Introduction 序言 OUR AMAZING CHILDREN 我們了不起的孩子 Children grow and learn from the moment they are conceived. Babies begin to learn

about their world after only a few weeks in the womb. Between birth and age 3, babies learn to roll, crawl, stand, walk, and run. They learn to talk, joke, rhyme, and sing. But children do not all grow in the same way and at the same time. Some children will develop certain skills (like walking or talking) faster or slower than others. These differences are very normal.

It is important for you to understand your own child, build on their strengths, and provide them with love and support. Development happens through loving relationships, ones in which babies and toddlers can explore, learn, and grow.

從成孕的那一刻起,孩子已開始 成長和學習。 嬰兒在子宮内只有數個

星期,已開始認識他們的世界。 從出生到 三歲這一段時間,嬰兒學習了轉身、爬行、 站立、行走和跑步。 他們還學習說話、開玩 笑、韻律和唱歌。 但不是全部小孩子都以 同樣的方式及於同一時間成長。 有些孩 子會比其他孩子快一些或慢一點發展某 些技能(如走路或說話) ,這些分別是完 全正常的。 了解你的孩子是對你十分重要的,你能幫 助發展孩子的耐力,提供愛與支持。在愛 的關係中,培育成長發展,嬰兒和幼兒才 會探索、學習和成長。 This booklet has been developed to provide you with practical information on how to best support, encourage and help your child grow.

本手冊是為你設計的,提供了許多實 用的信息,教你如何好好地支持、鼓 勵及幫助你的孩子成長。

p. 4 | Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 / 2018年兒童發展及資源指南

You are the most important person in your child’s life. As parents, you are the true experts on children. But raising a child is a big job to do alone. You need to know how you can help your children grow and develop so they are ready for school and life. You need to know when to ask questions and where to go for help.

✓ T IP / 提示

One of the ways your children learn is through playing. You can help your child learn by: ✓✓ Encouraging their natural desire to play ✓✓ Making sure they play where it is safe to explore ✓✓ Stepping back and watching them learn for themselves 玩耍是孩子學習的方法之一,你可通過以 下的方式幫助你的孩子: ✓✓ 鼓勵孩子玩耍的天性 ✓✓ 確保孩子玩耍時的安全 ✓✓ 在旁監護,給孩子空間,放手讓他們自 己學習

We believe that children are also the responsibility of the whole community. There are many people in Richmond who have experience and who can provide help if you need it.

This booklet has been developed to provide you with practical information on how to best support, encourage and help your child grow. 你是孩子生命中最重要的人。 作為家長, 你是培育孩子的真正專家。 但是,養育孩 子是一項非常龐大的工作,你必須知道如 何幫助孩子成長和發展,為他們日後上學 和生活做好準備。 你需要知道何時去諮詢 問題,以及向哪裏尋求援助。 我們相信,培養孩子也是整個社會的責 任。 列治文有眾多經驗豐富的專家,能為 你提供所需的援助。

Dental Health & Children 小孩與牙齒健康

BUILDING HEALTHY TEETH 保持牙齒健康 Healthy baby teeth are important to your child’s growth and development. Baby teeth are meant to last. Many baby teeth do not fall out until your child is 10-12 years old. Take care of baby teeth. Tooth decay can start as soon as teeth come in. If you start good habits early, tooth decay can be prevented.

BEFORE YOUR CHILD GETS TEETH: •As a parent, you should get your mouth in as good shape as possible. Tooth decay bacteria spreads from you to your child. Make sure your teeth are healthy •Ensure your baby unlatches from breast or bottle when they fall asleep •Clean inside your baby’s mouth every day with a damp washcloth

健康的乳齒對你子女的成長和發 展十分重要。 乳齒應一直保持,其 中不少乳齒到孩子10至12歲才 會脫落。 小心護理乳齒,因為蛀牙 可能早至出牙時便開始。 如果你 能及早為子女養成良好的護齒習 慣,是可以預防蛀牙的。 孩子出牙之前:

