At the early age of 0-6 years, the brain develops very rapidly up to 80 percent. At that age the brain to receive and absorb various kinds of information, does not look good and the bad. It was a time-period in which the physical, mental and spiritual child will begin to form. Because of this, many are calling this period as a golden boy periods (golden age).
A study conducted by an expert in child development and behavior of Americans named Brazelton says that the experience of the child in the first months and years of life will determine whether the child will be able to face the challenges in life and whether she will demonstrate a passion to learn and succeed in the workplace.
Now, therefore, we as parents should take advantage of a golden period to give children a good education for the children of character. So that children can achieve success in life and success in the future. We as parents sometimes are not aware, our attitude to children it will drop the child. For example, with a hit, giving pressure which ultimately makes the child a negative attitude, low self-esteem or self-conscious, timid and afraid to take risks, which in the end these characters will be brought up to an adult.
When such a mature character would become an obstacle for him to achieve and fulfill his desire. For example, there could be a public speaker because he was embarrassed or ashamed. Not willing to take certain chances because he did not want to take the risk and fear of failure. In fact, if he is to be positive, the risk can be modified as a challenge to achieve success. You agree not you?
Many say our success is determined by how genius brain. The more we are, the more successful genius. The more we won the class championship title in a row, then the more successful we are. Is this true? Wait wait!
I myself do not agree with these assumptions. Facts prove, many successful people just do not get brilliant achievement in school, they do not get a champion or a top position at the school. Why is that? Because the truth is success is not only determined by our intelligence alone. But success is more determined by the dominant emotional skills to bring up our relationship with ourselves, others and the environment. Moreover, that should not be left out is our spiritual relationship with God Almighty.
Did you know that the skills to build relationships with the three pillars (self, social, and God) is a character-character owned by successful people. And, let me tell you that the character is not entirely inborn. Such characters can be formed.
Wow, really? I say Yes! And when the child was aged early-formed characters that. As we discussed earlier, that early childhood is a period character development of physical, mental and spiritual child begins to form. At this early age, the character will be formed from the children learn and absorb from our behavior as parents and from the surrounding environment. At this age mental developments take place very quickly. At that age the child also becomes very sensitive and insensitive to learn and practice something he sees, feels and listens from the environment. Therefore, a positive environment will shape the character of positive and successful.
Then, how to build character of children from an early age?
Characters will be formed as a result of understanding 3 relationships that must be experienced every human (triangle relationship), the relationship with oneself (intrapersonal), the environment (social relationships and environment), and the relationship with the Almighty God (spiritual). Any result that relationship will provide interpretation / understanding of what eventually became the child's values and beliefs. Shape the way children understand the relationship will determine how the child treats his world.
Understanding will negatively impact on the treatment of negative and positive understanding will treat her world positively. For that, cultivate positive understanding in children from an early age, one way to give confidence to the child to make decisions for herself, helping kids steer their potential so they are better able to explore by itself, does not suppress either directly or subtly , and so on. Familiarize children socialize and interact with their surroundings.
Remember the choice for the environment largely determines the character formation of the child. As the saying goes along with the seller fragrant perfume will participate, along with fishy fish vendors will participate. As such, a good and healthy environment will foster healthy and good character, and vice versa. And that can not be ignored is building a spiritual relationship with God Almighty. Spiritual relationship with God Almighty awakened through implementation and appreciation of ritual worship implemented in social life.
