गृह कार्य का उद्देश्य क्या है?

क्या आपको लगता है आपके बच्चे को गृह कार्य करने में परेशानी हो रही है?  यदि हां तो जाने की गृह कार्य देने का उद्देश्य क्या होता है- 

क्या आपको लगता है आपके बच्चे को गृह कार्य करने में परेशानी हो रही है?  यदि हां तो जाने की गृह कार्य देने का उद्देश्य क्या होता है-
गृह कार्य होमवर्क क्यों दिया जाता है?

होमवर्क या गृह कार्य क्यों दिया जाता है?

गृह कार्य देना या ना देना स्कूल या शिक्षक या अन्य किसी स्थानीय दृष्टिकोण पर आधारित होता है 

 कुछ शिक्षक  दूसरी कक्षा तक बच्चों को होमवर्क नहीं देते हैं

जबकि कुछ किंडर गार्डन में गृह कार्य देना आरंभ करते हैं

 कुछ शिक्षक होमवर्क बनाते हैं जबकि अन्य पहले से तैयार वर्कशीट का  उपयोग करते हैं

अभिभावक अपने बच्चों का गृह कार्य ना करें

 अधिकांश शिक्षक गृह कार्य का उपयोग यह जानने के लिए करते है कि बच्चा क्या और कितना जानता है

  वे नहीं चाहते कि माता-पिता अपने बच्चों का होमवर्क करें

शिक्षक अभिभावकों से आशा रखते हैं कि अभिभावक सुनिश्चित करें कि होमवर्क पूरा हो गया है

यदि  अभिभावकों को कोई गलती नजर आए तो वे उसकी समीक्षा करें 

अपने बच्चों का प्रयोजन कार्य / प्रोजेक्ट ना करें

 शिक्षक नहीं चाहते कि माता-पिता अपने बच्चों का प्रयोजन कार्य/ प्रोजेक्ट बनाएं

 अपितु वे चाहते हैं कि माता-पिता अपने बच्चों का मार्गदर्शन करें और प्रोजेक्ट में लगने वाली आवश्यक वस्तुओं का प्रबंध करें

आप चाहे तो इसके बारे में शिक्षक से जानकारी लेकर अपने बच्चे के साथ इसकी समीक्षा करें

गृह कार्य एवं रोज की पढ़ाई करने के लिए घर का कोई एक स्थान निश्चित करें

 सभी बच्चों को एक ही चीज की जरूरत होती है और वह है एक साफ-सुथरी जगह

 लेकिन ध्यान रखें कि प्रत्येक बच्चा अलग तरीके से काम करता है

 कुछ अपना काम रसोई की मेज पर तो कुछ अपने कमरे की डेस्क पर करना पसंद करते हैं

स्वभाव को देखते हुए उसके बैठक की जगह और समय सुनिश्चित करें

 कुछ बच्चे स्कूल के ठीक बाद होमवर्क करना पसंद करते हैं

दूसरों को एक लंबे समय के ब्रेक की आवश्यकता होती है

कुछ बच्चों को  शाम को कुछ नाश्ता करने के बाद होमवर्क करना पसंद आता है

 यदि आपका बच्चा स्कूल से आने के बाद अन्य किसी  क्लासेस के लिए जाता है तो होमवर्क करने का कोई एक समय निर्धारित कर ले

 आप जो भी दिनचर्या चुनते हैं अपने बच्चे को उसके अनुसार कार्य करने में  मार्गदर्शन करें

जाने कि आपका बच्चा  कैसे सबसे अच्छा अध्ययन करता है

उदाहरण के लिए, 

  • कुछ बच्चे शब्दों को वर्तनी लिखकर 
  •  दूसरे उसे आंखें बंद करके और उन्हें चित्रित करके उन्हें जोर से कहते हुए सीखेंगे 
  • बच्चों को अध्ययन के लिए एक अनुकूल वातावरण की आवश्यकता होती है
  •  कुछ बच्चे  संगीत सुनना चाहते हैं
  • कुछ को और के बीच में ही रह कर पढ़ने से मदद मिलती है 

