to remember that what you learn in childhood is lifelong and what you do not learn when you are little is much harder to learn later. A common mistake of parents is to allow children to do everything they want, and when they grow up, around seven or eight years old, they start a sudden charge, even hitting their children to correct them. If they had taught good manners from a very early age it would not happen, they would not have to go to such lengths.
So, educate your children by teaching them the basic rules of education, good manners and good living together, because life requires these concepts and those who do not have them find greater difficulties in the social environment.
