Child Care

Child Care and Discipline  Child-development

Development Stages of a Child  —  Medical Healthcare for Young Children

Child care can be a very controversial subject, even in a discussion between the two parents of a child.  Oftentimes, after marriage a couple finds that their child-rearing methods are different and this can be a very difficult road to negotiate in arriving at a shared method of children’s discipline.  Some of the topics a couple should discuss before marriage should include child care and discipline, even though it may seem too far in the future to think about.  There are several websites that can help with providing information on methods of childcare and other information such as child development stages, what to expect at certain ages and medical health care of young children.  I will be providing information such as this for a useful reference point for parents.

Chore Designation by Age

Chore Designation By Age for children is another topic for discussion for a couple considering having children.  Part of the values that you teach your children can be delivered in the manner in which you assign chores for your children as they are growing up.  This should start as early as possible so as to indicate to the child that responsibilities are a part of everyday life.

Assign Responsibilities and Building Confidence

If you will check out the “Chore Designations By Age” page on this website by clicking on the word CHORE, you can see how I grew up and what was expected of me when I was young.  This teaching principle is no longer a strong factor in most American families.  Children need to understand that responsibility of their use of materials and consequences of their actions are something they should own.  Most people do not have a caregiver who can follow the child around and pick up after them constantly.  If our children learn at an early age, how to care for themselves, they can be more independent and proud of their actions and footprint on our world.  This also gives them added confidence.  SE2

    Read the chore ages article. It is very much like what we had (minus farm chores as my father was a mining engineer and we lived in mining camps). Lots of these chores we managed to make a game of so they tended to be fun. For these chores we got our ‘pocket money’. If someone (my brother to be specific) didn’t do his chores the rest of us got a bit extra to do them. He would often try to do our chores and get paid but dad stonewalled him on this venture. No scheduled chores – no chance at extras!

      Helen,
      Oh I love that! What a clever little guy he was but not more clever than the father who sees through his game! Honest work does have it’s own rewards. Thank you for the compliment on my page. Please continue reading and I hope you will enjoy all my stories!

    Hi Paula
    I really enjoyed this article, and I agree with everything you said. Children of today don’t seem to have a strong sense of responsibility anymore, and most of the blame is on the parents who don’t enforce that principles on them anymore.

    The internet and technology has gradually taken the place of family time, and chores is the last thing on their minds.

    Regards

      Nick,

      Thank you for your comments. I appreciate your observations and agree with you that technology presents it’s “cons” in distracting our youth from some of their responsibilities. We probably need to design an app that can remind them of their chores before they can access their games and social interactions.