 बच्चों को अनुकूल वातावरण चाहिए

 अपने बच्चे के व्यक्तित्व के अनुसार आप उन्हें घर का वातावरण  दे

अपने बच्चे के साथ है, मगर आसपास मंडे राय नहीं

 यह ध्यान रखें कि यह उनका कार्य है, आपका नहीं

आप उनके लिए तब उपलब्ध रहें जब उन्हें आपकी जरूरत हो

  एक्सपर्ट्स के अनुसार

एक आदर्श सेटअप में माता पिता अपना काम करते रहेंगे और बच्चा पास ही बैठा अपना ग्रह कार्य कर रहा होगा

लेकिन यह हमेशा संभव नहीं है

कई बार माता-पिता के पास अपने काम होते हैं

 उन्हें काम के सिलसिले में  घर से बाहर जाना पड़ता है या फिर मां को खाना पकाने के लिए रसोई में रहना होता है

यदि आप घर पर हैं तो अपने बच्चे को बताएं कि आप सहायता के लिए उपलब्ध है पर आप साथ में अपना भी काम कर रहे हैं

 यदि आप घर पर उपलब्ध नहीं है तो सुनिश्चित करें की एक विश्वसनीय वयस्क वहां हो जो कि आवश्यकता पड़ने पर बच्चे को होमवर्क में मार्गदर्शन दे सके

 यह भी याद रखें कि हर होमवर्क एक समान नहीं होता  इसलिए हर चीज पर आपके ध्यान की आवश्यकता नहीं होती

 मीडिया एक्स्पोज़र को सीमित  करें

जब आपका बच्चा होमवर्क करता है तो टीवी बंद कर दें। जब तक किसी जानकारी के लिए कंप्यूटर की आवश्यकता ना हो उसे भी बंद रखें

  बच्चे के होमवर्क शुरू करने से पहले आप उससे पूछ सकते हैं कि उसे अपना कार्य करने में कितना समय लगेगा

 याद रखें यदि कमरे में आप टीवी देख रहे हैं तो आपके बच्चे का ध्यान गृह कार्य में नहीं लगेगा

शिक्षक को बताएं कि आपने अपने बच्चे के गृह कार्य में उसकी कितनी मदद की है

यदि आपके बच्चे को अतिरिक्त सहायता की आवश्यकता है या वास्तव में कुछ समझ में नहीं आया है तो शिक्षक को बताएं 

शिक्षक को सूचना देने के लिए आप निम्नलिखित तरीके अपना सकते हैं

  •  असाइनमेंट पर लिखें की कार्य अभिभावक की मदद से किया गया है  
  • डायरी में लिखे या अलग से नोट कॉपी में लगा दे 

शिक्षकों द्वारा होमवर्क करने के कई उद्देश्य हो सकते हैं

  • जिसमें अभ्यास करवाना या
  • देखना कि बच्चा कितना सीख चुका है
  • उसे किन  विषयों में मदद की आवश्यकता है मूलभूत कारण होते हैं

इस अद्भुत यात्रा में आप सभी को शुभकामनाएँ।

Is Playschool Education Necessary?

Should you send your child to a playschool? Here's what you should consider before making the decision.
Is Playschool Education Necessary?

Should you send your child to a playschool? Here’s what you should consider before making the decision.


A few decades ago, the concept of playschools in India was unheard of, and few children, if any, attended playschool. Still, everyone grew up into mature, sensible, well read and well-spoken adults. Now however it seems as if every parent sends their pre-nursery child off to a playschool.

Most playschools in India are privately owned, and expensive. If you are wondering whether to send your child to a playschool or not, here’s what you should consider before making a decision.

Time

Do you have a lot of time that you can devote to your child?

If both you and your spouse are working and you don’t have a lot of spare time, you may not be around to teach your child much – with the result that when your child starts school he may lag behind his classmates who have attended playschool. However, if one spouse is a stay-at-home parent and has the time to attend to the children and teach them, you could consider not sending your child to a playschool. Remember that very young children too have an incredible ability to learn. Their brains are remarkably sharp, and it makes sense to put them in an environment conducive to learning at this young age.

Playschool Education – Academic routine

When deciding which playschool to send your child to, try and find something that isn’t very academically inclined. Your child shouldn’t be struggling, trying to learn something like math at such a young age. Instead, find a play school that focuses on letting a child have fun while learning.

Playschool Education – Social opportunities

Play schools also provide an opportunity for children to socialize with other children. In addition, he will also gradually get used to the concept of a classroom in an informal manner, making his transition into school that much easier. So, if you live in an isolated neighborhood or in a place where there are not many other children your child’s age, it makes sense to send your child to playschool. Your child will learn to interact with numerous children at a young age.