•作為家長,你應保持自己的口腔健康。 確保你牙齒的健康,才可預防蛀牙病菌 從你傳染給你的嬰兒 •嬰兒入睡後,應確保他們的嘴巴不再含 著乳頭或奶瓶 •每天用濕布清潔嬰兒的口腔内部

p. 48 | Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 / 2018年兒童發展及資源指南


•Use a small, soft toothbrush to clean the teeth twice a day •Brush with a small amount of toothpaste (about the size of a grain of rice) to keep the teeth strong •Teach your child to drink from a cup as soon as they can sit up


•It is time for a dental visit. Tooth decay can be stopped if treated early. Your dentist will talk about daily care, teething, fluoride, and eating habits. They will let you know how often they would like to see your child •Keep brushing with toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day •Teeth that touch should be flossed once a day •Offer water between meals •Your child should no longer be using a bottle


•每天兩次用一把細小、柔軟的牙刷清潔 嬰兒的牙齒 •用少量的牙膏(約一粒米的大小)為嬰 兒刷牙,保持牙齒堅固 •嬰兒一懂得坐起,立即教他們用杯來 喝飲料


•是時候檢查牙齒了,萬一發現蛀牙,也 可盡早治療。 牙醫會和你談到日常護理 牙齒的常識、出牙時期、含氟牙膏、飲食 習慣等,也會告訴你每隔多久再帶孩子 來見牙醫 •堅持每天兩次,使用牙刷和含氟的牙膏 替嬰兒刷牙 •每日一次,使用牙線來清潔牙齒與牙齒 之間的牙縫 •兩餐之間給嬰兒喝水 •你的嬰兒不應再用奶瓶了

Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 49


•Your child should have all their baby teeth now •Offer small healthy snacks at set times and water between meals. Frequent eating and drinking liquids other than water can lead to tooth decay •Keep up the good work brushing for your child – your child won’ t be able to do a good job brushing their teeth until they are around 8 years old •Brush with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste twice a day now •Visit the dentist regularly

Congratulations! You have built some healthy dental habits. Regular dental visits; good daily oral care; and healthy eating will help keep your child’s baby teeth in good shape. Between the ages of 6 and 12 years, your child has both baby and adult teeth in their mouth. Healthy baby teeth lead to healthy adult teeth.


•孩子的乳齒現在應該出齊了 •在正餐之間定時給孩子吃健康的小食 和喝水,經常進食和喝其他飲料會引 起蛀牙 •繼續幫你的孩子刷牙 - 孩子要到8歲左 右,才懂得好好地自己刷牙 •每日兩次用一粒豌豆大小的含氟牙膏 來替孩子刷牙 •定期帶孩子約見牙醫

恭喜你!你已經為子女養成保持 牙齒健康的好習慣。 定期檢查牙 齒、良好的日常口腔護理以及健 康的飲食習慣,將有助維持你孩 子的乳齒健康。 在6歲到12歲期 間,孩子的口腔內既有乳齒又有 恆齒。 乳齒健康,恆齒也會健康。

Feeding Young Children 餵養小孩 MORE THAN FOOD 什麽比食物更加重要

Feeding and mealtimes are important for children to grow healthy and strong. But feeding and mealtimes means much more than just food. Feeding is about nurturing the whole child, their body, mind and heart. It is the way children learn to feel good about themselves and to trust their caregivers to care for them. Feeding is about building the strong relationships that make children feel loved, safe and secure.

餵養和定時飲食,對於孩子的健 康及強壯地成長,是非常重要的, 但我們不單只是考慮食物的問 題。 餵養是培養孩子的全面發展, 包括他們的身體和心智,讓孩子 從中學習良好的自我感覺,並信 任照顧者對他們的關愛。 餵養有 助建立牢固的關係,使孩子覺得 被愛和安全。

✓ TIP / 提示

I ron R i ch Foods :

✓✓ Meat (beef, pork, lamb, goat etc.), poultry, fish (low mercury fish) ✓✓ Legumes – soybeans, kidney ✓✓ beans, black beans lentils, chickpeas, peas, tofu ✓✓ Egg yolks ✓✓ Nuts and seeds ✓✓ Enriched baby cereals

鐵質 含 量 豐 富 的 食 物 :


Six months of age is the right time to offer nutritious foods. Your baby is then ready to learn to eat real food. They can sit up, and their tongue can move the food back to swallow. Learning about new tastes and textures is important. Your baby can eat many of the same healthy foods enjoyed by the rest of the family. Offer your baby foods that are rich in iron. Choose foods made with little or no added salt or sugar. Be patient. Children need to try a new food often before it is accepted. Studies tell us that some young children need to try new foods 10 to 15 times before they will eat it. Children learn about food by touching, licking and tasting. Learning to eat food is messy. Your baby can enjoy mashed foods before teeth appear. Pureed foods are not needed as long as the texture is soft. This includes: minced, mashed, ground, lumpy and tender-cooked. By 1 year, baby is learning to eat soft foods cut into small pieces.

