媽媽到底有多重要?

不知大家是否留意到很多名人傳記中是怎樣描寫媽媽這個角色呢:溫柔、賢淑、堅強、善解人意、善良、有主見 ……

我們知道孩子在幼年時對媽媽有著本能的依賴,所以,媽媽的性格、語言和行為均會影響其孩子的一生。那麼我們如何才能使孩子的性格習慣,不往媽媽性格的反方向發展並承襲媽媽的優點呢?

最好的辦法就是媽媽在孩子面前必須收斂起自己的鋒芒。媽媽在孩子面前,不是在談判桌前,不需要用批評、挑剔和要求完美的眼光去看待孩子,媽媽咄咄逼人的態度、尖酸刻薄的語言、駕馭一切的行為和自以為是的判斷,對孩子的自尊、自信的傷害遠大於我們能想。

而對於孩子來說,從他出生那一刻起,孩子對母親這個角色的要求,幾乎是永恆不變的。

做個合格的好媽媽

1     返到屋企前,忘記自己的不愉快

媽媽在進家門之前,務必提醒自己:忘掉所有工作上或其他不愉快的事情,現在開始承擔的是媽媽的角色了。孩子需要媽媽很快樂,千萬不要把與孩子無關的壞情緒轉到孩子身上,因為孩子是無辜的。

 

2     稱讚孩子十分重要

當孩子很興奮地給媽媽看他今天在學校或家中完成的工作時,千萬不要表現出厭煩或者不屑一顧,一定要表現得和孩子一樣高興。應說能不能讓媽媽看看,要和他一起分享這個快樂,因為這個對孩子來講是非常重要的。

3   和孩子一起探索

當孩子進入十萬個為什麼的時期時,會不停的問各式各樣的問題,這個時侯媽媽最好不要馬上就回答他,最差的回答是「你怎麼連這個都不懂」,或是把問題推給別人「明天上課時你問問老師吧」。

媽媽最好說,「哎呀,我也不知道呢,不如我們一起找答案,好嗎?」幾次之後媽媽就教會了孩子怎樣找圖書,同時,孩子找到答案後會很有成就感,多次之後就能養成查閱資料不依賴媽媽的習慣了。

4     冷靜

當孩子告訴媽媽今天考試沒考好時,媽媽一定要控制自己的情緒,絕對不能發火或臉色陰沈,孩子這時正緊張地觀察著媽媽的臉色呢。所以,媽媽最好表現得沒什麼情緒變化,讓孩子把試卷拿出來,和孩子一起分析試題不懂的地方。

如果孩子已經知道錯在哪兒了,媽媽也不必再說什麼。只要鼓勵他就好。媽媽要是感到自己無法控制情緒,就去洗手間洗洗臉,做幾個深呼吸。

5   幫孩子舒緩緊張情緒

當孩子在考試前或做什麼比較重要的事情之前表現出緊張膽怯時,媽媽千萬不要斥責他膽小或表現得比孩子還緊張,這樣只會加重孩子的心理壓力,導致孩子無法正常的發揮。

媽媽最好表演得很輕鬆地對孩子說,不管你做得怎樣,爸爸媽媽在你這麼大的時候還不如你呢,不要擔心。這時,孩子心裡會很有比較得到舒緩和自信,會發揮得比平時更好。

6    面對失敗,要再堅強一點

當孩子遭受失敗或挫折時,媽媽要表現出堅強和絕不放棄的態度,冷靜地告訴孩子失敗只是一時,不代表永遠失敗。

不要在孩子還沒認為要放棄時,媽媽就先表現得沒有什麼希望。最差的做法就是用刻薄的語言挖苦他,把孩子數落得一無是處,甚至新帳舊賬一起算。這樣的媽媽教育出來的孩子會極度自卑,甚至錯失自己本應美好的前途。

7     請改變命令的口吻

媽媽絕不要在孩子還沒把想說的話表達清楚時,就自以為是地搶先表達自己的觀點,不管孩子是否願意,就以「你必須……」、「你應該……」的語氣命令孩子,以自己的觀點來代表孩子的觀點,而且要求孩子去執行。

媽媽千萬不能成為「專制」的代名詞。在這種情況下長大的孩子缺乏主見,缺乏是非判斷能力。媽媽和孩子之間應建立平等的關係,要記著平等並不等於無原則, 要懂得互相尊重對方。

8    '簡短和沈默

媽媽在孩子面前要控制語言的數量。千萬不要嘮叨,事實上,最讓孩子害怕的是媽媽的沈默,所以,與其嘮嘮叨叨地對孩子說個沒完,不如用簡短的語言告訴他犯的錯誤所在或應注意些什麼。接下來,媽媽用沈默肯定比繼續說話更有用。

所以,母親的性格、語言和行為是真的會影響孩子一生。 

而一個賢良的媽媽背後,往往站著一個深愛她的丈夫。丈夫愛得越堅定,妻子內心越安定,性格也就越溫和。

 



 
  I joined the home schooling package 2 months ago. I want to thank the teachers and education consultants for offering me professional advices and helping me to set up the Montessori corner at home. My girl loves it!

