NIKITIN DEVELOPMENT METHODOLOGY
Recently, developing courses have become increasingly popular, which effectively complement schooling and fill in the gaps of the generally accepted educational system. Close attention of parents deserved classes in mental arithmetic and the so-called pedagogical method of the Nikitins.
WHO IS BORIS AND ELENA NIKITIN?
Boris and Lena Nikitina are the mother and father of a large family. They both had a teacher education. The idea of raising children according to the new system was born by Boris Pavlovich when he was at a young age and worked in the aviation industry. He dreamed of creating his own school, where the young generation would not be brought up according to the hackneyed methods of the Soviet space.
Lena Alekseevna Nikitina after meeting with the most beautiful man, in her words, her husband Boris, gave birth to him seven children. Together, they decided to introduce a new educational methodology in their family. They created an atmosphere of creativity in their home and actively raised and educated their children. Gradually, it was enriched with hypotheses, proofs of the correctness of the theory, and new methods. There were trials and mistakes, but the result was – upbringing according to the new scheme gives its positive results.
ESSENCE OF THE NIKITINS METHODS
Boris and Elena Nikitins can safely be called pioneers of the new domestic pedagogy. They raised their children back in Soviet times, and even then they were able to prove that a non-standard approach to learning gives amazing results.
The Nikitins development methodology is a description of their personal pedagogical experience, which they analyzed and put on shelves for other parents.
PRINCIPLES OF THE NIKITIN SYSTEM
Parents must maintain a balance in the upbringing of the child, bypassing 2 extremes: excessive attention and hyper-care (“overorganization”), as well as ignoring the child (“abandonment”).
It is necessary to give the child maximum freedom – let him play, play sports or draw when he wants and only when it will be interesting to him. No violence or coercion.
It is important to maintain lightness, ease and naturalness. This applies both to the home environment (comfortable clothes, simple cozy atmosphere), and proximity to nature (walks and games in the fresh air, hiking).
Parents should be directly involved in the development of the child: walking, playing, helping to do homework, etc. The involvement and sincere interest of the parents are mandatory features of the Nikitin method.
Nikitins have developed and special educational games for children. To conduct them, you need cubes, small squares, bricks, details of designers, etc. Such games teach children critical thinking, analysis, logic and creativity.
PRINCIPLES OF EDUCATION
The Nikitin education system also has its own upbringing principles:
Each child has the right to choose the activity that he wants to do. But at the same time, mom and dad are required to explain to him that attention should be paid to both the mental and physical development of the body.
There is no need to make a “cabbage” out of a child — put on a large amount of clothing. The warming of the baby should correspond to the time of year. It’s great if there will be as few clothes as possible.
At a young age, a son or daughter should be introduced to different sports, with various simulators and equipment. The task of parents is to instill in the baby a love of sport and physical education.
Mom and dad are obliged in everything to support a son or daughter, always be interested in what is happening in his life, to share his hobbies and hobbies. The child should feel that he and his parents are on the same wavelength, that they love him and are always ready to help.
HOW TO MAKE A DESIRE TO DO?
The Nikitins system will help answer the question that parents so often ask: “How to get a child to do?” In fact, there is nothing complicated. You just need to create a situation for the child in which the development conditions go ahead of the development process itself. For example, you should not give the baby toys that are appropriate for his age. It will be better if you give him games that are more suitable for older children. Then the brain of your son or daughter will work in an accelerated manner. From infancy, children go to what is not yet clear to them, but interesting. Therefore, it is necessary to create conditions under which the child will constantly learn something new.
PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT OF A CHILD BY THE METHOD OF NIKITINS
Nikitins paid great attention to the issue of the physical development of their children. They raised their hardened, hardy, rarely ill.
In order to achieve this result, from early childhood children need:
Get to know the sport
Feed healthy, do not overfeed
Wear comfortable clothing that does not constrain movement
Hardening from childhood is the key to strong immunity. What Nikitins recommend doing for this:
Pour cold water
Walking barefoot in the snow
Observe a certain room temperature.