Yes, the social benefits of sending your child to playschool are undeniable, but don’t expect miracles. If your child is shy, sending him to playschool will not automatically transform him into a confident person. In addition, you may find that there are other ways to help your child socialize. If you have membership to your local club for example, you could consider enrolling your child in sports.

Routine

Sending your child to a playschool helps ease him into a routine earlier on. However, remember that even if your child doesn’t go to playschool initially, 12-14 years of schooling followed by college will get him accustomed to a routine anyway. Whether or not he continues with the discipline depends on his innate nature and the job he takes up – and not on whether he has been to playschool or not.

What’s the point of homework?

Wondering how to help your children with homework — or how to get them to do it without a struggle? Here’s how.

Wondering how to help your children with homework — or how to get them to do it without a struggle? Here's how.

What’s the point of homework?

“Homework is designed to help students reinforce key concepts, process and solidify new information, provide time for extra practice of skills, and reflect on how much they’ve learned,” notes teacher Susan Becker, M.Ed. However, approaches to homework vary from district to district, school to school and teacher to teacher. Some schools don’t give children homework until the 2nd grade, others start in kindergarten. Some teachers create original homework, while other use or modify prepared work sheets.

Don’t do the homework for your child.

Most teachers use homework to find out what the child knows. They do not want parents doing their children’s homework but do want parents to make sure homework is completed and review any mistakes to see what can be learned from them.

Don’t take over your child’s projects.

Teachers do not want parents doing their kids’ projects. Instead, they want parents to support their kids’ learning and make sure they have what they need to accomplish a task. Check with your child’s teacher for his policy and review it with your child.

Set up a good space to work.

All children need the same thing: a clean, well-lit space. But keep in mind that each child may work differently; some will do their work at the kitchen table and others at their desks in their rooms.

Pay attention to your child’s rhythms and help him find the right time to begin his work.

Some children will work best by doing homework right after school; others need a longer break and must run around before tackling the work. Most will need a snack. If your child does after-school activities, set a homework time before or after the activity, or after dinner. Whatever routine you choose, help your child stick to it.

Find out how your child studies best.

“You should find the ways your child likes to study. For example, some kids will learn spelling words by writing them out, others by closing their eyes and picturing them and saying them aloud,” . “The sound environment is also important,” .”Some kids may want to listen to music, some are helped by being in the middle of noise, others need absolute quiet.” These are some of the advises by the experts.

Don’t hover — but stay close by.

Keep in mind that it’s their homework, not yours, but remain available in case you are needed. “The ideal set up would be for a parent to be reading nearby while the child is studying because then you both are doing your educational work together, but that’s not always possible,” says Michael Thompson, Ph.D. “A parent may be working out of the home, or need to be working in the home and cooking dinner. So if you are home, stay close, and if you are not there, have another adult check to make sure it’s going OK. And remember that all homework is not equal, so not everything will need your rapt attention.”

Limit media exposure.

Turn off the TV and the iPod when your child does homework. And the computer too, unless it’s being used for research. You might start by asking how much time he thinks he should spend on this, and negotiate from there. Remember, you have the final word. And keep in mind that if you watch TV when your child can’t, the plan may backfire.

Let the teacher know if you gave your child a lot of homework help.

“If your child needs extra help or truly doesn’t understand something, let the teacher know. Write on the assignment, ‘done with parental help,’ or write a separate note,” advises experts. If your child resists, explain that homework is used to practice what you know and to show the teacher what you need help learning more about — so it’s a parent’s job to let the teacher know.

Happy childhood is every child’s right.

Children need to play, but this doesn’t require toys

Children need to play, but this doesn’t require toys.

Children need to play, but this doesn't require toys. They will explore their environment and examine articles that are interesting to them- from pots to pans to blocks."

“Children need to play, but this doesn’t require toys. They will explore their environment and examine articles that are interesting to them- from pots to pans to blocks.” says Deborah MacNamara, author of “Rest, Play, Grow” a manual for parents.  Before having my son, I was determined!

This means that children can find a lot of things to play with at home. they can play with things like cardboard pieces, pots, pans, blocks and many other things.

Children of different ages can use cardboard boxes, plastic bowls and lids, collections of plastic bottle caps, and other “treasures”.

