How to turn a teenager into a man

It was 1993. At that time I was renting a 2-room apartment in which we lived with my youngest son, Ilya, who was twelve years old. The eldest son studied at a music school and lived in another city, often coming for the weekend. Then I had good opportunities in the implementation of new knowledge on the education of the youngest son.

He studied poorly, but thanks to his good memory and quick wits, he managed to finish a quarter without twos. And taking into account the transitional age and its difficult nature, I decided to focus more on the formation of masculine qualities.

I realized that you can bring up without prohibitions and punishments, the main thing is to transfer the desired freedom to a teenager along with responsibility. For this, I set myself the task: to learn not to emotionally respond to any tricks of my son, that is, to maintain complete inner calm. Only six months later, I coped with this task. This was necessary to Continue reading

The difference in physiology and psychology

No one will argue that there is a difference between boys and girls. What is the external difference alone? But how else and why do they differ from each other?

It turns out that the representatives of the weaker sex hear and distinguish sounds close to high-frequency ones much better than the representatives of the stronger. This explains the fact that mom will hear the crying of the child through a dream, and dad will sleep peacefully further. But, in turn, a man will quickly understand where the sound comes from. This skill helps the hunter locate future prey.
More girls have wider peripheral vision. They are able to clearly see the space at an angle of 45 degrees up, down, right and left. Nature did this for a reason, because with such an ability it is much easier for any female to make sure that the cubs do not run away and are not in danger. But the boys have the ability to see ahead, into the distance, which in the Continue reading

Home schooling: pros and cons

In my time, all first graders were still “automatically” credited in October, and then they began to appeal to their “October conscience”, etc. Towards the end of the first grade, my son realized that no one asked him if he wanted to be October. He began to ask me questions. And after the summer holidays (at the beginning of the second grade) he announced to the teacher that he was “leaving October”. The school began to panic.

At home, my son and I quite often told each other about our news (on the principle of “what was interesting today”). And I began to notice that in his stories about school too often situations of this type were mentioned: “Today I started reading such an interesting book – in mathematics.” Or: “Today I began to write the score of my new symphony – on history.” Or: “But Petya, it turns out, plays chess very well – we managed to play a couple of games in geography.” I thought: why does he even go to school? To study? But in the lessons he does completely different things. To Continue reading
