Does your baby still not dare to go to school alone?
Are you still asking to go anywhere, even though you have reached the age of 8-9 years?
The above facts are the effects of:
This may be because the child has experienced something that made him afraid, treated harshly by people, followed by unknown people, met frightening animals, etc.
Parents often scare children not to do things that parents think harm their children. Though actually this method is not recommended, because accidentally parents teach children to be afraid of something. For example, the child will go to play, because at that time the child should take a nap, then the mother scares like this: “Watch, you will be bitten by a cat or dog later.” Now that way actually only makes children afraid of cats and dogs.
The solution to the problem so that children do not become fearful anymore is by practicing child courage, the way is to tell that the outside world is not scary, even fun. Then take the kids for a walk around the housing and teach them how to socialize with the people around them. But for children who have experienced severe trauma, they should use the services of an expert person.
Besides that, parents also have to instill the methods below:
Perform Observation or Survey First
Make sure the environment that the child is going through is a safe environment. The distance is not too far away, a maximum of 2 km. Also note whether the road is crowded with vehicles or not, whether the road is polluted or not, around the river which is dangerous or not.
Equip Children with Regulations and Prohibitions
More precisely to the rules of general signs, such as teaching children to walk through the left lane, see right and left before crossing. Teach also to refuse when invited by unknown people. Immediately ask for help by shouting when someone is unknown and wants to invite by force.
Already Know Yourself Teak
Parents should release the child after the child knows his identity, who he is, who his parents are, knows the address of his home, the name of his parents, the name of the family member. this is to anticipate if the child gets lost later.
Don’t Let Children Invite Danger
The aim is not to invite danger. Valuable items in question are like jewelry, also do not wear children with open clothes. Teach to always be vigilant.
That is a guideline for parents to release their children to go alone. But for the record, you should not release children under the age of 7 years. It’s good at that age to always be accompanied by a parent or carer, even if you want to be taught to be brave, do it little by little, and continue to be watched even from a distance. Hopefully it will be useful for parents’ guidelines.