As children grow, their relationships with toys change. While babies are mostly preoccupied with being around the people they are attached to, they can also be content exploring things with their mouths and hands.

As toddlers, they become more and more interested in the exploration of objects. During this stage, the key is to give them access to open-ended things that foster imagination. If we like to provide actual toys, things like building blocks, nesting cups, dolls or stuffed animals are good options.

children don’t need prescribed minimum number of toys to play . They played with each toy longer, allowing them to focus more and play more creatively. Parents should allow their children to gravitate towards the toys or objects that interest them.

Before having my son, I was determined!

Before having my son, I was determined to have a clean, tidy and organised living room 24×7 unlike the ones I had seen, taken over by toys.

But like all the other things I said, I would never do, it was difficult to avoid, once I was a parent. And I am thankful to God for having such a loving and caring family members. My children have always got all their best toys as gifts.

I have always tried to curtail their collection of toys. As a toddler, he had spent most of his time at home, playing with mixing bowl and measuring cups.

Before having my son, I was determined to have a clean living room 24×7.

As I watched him enjoying and playing with gift boxes and wrappings while ignoring the toys inside, I became curious about how many toys kids actually need. So I decided to do some research. Thanks to Google, I got answers to all my questions. 

As a mother, I am putting down all my finding related to toys, parenting, food and everything that a parent need to this blog. This will satisfy your curiosity and save your time.

Safe toys? Safety points to keep in mind while buying toys for your kids.

Safe toys? Safety points to keep in mind while buying toys for your kids. When we buy toys for our kids we keep many things in mind. It can be about the purpose, occasion and need etc. We should also be careful about the safety issues associated with any toy.

When we are shopping for a toy for our kids, we should keep in mind that unsafe toys or unsuitable toys often have the following characteristics:

  1. Do not meet basic safety checks (toys should not chip or emit colors) and do not indicate “suitable for children.” Toy safety issues, safe toys are very important part in selection.
  2. Toys Promote violence, the practice of unhealthy habits, and discrimination on basis of race, culture, gender, etc.
  3. Avoid flying toys and projectile-firing toys
  4. Are inadequate for the intended child and do not respond to their interests, age or tastes
  5. Avoid toys with sharp or rigid points.

Safe toys? Points to keep in mind while shopping for a toy for our kids ( shopping for toys) :

  • Safety first, always.
  • Don’t stress out too much about the educational value of toys for babies and toddlers because all of life is new and educational for the very young.
  • Bright colors and shapes…no small pieces.
  • Easy for little hands to grip or hang onto.
  • Things that encourage movement, crawling, walking, etc.
  • Things that make gentle, musical sounds.
  • A variety of ‘feels’ from soft to hard to cushy to stretchy.
  • And, finally, books, books, books.  It’s never too soon.

As parents, it is important to keep a few things in mind before purchasing toys for toddlers and infants:

  • Safety-Plastic toys mostly have sharp edges which can hurt children. It can be hazardous for them and can be injurious in sensitive parts like eyes. It is always advised to buy wooden material toys. They have curved edges which do not hurt children and even if swallowed will not cause any harm to children.
  • Simple Toys- In this era of digitization, toys are getting more complex and confusing day by day. The golden rule for children is the simpler the toy is, they are more likely to enjoy it. Complex toys can potentially confuse children with too many inputs. So simple, yet challenging is the mantra.
  • Value For Money- With prices for toys going up because of the associated brand value, it is good to see if the toy is really worth the money paid in terms of entertainment and learning for the child.

Keep your kid’s interests in mind, while encouraging him to expand his horizons. Kids learn through play. It’s through play that they’ll develop motor skills, social skills, literacy and math comprehension. You really can’t go wrong, no matter what you choose.

Why do we buy toys for our children? Part 1 of 3.

Why do we buy toys for our children?As parents, practically, you don’t need a reason to buy toys. But is it the correct way? 

Please also read Do children need a room full of toys? Rethink.

No, it is not. We cross by the shop and we buy a toy because our child likes those building blocks or cars.

Why do we buy toys for our children? Part 1 of 3.

