Being able to communicate, express what we feel or what we think and know how to transmit it is fundamental in all areas of our life, both in the personal and in the academic and what to say of the professional. How many of us are terrified of job interviews because of that fear of expressing ourselves to others.
For many adults, speaking in public without shame or shame is unthinkable, and that insecurity is transferred to children without realizing it. How many children are terrified of the idea of going to the blackboard when the teacher tells them to tell something to their classmates!Public speaking is a pending subject today.
There are few educational centers where the art of speaking eloquently is taught. As mothers, fathers and educators we can help bridge that gap that allows today's children to learn to communicate their feelings, emotions and opinions without fear. Something very positive not only for their family environment but also in the school environment and for their professional future.
1- Boost children's self-esteem. One of the main walls that we can find when children express themselves in public is the fear of failure, the fear of doing it wrong or of being criticized by others. To avoid this we can enhance the moments in which children express themselves, without anticipating what they are going to say despite the fact that they take time to express themselves, also avoid downplaying the comments they may make, no matter how vain they may seem, but quite the opposite. reinforcing and motivating that communication in a positive way, so that they learn to believe in themselves.
2- Encourage communication at home without forcing them to tell us what they did at school or what was the most fun of the day, or how they feel. We can start by showing them that we also communicate by telling them how our day has been so that they are encouraged to tell us about their personal experience. Maybe at the beginning they don't like or don't want to participate in the game, but if they see that their mother or father express themselves and communicate with them constantly, it will give them confidence to learn to express their feelings without fear or shame.
3- Read them stories very often being very expressive so that they learn that it not only communicates with the voice but also with the body, and encourage them to read them to us in this way as well. Even at an early age when they can't read yet, we can encourage them to tell us stories in their own way.
4- Teach them to put themselves in the place of the other favoring the feeling of empathy. Play to be another person. For example, that mom or dad play the ‘role’ or role of their child, and vice versa ...
5.- Encourage them to ask without fear when they have not understood something orencourage them to ask when they want to know more about something reinforcing the effort made is essential.
6- The performing arts can help children lose their modesty to express themselves not only with public speaking but also with their body, gaining confidence in themselves and favoring their self-esteem.
7- Dance can also be an ally in this regard since it helps the child to know his body and at the same time learns to transmit feelings and sensations with it.
8- Promote discussions and communication between family members and friends on different topics. For children to learn to listen to different opinions and to respect different ideas.
9- Relaxation is essential. Preventing the child from having a feeling of nervousness or stage fright also helps with relaxation exercises, such as 4-7-8: we breathe in through the nose for 4 seconds, we hold the air for 7 and we release slowly for 8 seconds .
10- Enjoy with board games such as ‘Time Up’ or ‘Taboo’, in which children have to describe objects so that we can guess them through clues or mime games, they also favor public speaking, in addition to being fun and encouraging creativity.
