First trip to the children's camp
It took only a few days to stay in the camp,And the child sobs: "Mom, I want to go home!" Someone's parental heart probably will tremble and succumb to the tearful persuasion of a small sufferer. However, psychologists do not advise immediately to collect a suitcase. Most likely, such a reaction is a temporary phenomenon associated with adaptation. Soon you will calm down, get used to the new conditions and, it is not excluded, at the end of the shift will not want to leave home.
According to the rules.
To your child was not scary for the first timeBreak away from home, teach him how to fix the bed on your own, watch the cleanliness of clothes, clean up your clothes, observe the rules of hygiene. It is not out of place to learn in advance about the order and rules of life in the camp and tell the child about them in detail so that he can well imagine where he is going. You can honestly warn that in the early days it will not be easy for him and that the sooner he gets acquainted with his peers, the better. Convince the offspring that in any case he will not be abandoned, protection and support are the educators and counselors to whom he can apply for any questions.
Be sure to solve the issue of communication. If for some reason you are afraid to give your baby a cell phone, issue a phone card or money to buy it so that he can call home at any time. Ask him not to bother you for minor reasons. The child, who several times a day reports on what he did, with whom he played, when he ate, can be called "mama's son."
And yet there are situations when a small man is mercilessly rejected by a team. As a rule, this happens in the following cases:
■ The child does not understand the correlation of socialRoles in the team, does not see any reason to carry out the orders of the "leader", does not represent what he is facing. And when taunts or aggression come upon him, he does not catch the connection between his actions and the reaction of the children around him;
■ too shy and timid. If your child is difficult to join a new collective, send him to the camp together with a friend. This will accelerate the process of adaptation;
■ unpleasant outwardly: slovenly, poorly dressed, has congenital or acquired
Defects - large birthmarks, sores, strabismus, disfigured face or hands, lameness, etc.
I'm not scared!
Adaptation is a natural process for the firstTrips to the children's camp, but this does not mean that you should not pay attention to tearful requests to take home. Be sure to ask a child about what you do not like, suggest a solution to problems, advise you to consult a counselor. And also say that you also miss, but you believe that the young "holidaymaker" will quickly find friends. Do not promise to take your son or daughter from the camp if you are not ready to do so.
But if a child became a subject of ridicule andBeatings, it should be taken home - so that there is no inferiority complex and fear of the camp. If possible, consult a psychologist - he will help to find weaknesses in upbringing. Eliminate them - and then the next summer in the camp for both of you will be more pleasant.
Be calm if ...
• The son or daughter are sociable, quickly find a common language with peers, adapt to the company.
IMPORTANT! Warn the child: it is unlikely to get along with everyone. Enough couple of friends, and will not be alone;
• independent, able to quickly wash and dress, keep your things in order, clean the dishes.
IMPORTANT! Think together the children's wardrobe: things should not be too crumpled and dirty;
• Disciplined, able to follow a clear schedule, quickly perform the tasks assigned.
IMPORTANT! At home, getting used to the schedule, play "to the camp."
