Siapa tak pernah tengok gelagat Fatimah dan Ali, kanak-kanak yang popular di Instagram? Dua beradik yang petah bercakap dan bijak ini kini menetap bersama keluarganya di Birmingham, United Kingdom (UK). Gelagat dua beradik ini bersama seorang abangnya Omar menerusi akaun Instagram yang dikendalikan ibu bapa mereka, @thefamily.uk menjadi hiburan yang menceriakan para pengikutnya.

Siapa yang menjadi pengikut setia instagram keluarga ini pasti tertunggu-tunggu video terbaru gelagat Fatimah dan Ali yang lucu dan menceriakan. Mesti ramai yang tertanya-tanya bagaimana agaknya ibu bapa kanak-kanak ini mendidik anak sehingga petah bercakap, bijak dan confident.

Ia turut diakui oleh ibunya Nor Ashila Mahamed Ismail yang lebih dikenali sebagai Mrs Mom dalam akaun instagram ini. Katanya memang ramai ibu bapa di luar sana yang meminta mereka berkongsi tip bagaimana melatih anak-anak untuk petah bercakap di awal usia.

Ali mula bercakap pada usia 9 bulan, sama seperti Fatimah. Tetapi, dia mula meniru beberapa perkataan kami tuturkan semasa usianya baru 6 bulan. Teka apa perkataan pertama Ali? ‘MAH’ (Fatimah)!

Ali started talking at the age of 9 months, like Fatimah. But, he already began copying some of our words when he was only 6 months old. Guess what Ali’s very first word was? ‘MAH’ (Fatimah)! He was the earliest among our 3 children to start talking. Unlike Fatimah, his style is more to what we call ‘The Master Immitator’. He mimics almost everything from his No. 1 Idol, Fatimah! However, he is known for his randomness. He will store things he’s observed that he finds catchy in his memory bank, then waits for the right moment & shoots his bullets, which normally makes people laugh! This is the biggest difference between Ali & Fatimah, because Fatimah will only speak her own mind! It’s impossible to put words into her mouth. This is why we say she’s ‘BORN TO TALK’! . We’ve received lots of requests from other parents out there to share our tips on how we train our children to speak from an early stage. Here’s some pieces of our experience… . Rule No. 1 – AVOID BABY TALK. We always talk to our children in an adult manner, even though baby talk sounds cute & tempting. We started talking to them throughout the pregnancy stages. When they were born, they recognised our voices right away as we had been communicating with them daily. We also used different intonations to attract their attention. . Rule No. 2 –  KEEP CALM & CARRY ON TALKING. Some children might take longer than others to start talking. Don’t give up! Keep calm & carry on talking to your children every day – talk, talk, talk & never stop talking! Never push your child to talk. This will only make them refuse more. Some ‘superstars’ prefer to take their own sweet time to let their voice be heard! . Rule No. 3 – LISTEN. When our children start talking, give them your attention. Engage with them – avoid 1 way communication. Let them know that you are very interested in what they have to say. . “Every child has a different learning style & pace. Each child is gifted…they just unwrap their packages at different times!” . #wisemomsays 💋 Written by Mrs Mom – a mother of 3 amazing kids! I’m not a parenting expert.

Dia adalah anak yang terawal daripada 3 orang anak kami yang pandai bercakap. Tak seperti Fatimah, caranya lebih kepada apa yang kami gelarkan ‘The Master Immitator’. Dia tiru hampir semuanya daripada Idola No. 1 nya, Fatimah! Bagaimanapun dia hanya tahu secara random. Dia akan mengingat banyak perkara yang diperhatikan yang dia rasa catchy dalam bank memorinya, kemudian tunggu pada saat yang betul & mula melontarkan pelurunya, yang mana selalunya akan buat orang ketawa! Ini antara perbezaan besar di antara Ali & Fatimah, kerana Fatimah hanya akan bercakap apa yang difikirkan! Sangat mustahil untuk menyuruhnya ikut cakap kita. Itulah sebabnya kami gelarkan dia ‘BORN TO TALK’!

