Saving energy for kids

The psychologists tell us how the child will later relate to yourself, others and life in General – is totally dependent on the parents. Life may seem to him an endless holiday or exciting trip, and that may seem like a boring, thankless, and hard work, when you visit the school. The child perceives the world through the eyes of the adults – the parents.

There are external factors that affect family traditions. Modern standard of life and the progress dictate the rules, and there is nothing special about three to four years, easily cope with the complexities of the computer turning on and off the lighting in the rooms. With the inclusion of a TV and watching children's programs. It also opens and closes the valves with the water, know where the hot water where cold. Gently touch the radiators, and know that the heating works when it's cold outside, and not work when warm.

After 5 – 7 years of age already interested in the questions: where does the gas and as it comes in?; why is it necessary to fill the car with fuel and where they come from?; why is a power (at the time of viewing of children's programs), and water (when a child takes a bath), and who do not depend on?; for this reason you need to leave the city and breathe clean air and play in the yard with their friends?

All these problems are somehow related to the conservation of energy, the environment, relevant in our time and concerned adults. Could be interested in saving children from 5 to 10 years? If you consciously contribute to its solution?

Respond immediately, if in the interest of adult family members. There are a number of children's educational programs in the field of energy efficiency and the environment in Belarus, Russia, Ukraine for pre-school and school educational institutions. However, it must be said that these programs are not mandatory for learning and training is conducted on a voluntary basis. But the day is near when congress passed the appropriate legislation and the problems of the energy-saving, energy-saving for kids is as clear as the rules of conduct, the history of his native land, the geography, etc.

The child quickly mastered these concepts to the kindergarten, in primary school, which needed help to make it to the family. After 5 years, the child begins to perceive the world in a playful way. He really likes games and especially if he was playing his favorite people: father, mother, brother, sister, grandparents.

I was myself the witness of a good pedagogical approach to the economical consumption of water in the young people of the family. A mother taught her 4 year old son alone in brushing your teeth in the morning and the afternoon. When the question is about the family Council was about saving water, with the aim of reducing payment for your consumer, mother organized a game with my son, which saves water and brushing your teeth. Show son immensely, and he was convinced that the drum counter is spinning when you open the tap. Explains how to save water and brushing your teeth (I hope you know how to do) and that offers a reward for those who save more.

Game boy liked it so much that the arrival of his 3-year-old little cousin (we hear their conversation), at a time when they were together in the bathroom and was brushing your teeth, alternatively, a senior taught Junior to open the tap only to rinse the toothbrush and absorption of water for rinsing the mouth in the cup. He ended the conversation with the kids the phrase, ' tomorrow with my mom view the water meter and will receive a prize!

Another example. Father to his five year old son proposed a game – good things. The list of good actions that can make a boy, was much: help the mother to clean up the toys after themselves and their younger sister, to bring and present to the Pope a tool in the past performance on any type of repair, etc. At the end of each day, the family of the Council to register all the good deeds performed by the son and sealed by results. The father invited the child to the list of good deeds include saving energy, showed the marker electric meters with numbers and explained what should be done to the amount was less.

At this age, children know the numbers and can distinguish a large number of small. For this type of business that offers a special prize. A week later, 5 years of age, the child clearly learned, if there is no one in the room, the light should be turned off if you come out of the bathroom, the light should be off if no one is watching the TELEVISION, it needs to be shut down. He did it himself, or resembled the adult. Came to the point that sometimes the parents, to their detriment, refused to watch the TELEVISION, the understanding of the importance of the skills acquired for his son.

These examples show that the problems in the family to reduce utility payments for the energy consumed can be solved with the help of the children, while to the child to develop the skills, careful attitude to the resources for which the family pays money. This is the energy saving in childhood. And, very important, these concepts and skills are transformed into rules of behaviour for saving energy in the home, their children learn from the more close, and after talking with them for a longer time.
