Confused?

Many adults and parents fail to understand child psychology and begin to judge their children based on an adults thought process. Children have simple minds that process each experience as something to learn.

A child is not a confused soul. If your child is indecisive it is not confusion. Not being able to decide between a number of options is because they want them all or they really do not like any. This is not confusion.

Adults on the other hand are confused. Why is this? Because for when they consider their options they are trying to figure out the consequences of their choice. The inability clearly to perceive the repercussion of each option leads them to a state of confusion. A child’s thought process does not go so far, they see what is at hand and make their decision accordingly.

Childhood is one continuous learning phase. For a child learning is not confined to the institution of school. Children learn every moment of the day, everything they see or do has some significance to them. They do not categorize situations as good or bad, they have an interest in what is going on.Quote-OurStaff.gif

Travelling has a major impact on a young developing mind. The impressions of what they see and experience holds great value in their life. It is beneficial to encourage a child to travel whether on family holidays or on school trips.

Build a fierce desire to learn

via Daily Prompt: Fierce

Many children around the world are disadvantaged and are unable to enjoy the thrill of learning. Real learning comes not from school and text books, but from experiencing life. They are too young you may say. Yes and as parents we try and shelter and protect them from the harsh realities. That’s okay they can do without being exposed to the negative side of life.

But what about the good things in life? Do we protect them from that too?  Life is fast paced and we are busy, we hardly have a moment to sit and rest let alone spend time enjoy nature. This is where we go wrong. We have to indulge our children to see and learn. We have to take them out and show them the world. Just by seeing, and the experience of being there they learn a lot of things. Most of which we wouldn’t be able to teach them even if we tried.

Don’t limit your childimages (8)

There is a difference in sheltering and protecting a child and limiting them. As parent we have to know the difference. Allowing them the freedom to learn builds in them the desire to know more.

Example: A young boy takes apart his electronic toys because he wants to know what is inside, what makes it work, how does it work. What do his parent do. Reprimand him and punish him. Deny him something he desires and more toys.

Freedom to learn:

Einstein’s  mother allowed him the freedom to learn. Every child has the potential to be something great in a field of his choice. A scientist, doctor, sports person, musician or even a chef. We have to allow our children to travel and see and learn. It will spark in them a fire for greatness.

Childhood is a learning process

there is more to learning about life than just what the schools offer

From the moment they are born children are constantly learning. 2bacfa2f4c30796d8f9ef7a52c75dd34.jpgThey learn the basics. Then they start asking questions about the things they don’t understand. Children learn a lot by observing. Wherever they go they see and learn. This applies even for simple things. If you take a child to the super market or to the jungle they will come back having learnt something new.

As parents 1813845900-f2924b77ac3bf0b076f2da5e6f154ba8.jpgwe have to capitalise on our children’s ability to learn and help them hone this skill.The best way for a child to learn is by seeing. We expect that our children should learn from text books and we don’t even want to consider the fact that .

Another aspect that most parents want to blind themselves to is that all the stuff in the text books is related to reality and need to be applied so. For a child to be successful in life they need to know more than just what is in the text books.

Many school encourage travel as a form of learning international school tours and educational school tours are promoted by some schools. These trips are very important for students as a part of their learning process in life. Most parents think that these are for fun and they don’t realise what a great impact this trip will have on the future of their child. It is not just a holiday but a whole experience of learning about life, self reliance, responsibility, travel procedures, discipline and much more.

Being in a new place children learn about the culture and the people. They get a first hand. experience of the language, the food and the general way of life in that place. In a new place the children get to see the popular sights during their sightseeing tours, they learn about the history and visit historical monuments. Being in a place give you exposure to their economy, you can learn about their geography and their general source of income, development and industrialization. This is all an integral part of learning that will serve the children well not only for their school study but also help them in their future life.  . .

How can you jeopardize your child’s future?

Parenting is no child’s play. We go on to live our routine lives with the ups and downs. Very often our children become the people on whom we vent our frustrations. Some Parents throw caution to the wind when it comes to filtering what to say to their children. When you pour garbage on your child what do your expect them to respond with?

Curbing children168b129bc4965ece058eaaa9f2d41da7.jpg

What really hampers a child’s growth and ability to flourish and achieve their potential is the limitations we place on them. I believe that a child should be given a certain amount of freedom to be themselves. Children should be allowed to travel and go places and learn about different cultures and places. Most parents have this aversion to allowing their child any freedom. It doesn’t lessen your controlling power over your child to give them some space some times.

2400.jpgI began taking my daughter on holiday trips to different places after she turned three. She may not remember much else from that age but she does remember the places, experiences and people. She remember what she saw and what she did there. Today she is a bright child, confident and knowledgeable.

Feel a place

What does travel actually mean? Going to a place, being there and feeling it for real. No amount of imagination can match that reality.  For a child to learn about a place in school books is great, but that is just a theoretical information. When they actually visit a place and feel see what it is like, feel that air and the culture it is a different form of learning all together.

Its not possible to visit all the places…Monuments.png

No its not. But it is possible to visit most of the places. Children have the opportunity to travel on school trips that are promoted by schools. Parents need to realise the importance of travel as a significant part of education to encourage it. Just as we go all lengths to pay our children’s school fees, we should also put in similar effort for their school arranged travel. Buying children toys and frivolous items are a waste of money. We need to invest in our children and give them those things that will reap them dividends and success in life like travel.

Reaching children

Developing family values during the formative years will help greatly at this stage. Parenting is the most difficult job in the world and one that most parents give so little thought to.

As children grow up they also grow apart from their parents. This is a usual phenomenon. At this stage we parents tend to enjoy the freedom that we get from our children no longer being so dependent of us. Some parents push their children further to being independent. This is a stage in a child’s life that needs to be handled with most caution. If we cling to our children and not give them space they pull London Bridgeaway. If we push towards independence they fly the roost and lose the family bo
nds. It is a very precarious balance that needs to be exercised. There is no common rule because each child is a unique individual with their own characteristics.

Developing family values during the formative years will help greatly at this stage. Parenting is the most difficult job in the world and one that most parents give so little thought to. Some parents tend to suddenly wake up when they realise their child is off-course or mixing with inappropriate company. This is the stage that parent
s try and reach out to their children. Every parent should know that it is never too late and however impossible the situation looks you can make a difference to your child’s life. Never give up on your child, believe in them and make sure you tell them that.

Hopefully most parents do not have to get to that stage and are able toimages (8) somehow get some sort of balance in child raising. The Indian culture of family values and the mother’s focus on her children and their upbringing is what keeps our families together. The career woman still tries to do her best when it comes to her family and children.

As parents we need to watch our words and actions, that is what our children will follow throughout their life as a model sample. This is tough and sometimes changes the very person that you are.South Asia Tour25

Education is important. When it comes to making the right decisions for your child when it comes to school activities, parents need to think of long term consequences and effects. For instance going on a school trip, the first thing a parent thinks of is cost or indulgence. But just stop and consider the positiv
e impact
that it will have on your child’s future. A tour promoted by the school is always with some benefit involved.Travelling has multiple benefits and one can never know what a great influence an international destination can have on a young impressionable mind, inspiring them to achieve great things in life. We should always give our children opportunities to learn and excel.