Kami menerima banyak permintaan daripada ibu bapa di luar sana untuk berkongsi tip kami tentang bagaimana kami melatih anak-anak untuk bercakap di awal usia. Berikut adalah pengalaman kami…

Peraturan No. 1 – ELAKKAN BABY TALK. Kami selalu bercakap dengan anak-anak mengikut cara orang dewasa, walaupun bayi bercakap nada cute dan memikat. Kami mula bercakap dengan mereka sepanjang peringkat kehamilan lagi. Bila anak lahir, mereka kenal suara kami serta merta kerana kami sudah berkomunikasi dengan mereka setiap hari. Kami juga menggunakan intonasi berbeza untuk menarik perhatian mereka.

Peraturan No. 2 – BERTENANG & TERUSKAN BERCAKAP. Sesetengah kanak-kanak mungkin mengambil masa berbanding kanak-kanak lain untuk mula bercakap. Jangan putus asa! Bertenang dan teruskan bercakap dengan anak anda setiap hari – cakap, cakap, cakap & jangan berhenti bercakap! Jangan paksa anak untuk bercakap. Ini akan hanya membuatkan mereka terus menolak untuk bercakap. Sesetengah ‘superstars’ lebih gemar mengambil masa sendiri untuk mengeluarkan suara!

Peraturan No. 3 – DENGAR. Bila anak anda mula bercakap, berikan perhatian. Libatkan diri dengan mereka – elakan komunikasi 1 hala. Biarkan mereka tahu yang anda sangat berminat dengan apa sahaja yang mereka cakapkan.

“Setiap anak mempunyai cara pembelajaran dan kadar yang berbeza. Setiap anak adalah istimewa…mereka hanya akan menyerlahkan keistimewaan mereka pada masa yang berbeza!”

Fatimah Cipta Trending Lagi Dengan Perkataan ‘gapoever’

Terbaru, satu video yang dimuat naik ke akaun Instagram itu memaparkan keletah Ali yang melakukan role play sebagai doktor, cuba merawat masalah alergi yang dihadapi kakaknya, Fatimah.

Fatimah and Ali both love imaginative play. One of their favourites is playing doctor! They have hours of fun checking and treating each other! . Imaginative play is very important for children’s development. For a start, it helps build social skills. Another benefit of imaginative playing is that it increases creativity. They can make up the story of their own make believe adventure – there are no limits! Also, imaginative playing allows kids to have a taste of the ‘grown-ups’ world. They learn more about real-life situations through play! . As parents, we should avoid pushing our ideas into their play. Just let their imagination run wild and free! Don’t worry if it doesn’t make any sense to you. Remember, it’s imaginative play! When you interrupt to correct them, you’ll stop their creativity as they might feel afraid that they will make mistakes. If they are stuck for ideas, support them by asking questions to stimulate their creativity. Maybe you might want to kick off the story and let them take it from there. . We always love to get involved in our children’s play because we get to treasure the precious moments that become the memories of their childhood and it’s also part of our bonding time. The kids absolutely love it when we get involved in their play, and as a result, they will respond better when we ask them to get involved in other things around the house – it’s like give and take! . So overall, imaginative play is a bit of bonding time and getting to know your child’s personality. Whatever the situation, it will surely enhance your child’s learning and let everybody have fun at the same time. Why not try it with your child today? . “Children take their play business seriously – play along!” . #wisemomsays 💋 Written by Mrs Mom – a mother of 3 amazing kids! I’m not a parenting expert. I’m just a mother, sharing through experience…coz sharing is caring! #thefamilydotuk © . p/s: #gapoever = whatever 😂

Apa yang mengelikan hati ramai pengikutnya bukan sahaja aksi comel kedua-duanya tetapi juga penggunakaan perkataan ‘gapoever’ yang digunakan Fatimah.

‘Gapoever’ merupakan gabungan dua perkataan, ‘gapo’ yang bermaksud apa dalam dialek Kelantan, serta perkataan bahasa Inggeris ever, dan gabungan ini merujuk kepada ekspresi whatever dalam bahasa Inggeris yang bermaksud ‘apa sajalah’.

Perkataan itu tiba-tiba sahaja menjadi trending di laman sosial, dan ramai yang tidak dapat menahan rasa lucu tetapi dalam masa yang sama kagum dengan kebijaksanaan dan kreativiti Fatimah.