✓✓ 肉類(牛肉、豬肉、羊肉、山羊肉等)、 家禽、魚(水銀含量低的魚類) ✓✓ 豆類 - 黃豆、腰豆 ✓✓ 小豆、 黑豆、 扁豆、 鹰嘴豆、 豌豆、 豆腐 ✓✓ 蛋黃 ✓✓ 堅果和種籽 ✓✓ 添加濃縮營養成分的嬰兒穀類食品


當孩子六個月大時,是開始提供營養食品 的好時機。 孩子已準備好學習進食真正的 食物,他們可以坐起,舌頭可以把食物推 到嘴的後方然後吞下。 學會吃新口味和新 口感的食物是非常重要的,孩子也可以吃 你家人吃的許多健康食品,給孩子吃含有 豐富鐵質的食物,只選擇那些用很少或完 全沒有添加鹽或糖的食物。

保持耐性,孩子需要經常嘗試,才會接受 新的食物。 研究顯示,有些小孩子需要試 吃一種新食物10到15次,才會吃下這種 食物。 孩子是透過觸摸、舔和嚐來學習了 解新食物。 學習吃食物是件麻煩凌亂的事 情,孩子的乳齒出現之前,可吃糊狀食品, 如果食物是軟身的,可以不用打成糊狀, 這包括:絞碎、搗碎、磨碎、塊狀和煮得柔 軟的食物。 小朋友1歲時,便可學習進食切 成小塊的軟身食物。

Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 53


Eating together, is a time to connect, a time to support your child’s overall development. Even if your baby is not eating food, they can sit with you, and enjoy the family mealtime. By 9 months, set up regular meal and snack times. Aim for 3 meals and 2-3 snacks by 1 year of age.

Always eat with your children and never let them eat alone. Turn the TV and computer off and talk with your child. The television and computer are too distracting and they take time away from eating and pleasant conversation. Talking to your children at mealtimes shows them you are interested and care about them. They discover and explore new foods and new eating skills but also discover and develop language. If you love eating broccoli, so will your children. Enjoy eating meals together and your children will follow your lead. It is your job to make mealtimes pleasant. So, do not force feed. Children end up refusing the food and eating less. It does not lead to good eating habits, nor does it help develop positive self-esteem. Let children decide which foods to eat of those offered and how much. Trust them to know when they are hungry and when they have eaten enough. Keep giving them healthy foods at regular meal and snack times. The actual amounts

they eat are up to them. Remember, it is not your job to make your children eat.

Picky eaters are children who often refuse foods or will constantly only eat the same foods. Parents worry these children are not getting enough nutrition to grow. But in most cases, they are. In fact, 50% of parents think their children are picky eaters. But 95% of healthy babies and toddlers meet all their nutritional needs. Relax and take the pressure off yourself and your child. Model good behaviour and your child will follow.

Children come in all sizes. Some are short and thin, others grow much faster and bigger. Babies and toddlers can be healthy at many different sizes. There is no one right or exact amount of food that children need to grow. What is important is they enjoy eating a variety of foods and they have the energy to play and interact with others.

