Your Child 6 to 12 DVD

I bought Your Child 6 to 12 at Booksale in Greenhills last month. I've forgotten about this DVD but because I couldn't  sleep  last night I saw it along with my piles of books lying around the corner. I learned a lot from this DVD. I hope you'd be able to still get a copy at any Book Sale.

This is open to all readers of this blog but you have to have a Philippine address where I can send you this DVD. Winner will be chosen via fish ball draw, by my son Juancho.

This DVD is playable in all  regions so I didn't have to wake my husband to help me set up the player. This three-part series with best-selling author John Drescher will help parents to appreciate the preciousness of the pre-teen years.

In Program One you will learn this is the last great chance to hold your child, spend time with your child, instill values, read to your child, help your child to develop a sense of feeling, and to teach the facts of sex.

To highlight what I learned in Program One:
- Love is spelled T-I-M-E
- Every child is different. Every child has different needs.
-  Apply the knife where the need is. 
- Bed time is very important to spend time with children. This is the time when the child is vulnerable to confess wrongdoings or tell you how much you mean to the child.
- Last good chance to read to your child, to  discuss morality, stories that have caring, love, sharing, compassion.
-  Middle childhood has memory of elephant so be very careful in making promises. They'll hold you to it.
- Last chance to teach about sex so that they will not be confused by the outside forces.
- Good time to discuss vocations.
- Great age of feeling. Expose them to positive, encouraging people who will be a good influence.

In Program Two John illuminates the special characteristics of middle childhood, telling parents how to build loving relationships with their child by understanding and meeting his/her emotional needs. We learn of the child's  need for encouragement and of belonging, the love of adventure, the need to be active, the need to imitate, the need for affection, and the need to develop feelings.

To highlight what I learned in Program Two:

- The relationship of father and mother. A child that sees a loving relationship of the parents will feel secured.
- The child needs to hear words of love and see actions of love.
- Imitation stage - modelling, the parents must be the primary model.
- Need for encouragement.
- The great corrective to behavior. 
-  The main reason why a child wants to be good is not the fear of punishment. The main reason is because of encouragement. 

The power of encouragement. Benjamin West painter
- Praise the child, find every moment, every happening for what the child can help. to find good deeds it will encourage them to be better by Sir Walter Scott
- The power of negative has detrimental impact.
- Middle childhood is s active and noisy. Great time to develop some hobby, talk together,play together.
- Great need for belonging. Doing things together.
- Love for adventure - "join hands now and you will likely have teens latet who will want to join hands with you".

In Program Three John Drescher examines the conscience, the spiritual development of the child, and how the child derives identity, adequacy and worth.

To highlight what I learned in Program Three:

Identity - is developed to the parent of  opposite sext. Son to mother, daughter to father.
Adequacy - is developed from the parent of  same opposite (son to father, daughter to mother
Worth - worth is derived from both parents

This material will help you to develop a stronger understanding and relationship with your child as he/she heads into the critical teen years. Now is the time to spend time with your child and build a relationship, before they reach the teen years.
