Wat kinderen leren van familieverhalen – Elaine Reese – The Atlantic

Verhalen vertellen over hoe het was toen wij de leeftijd van onze (klein) kinderen hadden, beseffen we hoe belangrijk dat is? Voorlezen, daarvan kennen we de voordelen: grotere taalvaardigheid, grotere kennis van de wereld, leeshonger stimuleren. Maar familieverhalen vertellen? Professor Elaine Reese zegt daarover het volgende:

Over the last 25 years, a small canon of research on family storytelling shows that when parents share more family stories with their children—especially when they tell those stories in a detailed and responsive way—their children benefit in a host of ways. For instance, experimental studies show that when parents learn to reminisce about everyday events with their preschool children in more detailed ways, their children tell richer, more complete narratives to other adults one to two years later compared to children whose parents didn’t learn the new reminiscing techniques. Children of the parents who learned new ways to reminisce also demonstrate better understanding of other people’s thoughts and emotions. These advanced narrative and emotional skills serve children well in the school years when reading complex material and learning to get along with others. In the preteen years, children whose families collaboratively discuss everyday events and family history more often have higher self-esteem and stronger self-concepts. And adolescents with a stronger knowledge of family history have more robust identities, better coping skills, and lower rates of depression and anxiety. Family storytelling can help a child grow into a teen who feels connected to the important people in her life.  […]

When you’re putting up the tree or having your holiday meal, share a story with your children about past holidays. Leave in the funny bits, the sad bits, the gory and smelly bits–kids can tell when a story has been sanitized for their protection. Then invite everyone else to tell a story too. Don’t forget the youngest and the oldest storytellers in the group. Their stories may not be as coherent, but they can be the truest, and the most revealing (vetjes red.) [bron: What Kids Learn From Hearing Family Stories – Elaine Reese – The Atlantic.]
