Toleransi di Indonesia Saat Ini

Toleransi di Indonesia saat ini, kurasakan semakin memudar. Toleransi yang dulu semenjak kecil digaungkan baik melalui pendidikan formal di sekolah atau melalui praktik sehari-sehari di kehidupan nyata pada sekitarku, sangat mudah ditemukan dan kurasakan. 
Namun kini setelah aku dewasa, berkeluarga dan di masa reformasi yang telah lebih dari 2 dekade ini, toleransi ini entah seperti menguap. Perbedaan-perbedaan kecil dibuat semakin meruncing. Bahkan yang pada awalnya kita tidak merasakan perbedaan itu dibuat merasa bahwa kini kita berbeda.

You must be bored when you had read the books for your children more than 10 times. Your children perhaps had already know the story but still want to be read it by you, because he still can not read. My children still 3 yo.

Sometimes we can also ask the picture to him if he skip the picture when telling the story to us. It will boost his language intellegence as well as his self esteem.

Growing Reading Interest for Children Day 9 (Not Only Read the Book but Tell the Story in It)

To read and to tell a story is quite different. When telling a story, you must have the energy and blend with the story being told. Intonation plays a big role here. Especially when your children wants you to read it 3-4 times in a row, maintain the energy is quite challenging. You have to read it in a different version each time. So in my experience, I'm not reading every single words there in the books but I used my own words every time I read it in the second, third, forth and so on times.

Growing Reading Interest for Children Day 8 (Let Your Children Choose the Book)

When I go to the bookstore or a library, just let my son to choose and pick the books he like.

Eventhough he still can not read now, loving books that I want him to have. So by the time he can read, he not only just can read but loved to read because he had already loved the books.

Growing Reading Interest for Children Day 4 (Manner's Book)

This manner's book is my favorite book for him. Not his favorite book. Through this book, it is really easier to teach him about simple manner. Using a lot of simple picture in one page can tell a story that give a clear message about manner.Eventhough it is not his favorite book, he still enjoy and excited when I read the book for him. It took more than one time to finished the book. So I read it just a couple pages then stop when I saw my son had already not pay attention to the book.

Otherwise, something bad will happen. Because, in every rule that mom said to her children have a point to protect them. Children should know this, therefore they will volunterally obey every rule their mom said because they know it is for their own good. By reading this kind of story to them regularly, my children love it. The message will unconsiously go to their brain and their heart. My children can asked me 10 times a day to read this book.
