Children in first and second grade experience incredible life transitions. During this time, many children start to have a more evident sense of self and begin to pay closer attention to where they fit into the framework of their lives. Being accepted by friends becomes more important as the need for independence grows. Children at this age seek autonomy and have some concept of the future, which now already governs some of their decision making.
No matter what your child's developmental status, by offering up play time, active participation and patience as a regular part of your routine, you'll be able to give your child the biggest advantage he could ask for.
We offer a range of fun and educational learning toys, games and fidgets. We specialize in fun and functional sensory gifts for autistic boys and girls, and offer products for all age groups and skill levels. Our learning toys for KG include imaginative play games, stacking and matching games, toys to improve dexterity and so much more.
No matter the milestone, recognizing your child's accomplishments will help to build her confidence and trust in the world around her. These are both vital cornerstones of a successful transition toward independence; by providing a safe, risk free environment for her to fail in, she'll be able to feel encouraged even if things don't go according to plan.
Giving your child additional responsibilities at home such as setting the table or putting away laundry provides a sense of accomplishment and pride. Chores at home also create a sense of belonging and will allow you to connect with one another over conversation. Talk with your child about school, friends and any problems she feels like she's facing. Validating her fears and offering achievable solutions will create a sense of pride that grows over time to become an invaluable foundation for the life ahead of her.