Feeding Young Children



孩子的體型各有不同,有些矮瘦一點,有 些生長得較快和較大個子。 不同體型的嬰 兒和幼兒都是健康的,孩子成長需要多少 食物,並沒有一個正確或確實的標準。 重 要的是他們喜歡吃各種食物,並有足夠的 精力去玩耍及與別人交流。

陪孩子進餐是非常重要的,不要讓他們一 個人吃。 關掉電視和電腦,陪孩子說話。 電 視和電腦太吸引了,取代了吃飯和愉快交 談的時間。 進餐時和孩子說話,會讓孩子 感受到你喜歡並關心他們。 他們發現和探 索新食物和新的進食技巧,也同時發展語 言的能力。


只吃同一種食物的孩子。 父母擔心這些孩 子得不到足夠的營養健康成長,但在大 多數情況下,孩子的營養是足夠的。 事實 上,50%的家長認為自己的孩子挑食,但 95%的健康嬰兒和幼兒均已獲得其所需 要的營養。 所以請放鬆心情,減輕自己和 孩子的壓力,塑造良好的行為典範,讓孩 子向你學習。

如果你對餵養孩子有疑問,請於星期一至 五致電811請教營養師。

一起進餐是聯絡感情的時間,是支持你的 孩子全面發展的時間。 即使嬰兒不吃東 西,也可以坐在你身旁享受和家人一起進 餐的時光。 孩子9個月大時,建立有規律的 正餐和點心時間。 到1歲大時,應該養成一 日三餐,加上兩三次點心的習慣。

If you have concerns talk with your doctor or contact the public health nurse or community nutritionist at (604) 233-3150.

If you have a question about feeding your child, dial 811 Monday to Friday and ask to speak to a dietitian.

Temperament varies with 性格可以從非常激烈到非常溫和, development, time and expe而大部分孩子都是這兩者之間 riences. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CHILD?

Each temperament characteristic can range from very intense to very mild with most children falling somewhere in the middle.

p. 60 | Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 / 2018年兒童發展及資源指南

How active is your child?

Is your child a“sitter”who likes to explore with their hands and likes to sit and take in the world around him? Or, is your child a“mover and shaker” who prefers to wriggle in their chair, move until they drop and touch anything they can get their hands on.

How emotionally intense is your child?

Are they a“low reactor”who rarely fusses, is more subtle or mellow and tolerates lots of stimulation? Do they respond more mildly – fussing rather than crying or smiling rather than laughing? Or, are they a“high reactor”who responds dramatically and expresses their feelings with great intensity (for example, squealing with delight or showing anger by throwing things, hitting and shouting)? A situation for a“high reactor”is either horrible or great.


你的孩子是不是一個「靜坐者」 ,喜歡一直 坐著,並用手探索身邊的事物呢?或者,孩 子是不是一個「好動者」 ,喜歡在椅子上轉 來轉去,探索身邊的東西,直到那些東西 掉到地下為止。


孩子是不是一個「低調反應者」 ,對身邊的 大小事情不為所動,很少有反應呢?他們 是否總是溫和地面對身邊的事情並做出 反應 — 即使慌亂也不哭,即使笑了也不 出聲 呢?或者,孩子是一個「高調反應者」 ,對身邊的大小事情常常反應劇烈(例如: 用尖叫、亂扔東西、摔打、大吼大叫來宣洩 自己的喜怒哀樂) ,極端地表達自己的情 感的呢?面對某個情況時, 「高調反應者」 不是覺得很差,就是很好。

Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 61

How does your child adapt to change?

Do they like to“keep it the same”? Do they need set routines and thrive on order and predictability? Do they need lots of support to be comfortable in new situations? Do they tend to have more temper tantrums as they struggle to adapt to change? For example, a new pair of shoes, a new caregiver, or transitioning to a new activity – going from playtime to lunch may be difficult. Or, do they take things in stride? Are new friends, new foods, and new clothes interesting to them? Do they adapt well anywhere you take them? As a baby, did they nap in noisy restaurants? Do they enjoy looking around at new activities and can they amuse themselves easily? Do they go with the flow and find new routines exciting?

How persistent, frustrated or patient is your child?

Are they“easily frustrated”and do they give up quickly if something doesn’t go their way? Do they need your attention immediately, and need to feel success early on when trying a new skill? Or do they respond with crying, throwing things, or just walking away? Or, are they“persistent”, with an incredible ability to focus on a task and stick with it. Do they try things on their own, even when things are difficult? Are they patient and can they tolerate waiting for longer periods? Are they slower to“lose it”when they don’t get their way?

How sociable is your child?

