A child may get as much as one-fourth of his intellectual growth in these years. The learning abilities girls and boys develop will, to a large extent, determine their success in fur- ther learning as they enter school. How fast and how much they develop depen- ds on the stimulation they get and their reaction to it. Children mature at different rates - some are precocious; some are late bloomers. Growing up is a many sided process. Development in each area depends on the progress in several others. Growth in ,e~ch often comes in spurts. ' ; There are so many attitudes and skills that a child needs to develop in the two or three years preceding en- trance into formal school that without a plan parents might well overlook a crucial one. The activities needed to get a child ready for arithmetic and reading alone must be engaged in over a long period to insure a child's success when the time comes. Learning must be kept a happy ex- perience. Trying to crowd too much in too short a time can produce pressure on the child and in so doing actually stops progress. Parents should conver- se with their child about the learning taking place and keep development progressing with the child succeeding at each step before being pressured to move on to the next. Make your child feel secure. A secure child is free to turn his thoughts and energies to learning. Home and family are the most important elements in every preschool child's life. Your child must feel secure and wanted and feel that he is a worthwhile member of the family. Make them a part by letting them help. "Help" mother get ready for the evening meal. He can pick up his toys, set the table. It's a game to "help," - but worthwhile even if it takes kind firmness to get compliance to requests. Build their self-confidence. Parents should take thought and build security little by little. Include them in discussions and planning of family trips or picnics. He can learn to pay atten- tion, accept direction, and be willing to try new activities - each new thing lear- ned (and rewarded with parental ap- proval) adds to a child's confidence that he can learn. Through activities such as these a child learns to accept teaching and will be teachable when he enters school.
