Coaching Parents in Storytelling Pahrump NV

There are parents, siblings, teachers, and friends. There are also characters who are dealing with the same situations they are. In this way, stories help children know they are not alone in their problems. They also let them see someone else handle the issue. Once exposed to how a storybook character masters a difficult situation, children are often inspired to tackle their own problems.

Stories take us to magical places. They take us outside the realm of our reality and immerse us in a world of possibilities. These possibilities make storytelling an excellent tool for helping children meet the challenges of everyday living. Many children find it hard to discuss their problems. They may feel embarrassed, guilty or shy. Stories offer them a safe place to explore and identify their emotions. When children hear or read stories they become part of another world. It is a world similar to the one in which they live. There are parents, siblings, teachers, and friends. There are also characters who are dealing with the same situations they are. In this way, stories help children know they are not alone in their problems. They also let them see someone else handle the issue. Once exposed to how a storybook character masters a difficult situation, children are often inspired to tackle their own problems.

Accentuate the positive. Make sure that the story you choose has a positive message and positive values. The story is your tool. It is what will help you give your child the confidence to succeed. By seeing a character overcome a tough situation, the child gets the message it is possible. That he can do it too.

Choose a good time and place. Choosing when and where you share stories with your child can be as important as the story itself. Children will not benefit fully from the message if they are not focused. Pick a comfortable place with no noise or distractions. Choose a time when your child is more centered and less restless. If you have a young child, hold him close or on your lap so that there will be a connection. Also, if you are reading to more th...