Are they“slow to warm up”and need time to feel comfortable with new people? Do they prefer to be with their parents or primary caregivers? Are they happy and content to play on their own and often do not want to go to a new friend’ s house? Do they enjoy social situations and would not be labelled “shy” ? Do they need more time to get used to a social setting and sometimes need to leave earlier? Or, are they a “glad to meet you”child? Did they smile or look others in the eye even as a baby? Do they appear open and at ease with others and readily make and visit new friends? Do they seek out new situations and friends, but often have difficulty playing on their own?

Your Child’ s Personality



他們是不是喜歡「保持不變」呢?是否需要 固定的日常例行程序,並在有秩序及可預 見的情況下表現良好呢?當他們身處新的 環境時,是否需要大量的支援,才會感覺 舒服呢?在他們努力適應環境轉變時,是 否會較多發脾氣呢?例如,有一雙新鞋、新 的照顧者或過渡至新的活動 – 當他們在 玩耍時,可能很難叫他們去吃午餐。 或者, 他們是否從容面對改變呢?對新朋友、新 食物或新衣服,會否感到興趣呢?你帶他 們去其他地方,能否好好地適應呢?當孩 子還是嬰孩時,能否在嘈吵的餐廳裡睡著 呢?當進行新活動時,是否喜歡東張西望 呢?能否輕鬆地自娛自樂呢?是否容易適 應環境,樂於嘗試新的活動呢?

他們是否「慢熱」 ,需要時間才可從容地面 對陌生人呢?他們喜歡和父母一起,還是 和照顧者一起呢?是否樂於獨自玩耍,並 且大多不願意去新朋友的家玩呢?是否喜 歡參與社交場合,並且不會被認為是「害 羞」的呢?是否需要更多時間去融入社交 場合,甚至需要提早離開呢?或者,是否屬 於「很高興見到你」的那類孩子呢?是否笑 面迎人,即使仍是嬰孩時期,已會看著別 人的眼睛呢?是否看來對人開放、無拘無 束,並善於交上或探訪新的朋友呢?是否 主動尋找新的環境和朋友,但卻往往難以 自己獨自玩耍呢?

•Learn to accept and work with your child’s temperament rather than trying to change. This will make both your lives easier and more pleasant. If you understand your child’s temperament you anticipate what situations will be easy or more difficult for them. Take time to look at the world through your child’s eyes •Understand your own temperament. Your temperament is often different from your child’s temperament •Learn how your child’s temperament affects your parenting. For example, some children only need “a look”from a parent to stop an off-limits behaviour, while others will need more help from you to shift their behaviour from one thing to another. You will learn how to encourage your child’s strengths and help them work with their challenges


•學習去接納和適應孩子的性格,而不是 去改變它,將使你們的生活更加輕鬆愉 快。 如果你了解孩子的性格,便能夠預 料孩子在哪些情況下會感到輕鬆自在, 或在什麽情況下遇上困難。 請花點時 間,從你孩子的眼中去看這個世界。 •了解你自己的性格。 你的性格往往與你 孩子的性格並不相同。 •學習你孩子的性格如何影響你的育兒 方式。 例如,一些孩子只需要家長的一個 「眼神」 ,便即停止不應做的行為;但另 外有些孩子卻需要家長更多的支持,才 可改變他們的行為。 你將學習到如何鼓 勵孩子發揮自己的長處,幫助他們面對 和應付種種的挑戰。


•有些時候,我們需要援助以了解子女及 與他們相處。 如果你有任何問題或擔心 之處,請致電: •你的醫生 •公共衛生護士,電話:604-233-3150


Sometimes we need help to understand or relate to our child. If you have questions or concerns speak to: •Your doctor •A public health nurse at 604-2333150

Your Child’ s Personality


✓ TIP / 提示

Understand and respect your child’s temperament to foster a stronger parent-child relationship and make parenting easier and more fun for everyone.

理解和尊重孩子的性格,進而培養一種 穩固的親子關係,可使你的育兒工作更 加輕鬆和愉快。

Social & Emotional Development 健康社交和情緒發展 BUILDING BLOCKS FOR A GREAT RELATIONSHIP 建立良好親子關係的重要 Your relationship is the most important thing you can offer your child and will ensure that your child grows up to be healthy, happy and productive. So, let’s take some time to think through our parenting and play! Babies can identify you, their primary caregiver, at birth by sight, sound and smell. They can read your feelings by your facial expressions. They can mimic faces and feel what you feel. If they have had enough they know to turn away or close their eyes. By reaching to you or turning away, they send you a message about what they want - more communication or more quietness. A new parent needs to learn how their baby communicates.