 Following could to some of the occasions we buy toys:

  • It is our child’s birthday, or any such occasion.
  • It is sibling’s birthday, and we don’t want the other child in the house to feel left out, so we buy two of them.
  • We are visiting a mall or shopping for something else and our child starts to disturb us. To do our work uninterrupted, we buy a diversion for our kid.
  • We are going outstation, and ourchild is not enjoying the event or trip, we buy one more diversion. Even if we have a shelf full at home.
  • We are with some friends and they bought a toy for their child, so we get influenced to buy one for our kid, because we must. (sounds crazy, but how many of us can say NO, to this)
  • If we have siblings fighting for the toys at home most of the time, we buy two toys next time, to avoid any fighting at home.
  • We are we happy for some reason, we buy toys for our kids
  • We are feeling  guilty of scolding, we buy toys.
  • Child got hurt, we buy toys to calm him or her down.
As parents/elders we are in these situations when we can not avoid gifting a new toy to our child. They deserve to have toys with them. Because it is their age to enjoy and play with toys.

As parents/elders we are in these situations when we can not avoid gifting a new toy to our child. They deserve to have toys with them. Because it is their age to enjoy and play with toys. 

But can we just avoid doing it too much? 

Why do we buy toys for our children? Part 1 of 3.

These points are not mentioned here,to stop giving toys to our children.

Read the above points again and you might notice, some buying could have been avoided.

Some suggestions, for the next time there is an urge to buy toys:

  • What’s the occasion?
  • Can buy a team game, instead of buying individual toys? (this might create a better environment at home. )
  • What kind of toy, my child is most interested in?
  • Do I really have to buy toys of the same nature, and make a collection of the same. ( if your child loves car, do you really need to buy twenty more cars, and make a collection out of it. Are you not limiting his or her imagination.)
  • Am I buying this toy because i like it and i want my child to like it too. (if this is the reason, please buy  that toy, and make sure you play that game with your child.)
  • Am I buying it as a showoff? (it is always better to develop the habit of sharing between the kids. 
  • If you are feeling happy, give some time to your child. Your time is more valuable than the toy.
  • You have scolded your child for some reason, don’t buy gifts, take him outdoors, play with him, and slowly tell him your good intentions, worries and reason behind that scolding.
  • Child is hurt, and this might divert his attention. (very personal choice and differ from child to child)

Hope these points are of some use to you. Please mention in comments box if you have any other reason for buying toys, to the kids who already have plenty of toys to play.

Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.

Development of a child will be more with lesser toys. While most of the space in our child’s almirah is filled with toys, we can become wise parents and learn to limit the number of toys that our kids have to play with.

Toys are not something to just play with. Toys form the building blocks for our child’s future and development. They teach our children about the world and about themselves. They send messages and communicate values. So, intelligent and wise parents think about what foundation is being laid by the toys that are given to their kids. And they want toys that lead to development of the child.

Wise parents also think about the number of toys that children are given. They understand that fewer toys will actually benefit their child’s development in the long-term:

  • Children learn to be more organised. They  live in a cleaner, tidier home. If you have children, you know that toy clutter can quickly take over an entire home. Fewer toys results in a less-cluttered, cleaner, healthier home.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child's development. Having lesser toys, is a better idea to give your child a childhood full of learning. It is not that toys are not important for a child. They are important. But, we don't have to keep giving them a toy in the very first chance we get. Lesser toys will lead to better development of a child.

  • Increase in the creativity of a child. Too many toys prevent kids from fully developing their gift of imagination.  Although boredom set in during the initial stages of the experiment, the children soon began to use their basic surroundings to invent games and use imagination in their playing.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children learn perseverance. Children who have too many toys give up too quickly. If they have a toy that they can’t figure out, it will quickly be discarded for the sake of a different, easier one. Kids with fewer toys learn perseverance, patience, and determination.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children become less selfish. Kids who get everything they want believe they can have everything they want. 

  •  Kids establish better social skills. Children with fewer toys learn how to develop interpersonal relationships with other kids and adults. They learn the give and take of a good conversation. 

  • Children develop a sense of responsibility for their belongings. When kids have too many toys, they will naturally take less care of them. They will not learn to value them if there is always a replacement ready at hand. If you have a child who is constantly damaging their toys, just take a bunch away. He will quickly learn.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Children experience more of nature. Children who do not have a basement full of toys are more apt to play outside and develop a deep appreciation for nature. They are also more likely to be involved in physical exercise which results in healthier and happier bodies.

  •  Due to Fewer options to play, kids develop a habit of reading, writing a learning faster than children who have lots of games to occupy their time. Fewer toys allows your children to love books, music, coloring, and painting. And a love for art will help them better appreciate beauty, emotion, and communication in their world.

