How to get your child to help around the home

Being clean does not come naturally to children. Helping to clean up around the home, being part of the family team, is a behaviour that can be taught. Make a game of cleaning up. Write jobs on pieces of paper and put into a hat....

Why is my child perfectly behaved for everyone else but me

Many of us have learned social manners – to say “Please”, “Thank you”, “Sorry”. This is learned behaviour which we teach our children. As parents we role-model many behaviours, which our children learn within the home environment. The home is a place where children feel...

Building relationships with grandparents

Grandparents are cherished members of the family; their life experience and wisdom is invaluable. Many grandparents will say the love given and received from their grandchildren is a rewarding experience. They see their legacy continue through their beloved grandchildren. It can take time for some to...

Belonging and feeling accepted

There is a strong yearning within each of us to belong and be accepted, whether it be part of a family or a social group. Sadly, some people are not accepted in a group because of a disability, their sexuality or culture, social awkwardness, or...

소속감과 받아들여진다는 느낌 (Belonging and being accepted)

우리 모두에게는 가족의 일원이든 혹은 사회집단의 일부이든, 소속되고 싶고 구성원으로 받아들여지고 싶은 강한 열망이 있습니다. 안타깝게도 그중 일부는 그들의 장애, 성적 취향, 문화 및 사회적 거북함, 또는 갖가지 구실로 집단의 구성원으로 받아들여지지 못하기도 합니다. 소외된다는 것은 고통스러운 일입니다. 남들과 다르다는 것은 학교에서 더욱 두드러지며 이러한 것들이...

归属感和被接受的感觉 (Belonging and feeling accepted)

不管是作为家庭或者社会群体的一部分,我们每个人都强烈地希望能属于其中并被接受。可悲的是,有些人因为残疾、性取向、文化、不善社交或者其他理由而不为一个群体所接受。被冷落是很痛苦的。 学校里的区别尤为明显。在学校里,孩子们可能会骚扰或者欺负校内的其他人。有时这种行为还会蔓延到网络世界。孩子在家里会受到来自网络世界的网络骚扰,而家本应该是一个安全的地方。在一个群体中,通常是一个人煽动欺凌,然后其他人加入其中。 成年人会用意良好,告诉孩子不要理会骚扰然后离开。但这并不总能让孩子不再有被排斥的感觉,也不能教会其他孩子尊重和包容。父母是老师、也是榜样,我们在与他人交往时要尊重他人,这一点非常重要。孩子们听到我们对他人的评价,他们会观察我们如何与他人交往。孩子们的大脑就像海绵,会吸收我们的看法和成见。作为父母,我们的工作就是教育和“培养”孩子,让他们成为有礼貌的、快乐的成年人。 告诉你的孩子他们是特别的、独特的、可爱的,那她也会欣赏别人的独特和美好。告诉你的孩子,学校里的“酷小孩”并不总是理想的玩伴。在这一群体中通常存在着严格的等级,其中会有一个或者两个孩子“做主”。以实例来体现尊重、善良和同情心的价值所在。传授你的孩子这些价值观,他们长大后也会尊重你。 最重要的是,你的孩子需要知道你是站在他们这一边的,需要知道你会倾听他们,需要知道无论他们是谁或者将成为谁,你都会接受他们。   如果您想了解更多理解孩子与帮助孩子成长的相关内容,请拨打电话 9334 0111或发邮件至connect@thenortherncentre.org.au与我们联系,预约与我们的资深家庭工作者交谈,谈话内容将完全保密。...

Social Media Impact on Parenting

When our adorable bundle is born, we are not given an instruction manual on how to raise our delightful progeny.  We guide our offspring through the many milestones of life and on this journey, we take photos and record events in the lives of our...

소셜 미디어가 육아에 미치는 영향 (Social media impact on parents)

사랑스러운 자녀가 태어났을 때, 우리는 아이들을 잘 키우는 비법이 담긴 설명서를 따로 가지고 있지는 않습니다. 우리는 자녀들이 커가면서 겪는 중요한 순간들을 함께 하고, 그런 소중한 순간들을 사진으로 남기고 녹화를 하기도 합니다. 30년전이었다면, 이런 사진을 앨범에 담아 할머니 할아버지와 일가친척들이 모두 모였을 때 함께 꺼내 보곤 했을...

社交媒体对育儿的影响 (Social media impact on parents)

当我们可爱的宝宝出生时,我们没有得到一本指导手册告诉我们如何抚养他们长大。  我们指导子女走过人生许多重要的阶段,并且在这旅途中, 我们拍照来记录孩子与家庭日常生活中的点点滴滴。 30多年前,这些活动照片会放入相册,并在家中举行聚会时与祖父母和其他人分享。如今,我们大部分人在网上分享大量的家庭快照、自己的装饰图片选集以及参与小组讨论意见,并且与业务领域里的其他人建立关系网。社交媒体让我们更加紧密地联系在一起,与远方的亲戚保持联系并创建在线友谊社区。 现在有太多的信息共享,而它的缺点就是我们可能过度分享,这不利于个人隐私和安全。发布自己和孩子的帖子以及图片时要格外小心。它是正面反映了你和你的家人呢还是可能会导致误解呢?在社交媒体上,很容易出现因误解帖子或推文而指责他人的现象。我们可能因我们孩子的成就感到非常兴奋激动,比如在操场上赛跑或爬绳。我们拍下幸福的快照而没有祝贺我们的孩子或鼓励他们参加体育活动 。这些快照被上传到社交媒体之后,我们等待赞同反馈和评论而不是分享父母与孩子间的特别时刻。在社交媒体上分享的另一个缺点是有些父母就他们自己与其他父母间作比较。这些父母表边上看起来拥有一切——好的房子、爱慕的伴侣以及聪明且听话的孩子。然而,我们在表面上看到的往往并不是完整的故事。 制定一个用餐时禁止使用电子设备的规矩。确保在你们交流时,一天里至少有一个小时不使用电子设备; 或者玩棋盘游戏或拼图、一起做饭、出去散步。 研究表明人与人之间的紧密交流有助于孩子身体茁壮成长并且让他们在学术更有优势。 社交媒体是一个很好的工具和平台。 我们能够快速地获取信息和新闻。 住在远方的家人能够和大家庭保持联系。 群组是一个很好的资源让人们相互分享信息并提供支持。 我们必须在使用媒体方面在我们的家庭里做出榜样。如果我们现在忽略自己的孩子,那么在未来短短几年内,我们的孩子将忽视我们。   如果您想了解更多理解孩子与帮助孩子成长的相关内容,请拨打电话 9334 0111或发邮件至connect@thenortherncentre.org.au与我们联系,预约与我们的资深家庭工作者交谈,谈话内容将完全保密。...

Importance of Dad time

Until around the 1970s, there were mostly clear and defined roles for Mums and Dads. The Mother would stay at home or be the main caretaker and emotional support for the children whilst Dad was the bread winner. However these days there are no longer...