Some babies have a harder time communicating. That can be frustrating

because you do not know what your baby wants. If you get too frustrated, ask for help.

一個健康良好的關係是最重要的事情,你 能給予孩子良好的關係,便能確保孩子健 康、快樂和積極進取地成長。 所以我們得 多花點時間,想想我們如何撫養孩子,如 何陪他們玩耍! 嬰兒從出生起,就能通過視覺、聲音和體 味,識別你作為他們主要的照顧者。 他們 可以從你的面部表情,閱讀你的感受,可 以模仿你的臉部感情和你的感覺。 如果他 們感覺夠了,他們會自動走開,或閉上他 們的眼睛。 通過親近你或離開你,嬰兒向你發送他們 想要什麽的訊息:想要更多的溝通,還是 更多的安寧。 初為父母者需要學習如何與 嬰兒溝通。

有些嬰兒在溝通方面會有困難,可能令你 感到沮喪,因為你不知道嬰兒想要什麼。 如果你感到沮喪不堪,請尋求援助。

Babies do not need us to be perfect, just good enough As you read your baby’s cues, over time, your baby learns you will be helpful and they will even stop crying when you enter the room! Your baby knows you can help! As you continue to understand your baby more, they become more attached to you, reaching out to you for help. Changes occur in you too as you feel close to your baby and more competent as a parent.

As you learn what your baby wants and provide it; as you guide your child safely, with respect; and as you help them with upset feelings, your child will also treat you with patience and respect. They will begin to control their feelings. They will look to you for reassurance.

Sometimes things do go wrong! This can happen in many ways, for example: •A child may have a difficult temperament, developmental delays or be sick •A parent can be ill, stressed or worried

孩子不需要我們完美無缺,只需要 我們夠好就行 •You may be preoccupied which can impact your ability to read your baby 當你在慢慢體會孩子的感覺,孩子也同時 在慢慢意識到你會願意幫助他們,甚至你 一走進入房間,他們便會停止哭泣!因為 孩子知道,你會幫助他們! 當你越來越了解你的孩子,他們也越來越 親近你,更願意得到你的幫助。 你也會經 歷一些改變,感到同孩子更為親近,更加 覺得自己是稱職的家長。

在你了解並給予孩子所需要的東西時,可 讓孩子感到與你一起是安全和受到尊重 的;當你在孩子感到不快時幫助他們,孩 子也會耐心地對待你和尊重你。 他們將會 開始控制自己的情緒,並向你尋求認同。 有些時候事情會出錯!這可能是很多方 面,例如:

•小孩可能脾氣很壞,發育遲緩或生病 •家長可能患病、太多壓力或擔心 •你可能因為太忙,影響了你理解孩子行 為的能力 Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 67


•Children need warm, sensitive caregiving routines in their lives as well as proper nutrition, shelter and lots of well directed praise •If tantrums and misbehavior persist, trained professionals can help. We all get angry at times and it is best to remove yourself! Spanking only teaches children that getting physical is okay to solve a problem and damages their self-esteem •People often ask:“What about the working parent? How can I build a good relationship with my child, when I’m away all day”? The quantity may not be there, but the quality can make up for this. Get down on the floor with your child for uninterrupted play time each day. Let them take the lead in play. Play is their way of communicating with you and makes them feel listened to, so they will also listen to you •We know warm, sensitive caregiving leads to strong attachment which leads to smart kids who follow home and society rules •As they get older, children need limits set gently but firmly. Sometimes children’s disappointments and tantrums can stop with distraction and humor. They can need a quiet time to calm down; in this way they learn to calm themselves, an important skill to have. Parents need to be consistent in their limits or a

child will persist. If you and another caregiver have different ideas, talk them out first or your child will be confused