  • Kids become more resourceful. Fewer toys causes children to become resourceful by solving problems with only the materials at hand. And resourcefulness is a gift with unlimited potential.
Lesser toys will be more fruitful for the child’s development.
  • Kids argue with each other less. This may seem counter-intuitive. Many parents believe that more toys will result in less fighting, because, there are more options available. However, the opposite is true far too often. Siblings argue about toys.

  •  Kids learn to find satisfaction outside of the toy store. True joy and contentment will never be found in the aisles of a toy store. Children need encouragement to live counter-cultural lives finding joy in things that truly last.

  • Increase in the attention span of a child. When too many toys are introduced into a child’s life, their are unable to pay attention to one set of toys. This decreases the attention span to a child. A child will rarely learn to fully appreciate the toy in front of them when there are countless options.

Having lesser toys, is a better idea to give your child a childhood full of learning. It is not that toys are not important for a child. They are important. But, we don’t have to keep giving them a toy in the very first chance we get.

Alternatively, we should limit the number of toys, and give our child a chance to explore things around him.

क्या होगा अगर मेरा बच्चा खाना* नहीं चाहता है?

क्या होगा अगर मेरा बच्चा खाना* खाना नहीं चाहता है? कई बार बच्चे खाना* नहीं खाना चाहते। वह अब सुस्त और गुमसुम सा रहता है। ज्यादा देर खेलता भी नहीं। पूरे दिन चिड़चिड़े से रहते है। शाम को खेलने या पड़ने में मन नहीं लगता। इस तरह की समस्या के समाधान दो आसान उपाय हो सकते हैं।

अनिल एक बहुत चंचल बच्चा है, क्लास में भी हर गतिविधि में बाकी बच्चों कि ही तरह भाग लेता रहा है। घर में भी उसे देख कर किसी को खास चिंता नहीं होती थी। मगर पिछले तीन चार महीनों से उसकी ये आदतें बदल सी गई है। वह अब सुस्त और गुमसुम सा रहता है। ज्यादा देर खेलता भी नहीं। पूरे दिन चिडचिड़ा सा रहता है। अब शाम को खेलने या पड़ने में भी उसका मन नहीं लगता। अनिल के घर वाले ये सब महसूस कर रहे हैं। 

क्या होगा अगर मेरा बच्चा खाना* खाना नहीं चाहता है? वह अब सुस्त और गुमसुम सा रहता है। इस तरह की समस्या के समाधान दो आसान उपाय हो सकते हैं।

क्या होगा अगर बच्चा खाना* नहीं खाना चाहते?

अब इस तरह की समस्या के समाधान दो आसान उपाय हो सकते हैं। 

1. यह निश्चित करना की बच्चा बीमार नहीं है या पेट में कीड़े नहीं है, आप डॉक्टर से परामर्श  करें।

2. क्या बच्चे की दिनचर्या में ऐसा कोई बदलाव आया है, जिसके कारण वो ऐसा कर रहा है। 

पहली स्थिति में तो डॉक्टर के दिए दिशा निर्देशों का पालन करें। दूसरी स्थिति में बहुत से कारण हो सकते हैं।

जिनमे से सबसे आसानी के सुधार पाने वाला कारण भोजन  से सम्बन्धित हो सकता है।

यदि हाल ही में आपके बच्चे की खुराक में बदलाव आया है तो

यह भी व्यवहार में बदलाव का कारण हो सकता है। 

बच्चे की बदलती खुराक के कई कारण हो सकते हैं:

  • उनका मूड – वह थका हुआ, परेशान या उत्तेजित महसूस करेगा तो उनकी खुराक में बदलाव होगा। 
  •   उनकी सेहत : बच्चों की सेहत ठीक नहीं होने पर भी उनकी खुराक कम हो जाती है। ऐसे में जब बच्चे ठीक हो जाते हैं, तो वापस खुराक में सुधार आने लगता है। 
  • दिन का समय: यदि हर दिन भोजन करने के समय में बदलाव आता है, तो खुराक भी अलग हो सकती है। 
  • भोजन के प्रकार की पेशकश: परोसे गए भोजन का भी खुराक पर असर होता है। यदि बच्चे ने नाश्ता बहुत सारा या गरिष्ट किया है तो भी उस भूख कम लगेगी। भोजन बच्चे की पसंद का है या नहीं यह भी खुराक में बदलाव लाता है।
  • वे कितने सक्रिय हैं। यदि बच्चा सामान्य रूप से खेलता है या दिन में ज्यादा समय बैठ कर बीतता है तो दोनो स्थिति में उसकी खुराक में अंतर होगा।

