Punctuality is the care and diligence in arriving at a place or departing from it at the agreed time or doing things in due time. Adults are aware of the time of day we live in, and the clock is an important part of the day to day to organize our time. However, teaching the value of punctuality to children requires their science, since the notion of time for children is different and in addition, they still do not understand the operation of the hands of the clock.

Tips for getting kids on time

There are some ideas that can help parents and educators to get children on time and do their homework in a timely manner. It is necessary that the child begin to appreciate the importance of doing a certain thing in a certain time. For this, it is important to dialogue with the child and make him understand, for example, that if we do not get to the cinema at the agreed time, the movie will have begun and we will not be able to see it.

The routine is not only good because it helps the child feel safe. In addition, it helps to create habits for children. Despite not knowing how to measure time, it will guide them to know that after getting out of bed they have to wash, then get dressed, have breakfast and go to school. Little by little, they will learn that this series of small actions have to be carried out in a certain time to reach the school before they close.

Children have to know what kind of feelings triggers someone unpunctual. An important value is to teach children not to do to others what they would not like to themselves. Therefore, they have to understand how someone feels when they wait for a person who does not arrive.  Children should be taught that distractions would lead them to be unpunctual. Doing a task requires concentration, especially in childhood, where abstraction is greater. The child will not be able to dress well and with agility, if the television is on and are emitting their favorite drawings.

People learn from experience, so even parents have a constant dialogue with children to educate them in values sometimes they have to learn from their own mistakes. Experience themselves what happens if they are unpunctual. Punctuality is taught to children by example.  If parents are late to sites, children will not value the importance of arriving at a place at the agreed time.

Children must know that unpunctual people are losing the credibility and respect of others. If the child does not arrive in time to play his soccer game day after day. They may stop counting on him for upcoming matches. Unpunctuality can make people lose great opportunities. Getting the child to understand what he can miss if he is systematically late to the sites will help him understand the importance of this value.

The child has to learn that some unforeseen things can make someone not arrive on time or that the task is not done in the given time. To avoid these unforeseen it is advisable to give a little more time to each task and not go in a hurry and at the last minute.