•孩子需要溫暖而細心的照顧,有規律的 生活以及適當的營養、安全的家和許多 恰當的讚美 •如果孩子不停地發脾氣和行為不當,受 過專業訓練的人員可以幫助你。 我們 也有生氣的時候,但最好能自已克服, 而非打孩子來出氣,以免傳達一個可 以用暴力的錯誤訊息,更會損害孩子 的自尊心 •大家常常問: 「上班的家長該怎麼辦呢? 我整天不在家,如何與我的孩子建立良 好的關係呢? 」數量雖然達不到,但卻可 以質量來彌補。 每天同孩子在地板上專 心地玩一會兒,並讓他們在玩耍中作主 導。 玩耍是他們與你交流的方式,讓他 們感到你在傾聽,這樣他們也會仔細 聽你説話 •我們知道溫暖而細心的照顧,可建立強 而有力的聯繫,從而讓孩子更聰明,更 遵守家庭及社會的規範 •隨著孩子慢慢長大,需要溫柔但堅決地 對孩子實施某些限制措施。 有些時候, 你可以透過分散注意力或幽默等方法, 來停止孩子的失望情緒和脾氣,而他們 也可能需要一點時間冷靜下來,這樣一 來,孩子會學懂一項重要的技巧:如何 讓自己平靜下來。 家長所定下的限制必 須是始終如一的,否則孩子便會堅持 己見。 如果你與另一位照顧者的意見 不同,必須大家先商量好,以免讓孩子 感到混淆

•Make a play space for them to move and reach for toys •Play with your baby on the floor •Avoid having your baby spend too much time in cribs, carriers and swings when they are awake


Young children are always moving! They love to run, jump, twist, reach, slide, turn and wriggle – not always at the most convenient times! Toddlers need at least 30 minutes of activity per day. Preschoolers need at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Your child will enjoy moderate activities such as walking, swimming, playing outside, skating, and bike riding and more vigorous activities such as running, climbing, dancing, etc.

如何幫助你的嬰兒發展大肌肉運動 的能力:

•安排一處讓他們可以走動和自行拿玩 具的遊戲區 •在地上與你的嬰兒玩耍 •當嬰兒不是睡覺時,避免讓他們太長時 間留在嬰兒牀、嬰兒籃和搖搖椅內


小朋友是坐立不定的!他們愛跑來跑去、 跳高跳低、轉身、伸手拿東西、滑上滑落、 翻身和扭來扭去 – 而且總是在最不方便 的時候動個不停!幼兒每日需要至少30分 鐘的活動時間,學前兒童則每天需要至少 60分鐘的體力活動。 你的子女會愛玩不大 激烈的活動,例如步行、游泳、戶外遊戲、 溜冰、騎單車,也會喜歡較激烈的活動,例 如跑步、攀爬、跳舞等。

Children & Screen Time 兒童與面對屏幕時間 THE IMPACT OF SCREEN TIME 面對屏幕時間的影響 Television, movies, mobile devices and computers, also called screen time, may be a part of your child’s life. Studies show that too much screen time negatively impacts how children learn and behave. Research indicates that when children watch a lot of television they are more verbally and physically aggressive. They are also less creative and are not as strong at problem solving. Children learn best through real life experience: seeing, touching, hearing and smelling. They do not learn as well from screens because they can only hear and see them.

電視、電影、手提電子產品和電腦(這些稱 為面對屏幕時間)可能已成為你孩子生活 的一部分。 研究顯示,面對屏幕的時間太 長對孩子的學習和行為均有負面的影響。 調查發現,如果孩子看很多電視,他們在 語言及身體方面會較為侵略性,並會比較 缺乏創造力和解決問題的能力。 孩子從真實的生活體驗(看、摸、聽、嗅)學 習的效果是最好的,從屏幕學習的效果較 差,因為他們只能聽和看。


加拿大兒科協會(Canadian Pediatric Association)建議2歲以下兒童應避免有 面對屏幕的時間


•The Canadian Pediatric Association recommends that children under the age of 2 years should avoid exposure to screen time p. 80 | Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 / 2018年兒童發展及資源指南


•Do screen time together: Talk about what you see and hear on the screen and connect those ideas to your child’s everyday experiences •Screen time no more than 30 – 60 minutes a day