  • यदि आपका बच्चा कभी-कभी भोजन नहीं करता या बहुत कम खाता है तो यह ठीक है।
  • एक बार का भोजन या स्नैक  छूट जाने से बच्चे के स्वास्थ को नुकसान नहीं पहुंचता। “नहीं” कहना आपके बच्चे की पसंद या आज़ादी का तरीका भी है।
  • यदि आपका बच्चा खाने के लिए नहीं बैठ सकता है, तो भोजन या नाश्ते से पहले कुछ समय उस शांत वातावरण दें।
  • भोजन के समय को शांत रखें और टीवी, सेल फोन, टैबलेट और कंप्यूटर बंद कर दें।
  • खाने के लिए पुरस्कार के रूप में मिठाई या पसंदीदा भोजन का उपयोग करना आवश्यक नहीं है।
  • यदि आपका बच्चा भोजन पसंद नहीं करता है, या खाना नहीं चाहता है, तो भोजन को हटा दें और 1 से 2 घंटे बाद एक स्वस्थ नाश्ता पेश करें।

इस तरह उस धीरे से ये समझ में आएगा कि खाना हर समय उपलब्ध नहीं होगा।

उस जब भोजन परोसा गया है, तब नहीं खाने पर, फिर उसे अगले कुछ घंटे कुछ नहीं मिलेगा।

इस तरह उसकी आदत पड़ जाएगी।

शुरू में ऐसा करना थोड़ा कठिन होगा या अच्छा नहीं लगेगा,

मगर, एक दो हफ्ते में बच्चे की खुराक और आदतों में बदलाव जरूर आयेगा।

खाना? मुझे अपने बच्चे को कब खाना परोसना चाहिए?बच्चों को खाना खिलाना, मां का दिन भर का सबसे बड़ा काम हो सकता है, और सबसे ज्यादा समय लेने वाला भी। इसी बीच जब बच्चे की थाली परोस दी गई है, पर वह नहीं खाता तो, मां, दिन भर उसके खाने की चिंता करती रहती है। ऐसे में एक प्रश्न जो मां के दिमाग में आता है –

मुझे अपने बच्चे को कब खाना परोसना चाहिए?

अक्सर इस प्रश्न के कई तरह के उत्तर मिलते हैं, जो, आस पास के लोग या घर के बड़ों के हम तक पहुंचते हैं।

अक्सर हम पूरे समय बच्चे के पीछे खाना लेकर घूमते रहते हैं। और कई बार हम बच्चे को जबरदस्ती खिलते है।

मुझे अपने बच्चे को कब खाना परोसना चाहिए?

अब आप ये तरीके भी अपनाकर देखें।

  • पूरे दिन खाने के लिए पीछे भागने के बदले, अपने बच्चे को दिन में 3 बार नाश्ता और 2 बार पूरा भोजन दें। 
  • हर दिन लगभग एक ही समय पर भोजन और नाश्ता परोसने का प्रयास करें। 
  • भोजन और नाश्ते का एक योजना बद्ध अनुकरण आपके बच्चे में खाने की आदतों को विकसित करने में मदद कर सकती है।
  • आपके बच्चे को आपके मुकाबले खाने में अधिक समय लग सकता है।
  •  उन्हें खाने को खत्म करने का समय दें। 
  • यदि आपको लगता है कि बच्चे का खाने में मन नहीं लग रहा और वो खाने से खेल कर रहा है, तो उसके सामने के खाना हटा दें, और उसको मेज से उतर कर खेलने छोड़ दें। 
  • इस तरह धीरे से बच्चा ये समझ जाएगा कि खेलना और खाना एक साथ नहीं हो सकता।
  • यदि बच्चे को कोई स्वस्थ से सम्बन्धित दिक्कत नहीं है, और वह रोज खेल कूद कर रहा है तो निश्चित रहें।
  •  बच्चे कभी भी भूखे नहीं रहते, वो अपनी आवशयकताओं के अनुसार खा लेते हैं।
  • बच्चे को दिन भर ना खिलाएं, इससे उन्हें भूख का अहसास नहीं होता।
