To do this, in the family should be the tradition that children should learn and lead in their future homes. About the tradition of the economy, on the emergence of the skills of energy savings in children, we're going to talk about in this article.

Energy saving for children

The psychologists assert, as a child, subsequently, it will refer to itself, others and life in general – is entirely dependent on their parents. Life may present you infinite vacation or an exciting trip, and can be seen as a boring, thankless, and hard work, during the visit to the school. The child perceives the world through the eyes of the adults of their parents.

There are external factors that influence family traditions. The current level of life and progress dictate its rules, and that there's nothing special that the three – to-four years, the baby easily wins the secret of the computer, with the inclusion and disconnection of the lighting in the rooms. With the inclusion of the television and the viewing of children's programmes. It also opens and closes the water faucets, knows where hot water, where cold water. Gently tap the radiators of the heating and you know that the heating works when it's cold, and it doesn't work, when the heat in the street.

After 5 – 7 years of age, he is already interested questions: where does the gas and how it enters in the apartment?; why should you fill the car with fuel and where is your origin?; why turn off the electricity (at the time of the review of the children's programs) and the water (when the child is washed in the bathroom) and who depends on?; why do you have to get out of the city and breathe the fresh air, and not to play in the yard with their friends?

All of these problems, in one way or another, are related to the saving of energy, environment, are relevant in our time and concern to adults. Can the interested in the energy savings of the young children of 5 to 10 years of age? If you can be recognized to contribute in their solution?

We will respond immediately– can, if you are interested adult members of the family. There are a number of childhood training programs in the field of energy saving and environment in belarus, russia, ukraine for preschoolers and school of higher education. The truth, I must say that these programs are not-compulsory education and training is carried out on a voluntary basis. But it is not far the day when we take governmental regulations and the saving of energy, saving energy for the children are as clear as the rules of conduct, the history of his native province, geography and other

For children quickly assimilated these concepts in the kindergarten, in the early grades of school, you should help to do this in the family. After 5 years, the child begins to explore the world in the form of a game. You like to play games and, above all, if with him to play your loved ones: mom, dad, brother, sister, grandmother and grandfather.

I was the witness of the good pedagogical approach to the conservation of water consumption in the young family. Mother teaches her 4 years of child brushing teeth in the morning and at night. When the question on the family council was on the saving of water, in order to reduce payment for your consumer, mom organized the game with the son, who is the one that will save the water during the cleaning of the teeth. Showed the son of the water meter, and ensured that the drum of the counter of the tour, when you open the faucet. He explained how to save water during the cleaning of the teeth (I hope, you already know how), and offered a reward for the more you save.

The game son liked it so much that when you reach your 3 years old cousin brother (we have by chance your conversation), at a time when they were together in the bathroom, and washed, alternatively, the teeth, the greater of the aleccionaba less open the tap only to rinse the toothbrush and the font of water for the rinse of the mouth of the jug. I had just the conversation of the children of the phrase, – morning with my mom to see the water meter and will receive the prize!

Another example. The dad of his son of five years proposed to the game and good works. On the list of good things that I could do baby, I got a lot of: help my mom, fix the toys and behind the younger sister, to bring and present to the pope of the tool when it is executed the last of any repair, etc, at the end Of each day, in family council to record all the good deeds performed by the son and the stamping points. The pope invited the son on the list of good works to activate the energy-saving, showed the marker of the metro electric, with figures and explained that there is to do to that the amount was less.

At this age, children learn about numbers and can distinguish between a greater number of less. For the realization of a good cause, we offered a special prize. After a week of 5 years of age, the baby clearly learned, if there is no one in the room of the children, the light must be disconnected, if bath salts, the light should turn off, if no one watches tv, he needs to shut down. What he himself did, or remembered to adults. The issue has come to the point that sometimes the parents, to the detriment of themselves refused to watch tv programs, conscious of the importance of the training, that you get from your children.