•More than 80% of child advertising focuses on toys, cereal, candy and fast food •Young children are unable to tell the difference between a program and a commercial •Children see over 40,000 commercials per year •Corporations spend about $15 billion each year on advertising targeting children •The most common technique used in children’ s advertising is emotional manipulation


•與子女一起面對屏幕:談談從屏幕上看 到和聽見的東西,並將它們和子女的日 常生活體驗結合起來 •面對屏幕的時間每天不超過30-60分鐘


•80%以上的兒童廣告集中宣傳玩具、穀 類食品、糖果及快餐 •幼兒並不知道節目與廣告之間的分別 •兒童每年觀看超過四萬個廣告 •公司每年花費約150億元推出以兒童 為宣傳對象的廣告 •兒童廣告中最常用的技倆是操控他們 的情緒


The best way for your child to learn and play is with you. 與你一起是你的子女學習和玩 耍之最佳途徑。

Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 81


•Choose shows or screen time that get children moving and provide fun through music and stories •Talk to your child about what they see on screens •Have specific times when screen time is not allowed on •Choose shows and screen time content carefully: Content should be slower-paced, at your child’s age level, with positive messages about everyday themes •Be aware of media products advertised to children •Screen time no more than 1 – 2 hours a day

WHAT YOU CAN DO AS A PARENT: •Set a good example by spending your free time with your family reading, exercising, playing sports or listening to music •Parents and caregivers sometimes need a break. It’s okay for your child to have quiet time in a screen free place


•選擇適當的節目或面對屏幕的時間, 讓孩子通過音樂和故事得到更多的運 動和樂趣 •跟孩子談談他們從屏幕上看到什麽 東西 •定下在某段時間内不准面對屏幕 •小心選擇節目及面對屏幕的内容:内容 必須是節奏較慢的、適合你孩子的年齡 水平,並對日常的事物傳送正面的訊息 •小心那些以兒童為宣傳對象的媒介 產品 •面對屏幕的時間每天不超過1 -2小時


•為孩子樹立好榜樣,利用空閒時間與 家人一起閱讀、做運動、參加體育活動 或聽音樂 •家長和照顧者有時也需要休息,在沒有 屏幕的地方讓你的子女靜靜地待一會 兒是可以的

Child Development & Resource Guide 2018 | p. 89


Children at this age are becoming more independent and learning how to be responsible. Most children can:

•Dress by themselves, but may need help with zippers •Use the washroom by themselves and wash their hands using soap and warm water •Brush or comb their hair •Put their toys away •Help with family chores such as setting the table or making the bed •Help get their snack and lunch ready •Hang up their coat and backpack by themselves


When your child begins Kindergarten, everyone in the family can help make sure the transition from home to school goes smoothly. These suggested tips are to help you and your child develop routines and healthy habits.

•Establish a regular bedtime routine that includes lots of cuddles and story time. Children need 8 to 10 hours of sleep •Have a snack, lunch and the next day’s clothes ready the night before •Talk about your child’s day at school during family meals •Teach your child to obey safety rules for car travel (use booster seat), sports (wear helmet) and walking (obey road signs and use crosswalks)


這個年齡的兒童愈來愈獨立,並學習如何 承擔責任。 大部分的小孩子可以﹕ •自己穿衣,但可能需要別人幫忙弄拉鏈 •自己去洗手間,懂得用肥皂和暖水來 洗手 •自己梳理頭髮 •擺放好自己的玩具 •幫助做家務,例如擺放碗筷開飯或整 理床鋪 •幫手準備好自己的點心和午餐 •掛好自己的外套和背囊


當你的子女開始上幼稚園,每一位家人均 可幫助他們順利地從家庭過渡到學校。 下 列這些提示,有助你和你的子女建立日常 生活規律,培養良好習慣。 •設定一個慣常的上牀睡覺程序表,包括 很多擁抱和說故事的時間。 小孩子需要 睡八至十小時 •早一晚準備好明天需要的點心、午餐 和衣服 •全家人一起吃飯時和子女談談他們在 學校的情況 •教導子女遵守各項安全規例,包括坐車 外出時必須使用兒童加高安全椅、做運 動時必須配戴頭盔、步行時必須遵守道 路標誌及使用行人過路處
