Some mothers asked me on how can they tell stories to their children effectively. Some asked how to train they children to be able to speak in public through storytelling practice.
Well, as mothers, we do tell stories. In fact, some of us tell too much of the stories that we did not realise about it.
What exactly stories that we tell?
Most of the time, when we asked our children certain questions, they are already telling us their stories.
And when our children asked us questions, we are telling our stories in return.
However, a story which leave and give impact are those which arranged in certain manner.
Stories are normally begin with an introduction.
It follows with the content which include plot and conflict or situation.
There will be at least 3 types of 3 adventures in it, before it ends with a solution which normally a happy ending.
That’s about it!
When we talk and speak to our children, it is nest wham they show their interest.
Even when they asked a simple and routine question like, “Mom, what will we have for dinner?”, we can always turn it to be our story or their story.
it will become our story when we and were the question.
It will be come theirs, as they and were our question.
The KEY: Give time. Be patient. Listen. Speak slow and steady.
At the beginning, our story could only be 10 sentences.
That is already a heat start.
Happy telling mothers!
