Parents of course want to have children who excel in school. This desire should be supported with housing conditions are calm, because studies have shown that children who grew up in a noisy house will be much slower to think in school.
Ofsted research report found that children who grew up with a noisy house conditions, such as the television voice that burns continuously or other noises, delayed learning ability in school, especially language skills.
“Low linguistic ability of children at school not only because of the lack of conversation at home, but also due to the noise that occurs continuously, such as television or sound from the sound of people screaming,” said Christine Gilbert, chief inspector of Ofsted, as reported by the Independent, Monday (15/11/2010).
Ofsted research was initially conducted on pre-school age children, 3 and 4 years old who have attended class playground (play group).
“Parents who are either conditioned home and let the kids glued to the television without any communication quality, finally can inhibit brain development and achievement of children,” explains Christine.
According to Christine, most children with the condition of a noisy house was not ready to learn also experienced delays in communication skills. This further exacerbated if there is no good communication between parents and children at home.
“The challenge of this report is to encourage policy makers and teachers to focus on language development, and subordinated the broader learning such as social skills, interpersonal and physical basis equally important,” said resonance Ellis, head of education policy at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, England.
According to him, learning to read and communicate involves more than just sounds and letters, but also involves a book, respond to imaginative stories and learn how to use text-based information.
“I think what happened because it’s easier to put the kids in front of the television. This is not a quality enough time and should tell parents can spend time before bed. Children with a family whose parents are educated most do not have this problem. I think it because her parents make time to communicate with them, and not on television, “explained Ellis.
