“I NEED TO LISTEN WELL SO THAT I CAN HEAR, WHAT IS NOT SAID”- Thudi Madonsela

Little Leaders: Fostering Kid's Growth Holistically
How to teach kid's about Good Touch Bad Touch
Considering various disheartening events which have occurred across the country over past few days, children’s security and safety is a major concern for everyone. For our kids, the world is full of new technologies, learning, opportunities, fun and so much more but it also encompasses a few dangers in itself. Thus, it’s a high time to make our kids aware of these dangers they are surrounded with, not to make them scare or frightened but to make them capable of dealing, in case if encountered, and to boost their self-confidence in process of doing so.
Importance of making eye-contact while communicating with kid's
“… our kids don’t listen to us…”, this is a phrase which I have heard a number of times and a problem which every other parent feels to be connected with. And as a reply to this phrase, my question is “Do we listen to our kids?”.
Listening and obeying is what we expect from our kids. But before expecting anything from them, we should be ready to deliver. Deliver what is expected from us. Most of the time when kids say something to us, we tend to ignore them as either we are busy or whatever they are saying must be irrelevant. But believe me, whatever your kids are saying is of utmost importance to them.
How to imbibe patriotism in kid's
Recently, Supreme Court of India has made it compulsory for all the theatres to play National Anthem and all present in the hall are obliged to stand up to show respect and solidarity. Yesterday, when I went to watch a movie, a four year old kid besides me was asking his mother, “Mummy, why do you always make me stand on the National Anthem?” A small and innocent question from that kid made me think about the necessity of imbibing patriotism and “the pride of being Indian” in the kids.
Although, schools take a lot of required measures to imbibe patriotism in kids from a very young age by organizing different fun-filled activities, competitions, plays etc., and at little leaders, we instil that patriotism which is why we are the best play school in Ghaziabad. Yet as they say that home is the first school of kids and parents are the first teachers, it is important to take a few steps at home as well.
Challenges faced when kid's start learning to write
Being a mother is the greatest gift of God. But this gift comes with its own set of challenges. The challenge of understanding the child, challenge of caring the kid, challenge of handling the tantrums, challenge of holding the anger, challenge of facing their first day to school, challenge of making them understand that books are not made for tearing and challenge of making them learn to write. There is a never ending list which goes on and on and on.
