Dear readers, we’ve considered together many important issues on development and education of babies. So today I want to share a brief review of education approaches based on the studies of Glen Doman, he offers two ways how to boost intelligence of children – wrong and right one. The choice is up to you which way is the most appropriate. These approaches to education can be used as for older children so for the youngest ones.
How to make your child a chowderhead
Recipe for the creation of stupidity
1. Teach out of duty rather as a privilege.
2. Talk monotonously and without enthusiasm.
3. Be tense.
4. Show doubt in your manner and action.
5. Don’t give him any new information.
6. Show old information over and over again.
7. Give him information accidently – randomly.
8. Make the learning materials small and hard to see.
9. Provide a chaotic environment in which to learn.
10. Teach him when he is unhappy, angry, tired or in pain.
11. Always show material very, very slowly.
12. Don’t stop a teaching session until he says “Stop!” or walks away in disgust.
13. Suspect that he does not really know it.
14. Bet against him.
15. Refuse to change your approach; do everything the same way each day.
16. Bribe him to get him to learn.
17. Tell him myth rather than truth.
18. Forget promises made to him.
19. Correct him often.
20. Test him often (if he succeeds, assume it was a lucky guess; if he fails, be certain he does not know it).
21. When he asks a question, tell him to go and play.
