As soon as the baby is no longer new to the world by lowering the hands of a mess, and for him it becomes a game or fun, you need to start with educational activities on the subject: how to behave at the table.
In two or three years, you pay attention to that before eating to wash your hands.At the table, explain to the child how to use a fork, a spoon, which hand to hold them.A little later - go directly to the theme of the culture of behavior.Make sure that the child does not crumble bread, I did not play with him, chewing with your mouth closed, not talking while eating with his mouth full.
It childhood we remember the saying: "When I eat, I am deaf and dumb."But eating does not have to turn the game in a silence: you can talk, but only in the intervals between the absorption of food.If the child does not listen to explain what a mouthful it will not listen.The topic of conversation should be given special attention.Do not talk like a child and the family together at the table of diseases, Curb sho
Often children act up at the table, pulled out.The fact is that they have low perseverance, they can not concentrate attention on one class not more than 15 minutes.Therefore, they can simply annoy the process, or the child may have to eat (because often the main meal before the parents give "bite" so the child can get hungry enough).
From the age of four in educational activities can come accustom to keep the right cutlery to take a little food at a time.Having learned to keep himself cutlery, you must move to self-feeding.After that, the parents do not go to the entreaties of "Feed me!"Because the child is an adult and can itself.Immediately necessary to show how to deal with cutlery: how to put a spoon into his mouth to take out (so the child does not Serban not slurp, do not knock the appliance on the teeth).At the same age can be shown, as it is with a knife and fork.At the same time think about safety.
When a child already goes to school, he should be calm, to be able to monitor the posture while eating, silently there, do not put your elbows on the table.The legs should not hang out under the table, to be crossed (it affects the posture).
Notes need to communicate, supporting living examples, images of fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Winnie the Pooh).Do not teach a child to blind faith in "how it should be," "so it is accepted" - this could ever play with you a malicious joke.Even if you broke a cry, calm down and explain the meaning of action.
educational activities on the subject of etiquette at the table are not limited to the culture of behavior during the meal.So that in the future no problems, attract the child to set the table, clean up after themselves after a meal.At first, they should at least denounce the plate to sink in five, six years old, you can instruct your child to wash the dishes.Let not immediately he will turn, will have to wash up after him, but always tactfully pointing out the flaws, so the next time he tried the best.
If he needed something to pass, do not let it drag on, and politely ask (using, of course, the "magic" word "please").At the table, you should not take away food from the neighboring plates, hurry grab the biggest piece.And when things do not work out, or blurted out (hiccup or burp), forced to apologize.After eating and teach the child to thank.
Parents also need to develop a child's aesthetic sense.Serve food nicely laid out, in general put a spoonful of food (not to climb into them every your device).Do not eat a pot or frying pan, standing, on the move.If you do not want your child to eat in the room, not lead by example and never feed him there.In no case can not eat with the TV on!At the table, the child's attention should be focused on food.If he is naughty, not hungry, do not scold him, but simply set aside a plate.You would think that he did not had enough - next meal start earlier.Do not go on an occasion when the child was a move to food.We need to eat all that is served, and cook separately for indulging the whims of no good will not.
Undoubtedly, all educational activities must be supported by their own example.Watch your manners of behavior, because boring stories nothing compared to the "picture", because children copy the behavior of parents to the smallest detail.Keep the table itself must be so, how would you like to see the child behaved and educational activities carried out gradually, with love and infinite patience.
