Hello, De-Bill, you wrote: M>> And if it is at some instant interesting to the child to do and to study in nothing? DB> an avitaminosis, excessive loading, emotional burning-off, settling teachers, the crappy school, irritating schoolmates, near parents. A heap of the reasons why can seem that is interesting nothing to the child. Actually, it extremely rarely happens, that generally it was interesting nothing to the child. You name the reasons which can take place, but not as the main things. Well also prompt, how to near parents, with crappy school and settling teachers all the same to grow up normal children? One recipe is: to force children to study. Your recipe for near parents? M>> earlier parents could force, including rather rigid methods, DB> to Force to think, remember, understand rigid methods it is impossible. The such works only with stupid monotonous activity, and that, during the certain moments and in certain limits. As a maximum, it is possible to force to sit stupidly at desktop and to look in the book with problems. To force to understand and solve the task it is impossible. I will agree that for achievement of the present heights there should be all the same an interest. But also force parents too can, for example, correctly organizing a daily routine at children and achieved its performance. At least banal "yet you will not learn lessons you will go for a walk" (you will not play, you will not look at animated cartoons etc.) M>> and now divorced , fighters for the right of children to grow degenerates. DB> you personally with what raise the children? Whether strongly you hindered by justice in it? My sister raises a two. And yes hinders, at least with that creates fear and encourages children to knock on parents about violation of "the rights". But here against them that being at war with parents helps, do not stammer at "the rights of children" in children's homes: it is very useful to tell for preventive maintenance that there happens to children.
