So, the long-awaited summer has come. The last bell rang, and the offspring prepared to enjoy complete freedom. A kind grandmother is waiting for her grandson for all the holidays, having prepared a decent supply of sweets and pies. But the neighbors enrolled their child in a summer day camp and at each meeting they enthusiastically talk about the interesting leisure of their child. Parents are confused: what to do? To please the grandmother and give the child a breath of fresh air, or give preference to rest in the circle of peers?
The constant communication of the child with relatives of different generations is of great benefit for the development and formation of personality. The love and care of the grandmother is necessary for the baby no less than the parents.
You can be sure that the granddaughter will be treated kindly, fed, dressed and shod. If a child often spends time with his grandmother, then there is also a group of friends from among the neighboring children. Therefore, he will not be deprived of communication with peers..
The only moment that often does not suit parents is the spoiled nature of the returned child. Overprotection, which is abused by loving grandparents, suppresses the desire for independence in the younger generation. In a few months, a child gets used to constant care and impunity, which negatively affects the character.
Summer camp pedagogy
By choosing a day camp as a place for summer vacation, parents are counting on an educational and educational effect. This is what most institutions aim at. Organized leisure, combining game and learning elements, has a positive effect on the formation of a growing personality. Being in a team improves social skills. A strict daily routine teaches order and self-organization.
Usually the baby is not able to immediately accept a new way of life, the process of adaptation to changing conditions is inevitable. Kind and attentive teachers provide interesting and useful entertainment, but they cannot devote all attention to one child. In addition, on your legal holidays, you really want to indulge and be naughty, but the regime does not allow this..
What to choose?
Of course, the final decision must be made based on the individual characteristics of the child. While some really enjoy spending time away from relatives, others feel uncomfortable in unfamiliar surroundings. Optimal for most children will be the division of summer holidays into two parts. They spend one period in an atmosphere of grandmother’s love and for the benefit of the soul, and the second – in a summer camp, learning and showing independence.
