The propensity is manifested in the desire of the child to a specific kind of activity - drawing, playing music, writing. But remember that along with the true inclination there can be false (imaginary). Passion can be active at this, but the results are only mediocre.
False inclination is most often the result of parental or teacher, or coaching suggestion, or self-suggestion. If you have noticed that the tendency is imaginary, do not exert strong pressure to improve the results, gently get out of the situation, accustom yourself and the child to the idea that there are countless interesting activities, and he will find his true inclination.
Sometimes parents really want to give their children a musical education, and that's great. However, the advice to you is to find out at the initial stage whether the child has a true inclination to music, if he has the makings of a serious musical education. After all, it is not a secret for anyone that music lessons take a lot of time, therefore one cannot physically work on some attractive kind of activity.
If the tendency is false, and the results will be consistently mediocre, never be annoyed and do not blame the child for laziness! You only poison your life and leave a deep wound in the soul of the child, because he suffers so much that he did not live up to your expectations.
Look for a decent way out: a light irony about stable failures, the humor of Baba Yaga in relation to herself. The fact that a child knows how to play an instrument and is musically educated, undoubtedly, can be useful to him in life, and more than once, by brightening earthly existence.
If you see that a lot of work does not bring the expected result, but the teacher gives you reassurance, consult with an independent specialist, switch to a sparing mode of classes, support your inclination for another kind of activity if you notice it in a child.
It has been experimentally proved that children with weak musical inclinations can successfully study music - for this there are numerous techniques. Even in those children who had no ear for music, after intensive studies according to the appropriate methodology, a steady pitch distinction was formed.
However, differences in the quality of abilities between children who have musical abilities from nature and children who have been trained by special methods are very significant. Children with absolute ear for music need only a few exercises to successfully complete the task. A child with a weak ear for music needs to create additional singing of the pitch.
With a true inclination, there is not only an inclination to a specific activity, but also the rapid achievement of significant results, the advancement to mastery. True inclination forms an emotional-volitional attitude to the chosen type of activity, and this attitude can help to overcome difficulties in achieving success. In such cases, we can talk about the manifestation of special talent.
Addictions are the earliest sign of ability. Addiction signals you about the presence of certain prerequisites for the development of abilities. And know that often the desire for any particular activity manifests itself in children rather early. Treat carefully and carefully the manifestation of early talent.
Children in their abilities are not equal and can not be equal, and this is well known to parents. Abilities distinguish between general (mental) and special abilities. The characteristics of a child's personality that provide relative lightness and productivity in mastering knowledge and determine the general abilities of the child. Special abilities determine the properties that ensure the achievement of high results in knowledge and creativity in a special field, for example, in music, theatrical art, literature.
And how to determine the ability? Under the ability refers to a set of properties of the human person that meet the requirements of a particular activity, and each ability has its own structure with supporting and leading properties. And, of course, the analysis of abilities is always performed in comparison with others.
For example, in the structure of the ability to draw, the reference properties are the figurative memory, the high natural sensitivity of the visual analyzer: a sense of form, proportion, line, chiaroscuro, and leading are the properties of the artistic creative image.
Practice has shown that special abilities are organically linked with general (mental) abilities, so try not to stop classes on their development. The higher the general abilities are developed, the faster and more intense the special abilities can be. In turn, the development of special abilities can have a positive effect on the child's intelligence.
Speaking about the abilities of the child, we always pay attention to his makings, that is, to what is given to him as a gift by nature. Under the inclinations refers to the primary natural basis of ability. Congenital features of the brain are manifested in the typological characteristics of a person, changing in the process of life. These typological features are manifested in the child very early. They are the primary natural properties of your child - his makings.
Typological features have a multifaceted value - they constitute the natural basis and nature and abilities. Mobility, strength, balance are important for the formation of both general and special abilities. The strength of the nervous processes in combination with balance and mobility contributes to the formation of many personality traits.
A weak nervous system, which is highly sensitive, can foster the development of artistic abilities, and parents should remember this - be sensitive to such children. The artistic type is characterized by imagery of thinking, emotionality, integrity and liveliness of perception. This type, as a rule, includes musicians, writers, actors, painters.
The mental type is characterized by the power of abstract thinking. The Thinker transfers the fact from reality to the abstract world of reason. Passion for science can lead to one-sidedness (one-sidedness) in development.
People who have balanced both systems, and most of them, belong to the middle type. This type includes the majority of people exceptionally gifted.
Watch the behavior of your children. If they have a developed imagination, the imagination prevails over abstract thinking, then they have a system of the first type, artistic. Look for the inclination and develop it in the child, and, perhaps, it will help lead to success in life.
Do not forget that abilities are a combination of natural and acquired, they are measured by the level of skill.
Take care of yourself and your children, study their typological features, never be disheartened and live happily
