At the age of three, kids are begin a completely different stage of their lives. Natural curiosity is leading them to discover and explore the world around them. It is also a time when you can start to observe developments of personality traits of your child. They start to know who they are and what they want and it is very important to build up clear borders and rules that will add to child stabilization and security.
It is very important to build up relationships based on trust. There are few things we can do stimulate personal growth of three year old’s.
- Create routines for your child. A good schedule will let you fulfill your own plans and will give to your child a stronger sense of security. It is less likely that a child will cry because of a bath or the time when they have to go to sleep as they naturally adopt the routine as habit. When they grow up it will also make their lives easier when it comes to keeping structure.
- Read to a child. It will not only develop your relationship with your child but it will also develop a child’s imagination and vocabulary. Every day reading is always a good idea as it tends to expands a child’s knowledge about the world. You can pick thematic books that will describe every day life, use of different items or even a stroll about in the local nature park.
- Try to create a colourful room for your child. Pick calming colours and toys that are interesting while supporting intellectual development. You do not have to sell gold to do so. Sometimes your own imagination is the most important in creating colourful and children friendly environment. Three years old can be fascinated by the simplest things. Let them to be involved in changes they will be more than happy to help.
- Introduce them to new experiences and languages. I was testing a Polish proxy on my laptop and noticed how my little one was fascinated watching cartoons in Polish.
