IS THIS REALLY THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR MY CHILD?

As a child, I always had a fascination in my academics and learning. I used to be a nerd and a competitor for honors. While others would go to computer shops and play online games, I would always stay at my study table, opening notes, reading lessons, answering assignments, and doing research projects. Bullies would occasionally go up to me and try to wane my spirit down, but I did not mind them for I was straightforward on my goal to be consistent in my schooling. Then there came a problem that I constantly had, which is being transferred from school to school. At first, I did not understand why this was happening. I had good grades, I made some friends, and I never had any sanctions and violations at my school. Also, my family had enough money for me to be kept on school. It was then all clear when my financial benefactor told me that she was not sure in which school to keep as she was hesitant on the quality of educations that my previous had. For a lot of people, they face a similar problem. Their […]

A GUIDE FOR CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS

Childhood educators are considered to be the sculptures to a child’s growth. They are the known influencers of a child’s improvement and development in his/her values and intellect beside their parents. These people are very much valued by parents because they are co-workers in terms of educating their child in many fields. Often times, the roles of these workers are to fill in the gaps at which the parents lack or fail to provide. There are many childhood educators, but this article would focus on the preschool teachers. Educators in the field of academia most likely set as formal tools to advocate a child towards professionalism. While preschool teachers may not teach things like finding jobs, voting for the next president, or advanced mathematics, they instill lessons to children about the basics. Some may disregards the full potential of these people, but one should remember that a skyscraper cannot stand without a framework. Even though those preschool teachers have passed examinations on becoming licensed in their job, and have even graduated in master’s degree, many still end up shaking in front of their pupils.

GOOD PARENTING GOES A LONG WAY

“A soon took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner. Father being very old and weak, while eating then dropped food on his shirt and trousers. Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm. After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.”, Abhi, India (N/A). Like the story shown above, it is the goal of every parent to raise their child to be a great human being. Parents try the best they can to give everything for their children so that they may grow with greatness and values. It is the most satisfying experience when a child would later be the one to take care of his/her parents when they have grown old. In the modern society that we live in today, parenting has gone quite unconventional. Parents often times are forgetting the old styles and resorting to what is trending and new. Sometimes, what is trending is not always the best thing there is because often times […]

WHAT SHOULD YOUR FIVE YEAR OLD CHILD BE REALLY DOING?

Children at their fifth year of living are bound for innocence and learning. It is the year where children start to initialize activities that would later become as steps into becoming great people in time’s consent. The purity and innocence of their age make this a perfect time for them to really engage into productivity and early success. What this simply means is that youngsters are starting to gain consciousness into the world around them and the actions that they make. What they learn at this stage would very much become an experience for them to keep and use in the future. On the same track, parents also start to have greater access to establish a relationship with their children and really become their first teachers or educators. This is a time where parents are usually confused, perplexed, and often time clueless on what to do with their children in terms of activities. It has been a world norm that parents should become a set of great influencers to their children because at the end of the day, the youth are the future. One wrong move could not only be […]
