How to be a father and mother storytelling
Everyone, absolutely all parents ever touch them, or many times !, become storytellers. Is there a secret formula for being a good storyteller? These are the basic tricks you must follow to be a good storyteller for children.
1. Choose what we are going to read very well.The fundamental ingredient is what will be read to the child, the book, the story of your magazine ... It should be chosen according to the child's tastes. The best thing is that he chooses, although always ask for the same (something found in that story that comforts him, although he can not explain it or explain it to us). If the child does not opt for one or gold type of stories, it is best to offer a good variety so that you can outline your tastes. In this case, a subscription to a good children's magazine can be a success: the magazine comes every month home, in his name, something that makes him very excited) and offers a wide range of possibilities every month in the same issue and, of course, from one month to the next. It is also advisable that you go regularly to the school or neighborhood library or to the bookshop and browse to your liking and be advised.
2. Interpretation is the key to success. The text, as in any play, is the basis, but the interpretation can be the key to the success or failure of the work. When the father or mother read or tell a story, you have to put the voice, the modulations, the changes of tone, you have to put gestures, hands, legs, feet ... you have to put the heart! Before his son or daughter, the father or mother become magicians able to fascinate them. It is already a lot for them that dad or mom dedicates that time exclusively to them. But, in addition, he loves that, for a few minutes, they lose their role as responsible and sensible father and mother and become a comedic or dramatic actor. If you put the effort, success is assured.
3. Find the right moment.It is not always the one that suits Mom or Dad. Sometimes the child is tired or nervous, and needs to relax in another way, playing and running in the park.
There will be a time when he asks us to tell him the usual story again! or a new one. The end of the day, just before sleep, is a magical moment: the child is getting ready to sleep, we can lower the light level a little and enjoy it as much as he does with our interpretation.