"Tomas has become so much more independent and always comes home with a smile. Thank you DMS for being so caring and supportive towards my child".
Carol Zheng




"Thank you DMS! My duaghter is finally enjoying mathematics. I can't believe she is now completing additon and subtraction problems... she is only 3 years old!"

Rebecca Craig




"Simply put Discovery Montessori School is a lovely school. Our daughter loves the school and her teachers. We have been touched by the amount of passion the teachers have for teaching. More importantly, the teachers at Discovery Montessori truly care about the well being of each and every child."

Graham and Cindy Wallace




'Absolutely the best school around!! The children leave the school with a love of learning. Very highly recommended!!!'
Parents of Eric P.




"Discovery Montessori School is only new to Discovery Bay, yet it has exceeded all my expectations. I am just sad that my children can't stay there forever."

Winnie Chan-Fields




"My son is now in Primary 1 after completing a year at Discovery Montessori School in DB. He is reading at a 2nd grade level where other children are still practicing their ABCs. We just couldn't be happier with our decision to send Matthias to Discovery Montessori."

James Prenzler




"My sons' concentration power has improved a lot since going to DMS. They used to wander around the house picking up and putting down toys but now they've learnt to work at toys one by one and most thankfully, put them back before moving on. They've also learnt discipline and manners in a fun and light hearted way. They have learnt to say please, put their hands on their laps as well as taking turns.
My sons have also learnt other useful skills (useful for kindie interviews!) like answering to their names, sorting, passing things etc.. The teachers seem to really understand the kids' stage of development, their abilities and limitations and have tailored things accordingly. My sons now sit right through circle time and seem to really enjoy it.
I personally enjoy the art projects most. While simple enough for the kids to do for themselves, they always incorporate different materials and textures for the kids to experience and explore.
A big thank you to the staff at DMS for making our classes so enjoyable!"

Kelvin Lai & family.




The passion and care of DMS staff and teachers has made Andre's transition from the Discovery Bay campus seamless and very successful. We are extremely glad to see Andre enjoying and looking forward to school every day. It is impressive to see how structured and organized DMS Central is and keeping parents well informed of the progress. We are very pleased to see the great progress that Andre has been making: being more independent, able to express himself better and able to better interact with others.


Overall, we are very happy with DMS Central and highly recommend to other parents. Last but not least, special thanks to you Katie, Ms. Asha, Ms. Hannah, and Ms. Catherine for all your help and care for Andre.

A couple years ago I was asked from one of my favourite mentor – where is the best place for a child to learn most of their life time knowledge? The right answer is “HOME”. It’s a place where your child learns the most from, a place where they spend most of their life time in. Hence, the ones who spend time at home are the teacher of this child. Your child is born to be like you, they absorb all good and bad that is from you. We as a parent has brought them into the world and all parents would like their child to be independent and most importantly to be independent as soon as they can be.
The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.’ – Maria Montessori
We were approached by one of the consultant from DMS when our daughter was 6 months old. From then, our home has only Montessori materials and books from library. The parental classes provided are very helpful and have helped us to direct our child to use. For our daughter, the materials are her “toys” and there are different ways to stimulate her interest in learning. For us, it is a medium to bond with our daughter. We are very pleased about how our child mastered her fine motor skill so easily and she can write on paper when she was 18 months. She loves to entertain herself with the materials and we love to direct her into new ways in the materials.

I bought your product from UNY department in Hong Kong and am very impressed about the quality of your product and teaching aid provided in the package. Thank you.

from Amanda




I bought a few of your Mathematics products from SOGO last week. I’m so impressed that my daughter understands the addition and subtraction concept very easily through manipulating the tools.

Mrs Choi




'We were both educated in a Montessori school in the US and were both so happy to have a brand new Montessori school open so close to our chome in Central. Our children get such a thrill from going to school at the same time daddy goes to work.'
Mr and Mrs Dawson




DMS can pride itself in having cherry picked their teachers to fulfil these tall requirements. A tailor made teaching approach to each kindergarten child seems formidable, but happens in their classes. In his two years in DMS our son has grown by leaps and bounds. We have seen him swell in confidence, acquire excellent social skills, experience the joy of learning and further develop his inquisitive mind. His excellent preschool experience has laid a strong foundation for his future and opened his mind to the limitless possibilities this world has to offer.
Thank you DMS for moulding our little boy beautifully. We will miss you!

from Radha




I really want to thank you for recommending the Montessori tools to me in baby expo. My son really loves your products. He could concentrate for a long time when playing them and I’ve never seen him sit still for such a long time!

Victor's family




'Our daughter has been at Discovery Montessori since she was 1year and 5 months, (she is now nearly 3).

She has learned a lot at school through playing... from practical skills,
like pouring water into a cup and pushing the chair in when she stands up,
to learning another language (Mandarin).

I am delighted by the progress she has made, of course, but most of all, I am happy to see how much she loves going to school every day. After school she is so excited and proud to tell me what she did in class and she sings songs she has she learnt.'

Yuko




'Thanks for a great day at the Botanical gardens. I rarely have time to get out and do things with my child and going on the field trip together was such a fun experience - Takumi still asks everyday if we will go together to see the Gibbons!'
