Kids Family Education

Firstly, don’t worry about children’s littering. I am sure most parents in daily life would have such experience that when you get to home from work place, you will find your kids throw all the toys you or your relative have bought for them as the holiday gift away every corner of the house. What’s worse, some naughty children would paint the wall with too much colors and it seems that they are satisfied with their masterwork. As parents, what should you do? Generally speaking, parents are angry with such behaviour what their children did, but at the same time they would put all the items scattered in the house away and clean the room as fast as they can, then they should tell the kids that not to do such things the next time. However, just a few days later, parents would find such situation happened again and also feel helpless. Suggestion from the children development experts is that before six o’clock, parent should not put their toys away and after six o’clock, parent should ask children that why these toys are thrown everywhere and how to clean up these messy toys. At the beginning, parents can clean them away with children together, and gradually children would clean them up on their own initiative without parents’ reminding.

Some parents also complain that they are so busy on work that they have less opportunity to communicate with their children. How to solve such situation? In fact, the effective communication is not dependent on the long or short time, but the sense of responsibility you give to children at every details. Remember that give a sincere hug to children before going to bed everyday, and say a complimentary word, I am sure you would find the obvious changes on your children after one year.

At the same, the first thing you do after the work should not be to do the housework, on the contrary, you can immediately hug your children and give them the warm feeling. For a while, you will find that your children become more independent and would not cry when you leave home for work.

How do You Ensure that Your Child is Safe at the Care Centre?

1. Picking A Care Centre

When you come to the conclusion that you need child care, you should start looking for one immediately. Try to plan ahead to ensure that you are not pressurized and end up picking the wrong one. Do a thorough research on the centres you have in mind. Visit them if possible to see how activities are carried out and how children are handled. Ensure that you observe the safety measures that have been put in place. You will be able to know whether a care centre is safe by observing such safety measures.

2. Sanitary Measures

Germs are present everywhere, especially where children meet. Child care centres are places where children can get a lot of infections and illnesses because of the germs present. Hence, parents should start teaching their children about good hygiene practices from an early age. Bathe them every day after arriving home from the centre. Teach them how to wash their hands and when to wash them. Teach them to cover up when coughing.

Look around the centre to see if a hand sanitizer is provided at the changing stations and at the dining area. If none is provided, recommend the idea to the centre manager.

3. Security Measures

Children are very curious and like trying out new things. They will always wander away no matter how keen you are to watch them. They can be quite mischievous. A good centre always has this in mind, especially if the ratio of adult to child is low.

A good centre will have a fenced play area outdoors. This helps reduce chances of children wandering off and getting lost or getting into accidents. The type of fence used should also be strong and shouldn’t allow children to squeeze their bodies through to the other side.

4. Pick Up Policy

Ensure that the centre doesn’t allow strangers to visit or pick children without the parents’ permission. Provide a list, giving the names and contacts of people who can pick your child. Keep a copy of the same list to avoid confusion in case something happens. Ask the care provider to request for ID’s of people who come to pick up your child. This will give you peace of mind as a parent.

Children are very precious to their parents; hence, parents would go an extra mile to ensure that they are safe at all times. These tips will help you and your care provider ensure that your child and other children at the centre are safe. It’s certainly always better to be safe than sorry.

 

Character Education Phase

Self Discipline

Often said the backbone of Character Education. Teachers and parents in tandem should make sure to teach students/ kids to be self disciplined.

To be compassionate

Being compassionate is always a plus point when it comes to making your kid understand the suffering or pain that a person undergoes. When it comes to helping someone in need, ask them not to back off no matter what comes.

Responsibility

Being responsible is a task itself. Teach your kids or students to accomplish a task within a timeframe and cite examples if needed.

Be Friendly

Being friendly is the one of the greatest virtues. Hence, you should make sure your kid turns out to be a good friend.

Perseverant

Being perseverant will surely reap anyone benefits to success. Character education teaches your kid not to back off even while facing a daunting task by maintaining a positive attitude and by giving their very best.

Put in your best

Success cannot be achieved overnight and this is a universal truth. Each and everyone needs to put in their best efforts to achieve the desired. Therefore, make sure that your kids are aware of this fact as well.

Basic Values

To be honest and loyal is one of the basic values in Character education, not only to his own self as well as to others.

Faith: Faith is believing in you and in almighty. Believe that he is there to take care of everyone’s need.

Ignore and Avoid

Some of the negative traits that kids should avoid are violence and profanity. Teach them to do so.

Say ‘NO’

You have to make sure that your children always maintain a safe distance from alcohol, tobacco, drugs, any illegal substances or abusive language.

The above mentioned are only a couple of values and virtues that you need to instill in your kids. But, these are basic virtues and values that need to be taught in order to move to the next phase of character education.

Academic instruction isn’t the only responsibility teachers have in today’s classrooms. More and more, teachers are being called on to teach students about values … things like making good decisions, the showing of respect, taking responsibility, choosing friends, and having a positive attitude. It’s a responsibility that could be overwhelming, considering the limited hours available in a school day, the number of kids in the classroom, and the diversity of backgrounds and personalities each child represents.

Music Effect on Early Education

From a scientific point of view a lot of the theories can be backed up. It makes sense that there are a lot of skills involved in learning to play an instrument. It requires the understanding of long sections of music, a complex symbolic notation system, and bimanual control of the instrument. It’s irrefutable that learning these requires good memory, motor functions and the ability to understand rhythm, timing and a system much like a foreign language. At a young age children’s brains are like sponges and to add learning such skills early on could only benefit a child.

Slightly more theoretically based is the belief that hearing complex musical pieces can actually improve a child’s intelligence. There have been numerous researches done into this area with interesting results. One such research project resulted in the buzz word ‘Mozart Effect’. It is a widely heard theory that listening to Mozart can make a child smarter. Mozart is regularly used as the prime example because of the complexity of his pieces.

While there is no concrete evidence to support this, there are an abundance of theories about how it may help brain development. Listening to complex, multi instrumental pieces is likely to effect the child’s understanding of rhythm and could assist in developing more attentive listening. This in turn could likely improve a child’s focus and attention span making it easier for them to absorb information in later life.

Whether there is any real merit to these techniques, it is apparent that giving children an artistic output is beneficial to them. There are a variety of educational companies who strive to provide educational tools for children such as easels for art and various musical instruments which suggest there is strong support for artistic development in early learning. However, if you do decide to get your child a particularly loud instrument, investing in room dividers might be a good idea.

As all parents want the best for their children, these methods will remain popular as they are certainly of some benefit at least.
