How to inculcate the habit of self study in childrenHow to inculcate the habit of self study in children!
Many of you want to know how my boys study on their own. So here is a bit though not everything in detail.

1. I had to make up my mind to let go. Since I am a control freak I love to be aware of everything they did. I had to tell myself to let go. Letting go early is v important for their development.
So you need to let go the need to hover in your child’s head all the time.

.
2. My mom was v happy when she saw my sons studying, eating, playing and fighting on their own. She said a v important thing. “When you were all young, I had no time nor did I know what to teach you all. So I would sit with you all. But that worked well with you as you learnt to study on your own. I see parents who sit and teach 2 to 3 hours daily but the kids are not at all serious.”

.
So the message is to let your kids study on their own. They will make mistakes and they will falter. It’s ok. Let them do these mistakes when young. The stakes are low. The loss is small. So what they get less marks in class 2 or 5 or 7! Let them realize what is failure early on. They will understand how to do self study. And trust me, in this age of internet, the only reason I am sending my kids to school is because I want them to mingle around with 20 other kids and teachers. Socialize with them . Of course I need peace too.

.

3. I do not ever ask them what marks they have got. All I ask before assessment is a quick answer to my questions on how will you use this concept in real life. If they know great. Else I give them a bit of Gyan that is enough.

After they come back from tests I don’t ask how much will they get. I ask them this ” So were the questions easy or tough?” If they say it was easy, I know they have understood everything v clearly. If they say it was tough, I know I need to explain it to them as they still have not understood the usage of what ever they learnt and hence it seemed tough to them. It also tells me that I did not explain to them good enough for their smarty heads. So I have to simplify the explanations.

Think happy thoughts.

Try to see the world through the eyes of a child . Eyes that are not yet cynical or skeptical. Eyes that marvel at everything they see. The lessons we learn from children about life are so much important than the lessons we teach them. Think happy thoughts.

The best gift for your children on “Children’s Day “

Children,Inspirational Quotes, Motivational Thoughts and Pictures

Connect with your children by disconnecting from distraction .
Children  need the attention of their parents, but technology is a constant distraction!
.
The lure of gadgets like iphones, ipads, blackberries etc along with the rising use of  internet, addiction to social media (facebook, twitter etc.) & humongous information flow  is gradually creating a distance in relationships.
.
Now, Many no longer like to wish or talk in person on special occasions. They are happy to wish via sms or a 140 character tweet. Parents are finding increasingly difficult to spend time with children.
.
Earlier – in the pre social media days, the spare time was used to spend time with children – teach them in their studies, play with them or just listen to the happenings in their world. However now a days all that time is being eaten up by swanky gadgets. There is no more time time left for children. Parents are happy to splurge on gadgets for their children.
.
Spending time with children DOES NOT only mean taking them out for a movie or eating out in a fast food restaurant of their choice. Of course this is time spent with them, BUT definitely not quality time.
.
Remember, Children need your time and attention more than anything else. They are growing up. Spend time teaching them, listening to their stories and gossips. Try answering their innumerable simple questions  (like What should I become when I grow up?)~  the answers to which are definitely not easy.
.
Do not miss out on the precious moments, priceless life experiences of the time spent with your child. Create beautiful life experiences . You will make a world of difference in their lives. They need your time and attention more than anything else. Give it to them.Otherwise it will be too late when they are grown up become BUSY like you…By: Kapil Jain

Children value most your time, Quotes, Pictures, Good Parenting Tips

What do children value most from parents?

Very Valuable Answer By A Little Girl:

A teacher asked a little girl: What does your DAD do?

Girl replied: He works in a chocolate factory and brings lots of chocolate for me..

In the evening he works in an ice-cream parlor and I eat my favorite flavor…

He also works in a toys shop and brings me soft and cuddly teddy sometime.

He is also a teacher because he helps me daily in my homework.

He is very strong & hard worker. He lifts me on his shoulders. He becomes a horse for me and gives me a good ride around the house.

He is my favorite clown as me makes me laugh a lot. He is a story teller who tells me wonderful stories at night.

He works from morning to evening and never get tired.

And

When he is back to home, he is always ready to play with me.

Note:
As parents, Kids don’t value what we do to earn the money.
They give value to what we do to earn their love…

Let’s Give them what they value most… Our time….
