When to start developing your child, or why our Center is called 3/7.
Hurry up to get engaged in your child’s development.
It’s not too early to start. The Eastern European tradition sees the baby as a “clean sheet”, which awaits information to be written down on. In the ancient Chinese, such “wisdom” would have caused an ironic smile. After all, while in his mother’s womb, a child absorbs emotional impressions, music, intonations and eating habits of his mother. Besides, the information stored in genes lives inside the embryo’s body literally from the moment of conception.
So, birth is not the beginning of life. The Chinese and Vietnamese are more precise in determining the age, who consider person’s years from the moment of his conception. Without understanding speech, a baby has been developing.
It is interesting how the ancient Chinese saw the further development of a child. They argued that human development occurs in seven-year cycles. At the end of each of these cycles, a personality crisis occurs, as a result of which a certain mechanism inside the body is switched.
During the first seven years, a matrix of child’s behavior is formed. He learns to control his body – to walk, to tie his laces, to bend the corners, to keep his balance and much more.
Also at this age, important body principles are laid down: discipline, respect, the “senior-junior” concepts, obedience and order.
It is very easy to recognize an adult, who had a lack of upbringing in his first seven years. He cannot bring things to an end, maintain order and achieve simple goals. Why? Perhaps he was too pitied by his compassionate parents, who hoped that “he would grow up and understand everything himself.”
During the next seven years (age of 8 to 14 years), inside a person, a communicative matrix is formed. Inside the child, emotional sphere actively develops. It is the second seven-year period, which is determined by nature as the optimal period for managing feelings and skills to communicate with society, although, of course, the rudiments of emotional intelligence are formed even inside the mother’s womb.
Note. All the greatest emotional troubles occur at this age. A child makes friends and falls in love for the first time. He understands what betrayal and loyalty are. It is during this period, when he needs to be instilled with moral values: trust, respect, friendship, gratitude and stress-resistance.
A child, in whom moral values were not instilled in time, can grow either insensitive or suffering from imbalance of his emotions. In the first case, he can be quite successful, but hardly happy. In the second case, he often finds “salvation” in alcohol, drugs or promiscuity.
In the third seven years (at the age from 15 to 21 years) thinking as such is formed. Yes, the rudiments of intelligence also work at an early age. A 4 to 5-year-old kid can speak several languages and read books. However, thinking is not so much the ability to absorb information as to apply intelligence to one’s own life.
It is at this age, when a teenager has the opportunity to master his unique level of thinking and understand how other types of thinking function. It is because the inhabitants of our planet do not have single universal intelligence, but ten completely different ways to comprehend reality. They are as distinct as Mercury and Jupiter. Ideally, an education system for each type should be different, but, perhaps, in our country this issue should not be raised for the next ten years.
Ironically, it is the third seven-year period, which is the period of puberty.
Also for this reason, many people, so to speak, do not find time to form their thinking. This is not a problem, but the underdevelopment of any of the three functions of the human “machine” entails limitations in the ability to embody one’s life goals.
When meeting an adult, it is very easy to understand what exactly his parents missed.
Formed correctly or incorrectly, skills – bodily, emotional or intellectual – determine person’s life path, which is commonly called “destiny”.
Following this logic, it is enough to change the behavior pattern in any of these spheres in order to get another destiny. Yes, it is much more difficult to remove the genetic and hereditary features that come from the person’s subconscious and unconscious. Yet, surface changes are achieved by adjusting one’s body, emotions and mind.
But that’s the inconvenience. In an adult, his psyche is already crystallized. If in infancy neural connections are formed with a huge speed, then by the age of 21 they are slowed down to a great extent. To help a person to change his destiny, one has to literally break down the hardened structures. This is a painful and slow process, even if the technology is maintained perfectly, and the adult has understanding and patience.
So, if you want the right destiny for your child, hurry up to do a conscious job on time. Instill discipline and order up to seven years; respect and stress-resilience, up to fourteen years; intelligence and uniqueness, up to 21 years. The child, you released into life will be grateful to you for every skill you have instilled in him in time. After all, it has become an organic part of him. It’s just easier for him to move through life, reaching his boldly set goals.
The most important question in this regard is whether you will do his upbringing on your own or trust it to professionals. It’s not an idle question, because in our time, parents spend most of their time at work, trying to earn money and build their careers. They deal with a child as a residual, hoping for school and sports clubs. Someone is lucky with a judo coach; someone has great grandmothers and grandfathers. However, if your situation is not so cloudless, think carefully.
If you do not instill the right skills in time, it will be difficult to catch up – in truth, it’s almost impossible.
It’s just the right moment to explain why we called our Center 3/7. The consecutive child upbringing during three seven-year periods is one of our approaches – not the only one.
We instill in children the right skills – from discipline at a young age to teamwork skills and task-setting in more adult periods. We also diagnose your child’s type of thinking – the way, in which he comprehends reality and through which he manifests himself. A technique how to develop a genius logician differs from a technique how to develop a genius creative thinker.
The word “genius” was sounded for a good reason. This is another advantage of the Center 3/7. For us, the development of genius in a child is not fiction, but technology. In order to reach the heights of his own possibilities, a young person must first learn how to clearly manifest his own individuality and then learn how to take ideas as if from the air.
We can say that we aspire to take genius to the assembly line. For this, we use a variety of mechanisms: our knowledge of his type of thinking, ability to develop his individual talents, development of his useful skills (like the ability to be a leader) and – of course! – to nurture all these at the right age.
The advanced technologies in upbringing exist today – not anywhere in Finland, but next to you. However, to bring their child to us or not is to be decided, of course, by parents.
And finally: in ancient Greece there was a famous school of Pythagoreans; also in those days, the Lyceum, where Socrates used to teach, became widely known. Both of them insisted that a person could be developed comprehensively. That is, his body, emotions and intelligence could be balanced, helping his unique spirit to manifest itself.
Compare, how different it is from the present time, where the “deformation” of person’s psyche is considered normal. A person can be powerful bodily, but diffident and unfeeling. He can have subtle sensitivity, but he is not at all able to stand up for himself and make money. Behind all these “deformations”, there are missed opportunities, which children could have used, if their parents gave them a little more attention.
Fortunately, humanity is increasingly moving away from the industrial model of education, which main goal is to make the workforce literate. The mass literacy has been introduced, but what to do now with the leveling of possibilities, which turn your child into that very workforce? This is the challenge of the new millennium.
If you want a different future for your child, we can help you. However, remember, you do not have much time.
Cordially yours, Future Education Center 3/7.
