This was reported by the Moskva Agency with reference to the press service of the Moscow Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Population.
"It is impossible to prohibit meetings, even if you do not like the child's chosen one. They will still find an opportunity to see each other. Just control the situation. It is necessary to clearly stipulate the date of the meeting and increase the amount of pocket money so that children can go to the cinema or cafe," the press service quotes the psychologist of the Izmailovo family center Irina Gurova.
She advised parents not to require their children to tell about their experiences if they themselves do not want to. If the child makes contact, then you should find out the name of the chosen one, age, as well as the phone number of his parents, the specialist notes.
Gurova added that first love can remove a child from school, so she recommended that you come up with additional incentives for him that would help him concentrate on his studies. For example, she recommended rewarding her children for good academic performance or achievement in sports.
"Children still do not know how to plan and correctly prioritize, the parental task is to teach them this," the psychologist concluded.
Earlier, Mikhail Popov, a psychologist at the Dialogue family center, said that gadget addiction in children affects the ability to communicate and resolve conflict situations.
He advises parents to draw up a written agreement with children on the rules for using gadgets. It should spell out the rights, obligations and penalties for the violation.
