From ages 13 and Up

Become friends with your child. At this age forcing rules will not work. Talk to your child about natural consequences of their behaviour. By now you’ve laid the groundwork. Your child knows what’s expected and that you mean what you say about the penalties for bad behavior. 

What can be done:

  • Discipline is just as important for teens as it is for younger kids. But the approach needs to be changed. Just as with;the 3-year-old who needs you to set a bedtime and enforce it, your teen needs boundaries, too.
  • Sit and Set rules. Set up rules regarding homework, visits by friends, curfews, and dating. Discuss the rules beforehand with your teenager so there will be no misunderstandings. Your teen will probably complain from time to time, but also will realize that you’re in control. It might sound hard but teens still want and need you to set limits and enforce order in their lives, even as you grant them greater freedom and responsibility.
  • Privileges are privileges. When your teen does break a rule, taking away privileges may seem the best plan of action. For example, while it’s fine to take away the car for a week,it is also important to tell them why it was done. 
  • Be sure to discuss why coming home an hour past curfew is unacceptable and worrisome.
  • Don’t control your child through and through. Remember to give a teenager some control over things. Not only will this limit the number of power struggles you have, it will help your teen respect the decisions that you do need to make. For example, allow your younger teen to make decisions concerning clothes, hair styles, or even the condition of his or her room. As your teen gets older, that realm of control might be extended to include an occasional relaxed curfew.
  • Have your teen earn a later curfew by demonstrating positive behavior instead of setting an earlier curfew as punishment for irresponsible behavior.

Rule you should remember: 

It’s important to focus on the positives. Include your child in discussions in the family and allow them to put their views. 

Happy childhood is every child’s right.

Discipline – 9 to 12 yrs Old Child

How To Discipline Your Child

It is important to stick to some form of discipline consistently for your child. Parents also need to stick to those rules and consequences, if they don’t, their kids aren’t likely to either.

From ages 6 to 8 yrs

Ages 9 to 12 yrs

Just as with all ages, kids in this age group mature and request more independence and responsibility.They can be disciplined with natural consequences. 

What can be done:

  • Life Lessons are more valuable. Teaching them how to deal with the consequences of their behavior is an effective and appropriate method of discipline. For example, if your fifth grader’s homework isn’t done before bedtime, should you make him or her stay up to do it or even lend a hand yourself? Probably not — you’ll miss an opportunity to teach a key life lesson. If homework is incomplete, your child will go to school the next day without it and suffer the resulting bad grade. Don’t worry, some bad grades are OK, if they are giving life lessons to your child.
  • Mistakes do favor your child. It’s natural for parents to want to rescue kids from mistakes. Let your child make some mistakes and learn from them. Kids see what behaving improperly can mean and probably won’t make those mistakes again. 
  • Take away privileges. If your child does not seem to be learning from natural consequences, set up some of your own to help change the behavior. Removing privileges such as electronics can be an effective consequence for this age group.

Rule you should remember: 

Become friends with your child. At this age forcing rules will not work. Talk to your child about natural consequences of their behaviour.

Some effective discipline strategies for this age group.

What can be done:

  • Timeouts: Timeouts can be effective discipline for toddlers. For example, if a child has been hitting, biting, or throwing food, should be told why the behavior is unacceptable and taken to a designated timeout area. A timeout can be a place like a kitchen chair or bottom stair. 
  • Consequences: Before you punish your child for their behavior, explain to them what you expect. For example, when your child uses crayons, she will use it on the walls. Don’t scold. Discuss why that’s not allowed. Tell them the consequences that what will happen if your child does it again (for instance, your child will have to help clean the wall and will not be able to use the crayons for the rest of the day). 
  • Consistency is crucial, as is follow-through. Follow your promises of discipline or else you risk undermining your authority. Kids have to believe that you mean what you say. You can give second chances or allow a certain margin of error, but for the most part, you should act on what you say.
  • Make realistic threats of consequences. Be careful not to make unrealistic threats like “You’ll never watch TV again!” in anger, since not following through could weaken all your threats. If you threaten to turn the car around and go home if the squabbling in the backseat doesn’t stop, make sure you do exactly that. The credibility you’ll gain with your kids is much more valuable than a lost outing.
  • Too much will not work. Huge punishments may take away your power as a parent. For example: If you ground your son or daughter for a month, your child may not feel motivated to change behaviors because everything has already been taken away. 

Rule you should remember: 

Set small goals. It may help to set some goals that kids can meet to earn back privileges that were taken away for misbehavior.

From ages 3 to 5 yrs.

Now as your child is grown. He begins to understand the connection between actions and consequences. So start communicating the rules of your family’s home to him in simple ways.

What can be done:

  • Before you punish your child for their behavior, explain to them what you expect. For example, when your child uses crayons, she will use it on the walls. Don’t scold. Discuss why that’s not allowed. Tell them the consequences that what will happen if your child does it again (for instance, your child will have to help clean the wall and will not be able to use the crayons for the rest of the day). 
  • You can also give them a particular area to do her artwork. Just paste some self stick Vinyl wallpaper. Ask your child to limit herself to that portion. And let her do the cleaning also. Or otherwise if you want her to stay limited to paper if the wall gets decorated again, issue a reminder that crayons are for paper only. And then enforce the consequences. 
  • Consistency is the key to effective discipline. It’s sometimes easier for parents to ignore occasional bad behavior or not follow through on consequences, this sets a bad precedent. This way kids will test limits. It’s important for parents to decide (together, if you are not a single parent) what are the rules of the house and then uphold them. 
  • Discipline is not just about punishment, it’s also about recognizing good behavior. While you become clear on what behaviors will not be accepted, don’t forget to reward good behaviors. Never undermine the positive effect that your praise can have on your child. Like saying “I’m proud of you for sharing your toys at playgroup” works better than  punishing a child who didn’t share. 
  • Be specific when giving praise rather than just saying “Good job!” You want to make it clear which behaviors you liked. Being specific makes these behaviours more likely to happen in the future.

Rule you should remember: 

The more attention we give to a behavior, the more likely it is to continue.

If your child continues an unacceptable behavior no matter what you do,then try 

  • Making a behaviour chart with a box for each day of the week. Decide with your child how many times your child can misbehave before a consequence kicks in or how long the proper behavior must be seen before it is rewarded. Make entries in the chart and then track the good and unacceptable behaviors every day. This will give your child (and you) a concrete look at how it’s going. Once this begins to work, praise your child for learning to control misbehavior (especially for overcoming any stubborn problem).
  • For kids at this age timeouts also can work well. Pick a suitable timeout place that’s free of distractions, such as a chair or bottom step. Be alert on selecting a timeout place. “Getting sent to your room” isn’t effective if a computer, TV, or games are there. Also, remember a timeout is time away from any type of reinforcement. So your child shouldn’t get any attention from you while in a timeout  which includes talking, eye contact, etc.
  • Considering proper length of time for timeout is important. Be sure to consider what works best for your child. 

Experts say rule you should remember:

1 minute for each year of age or timeout until the child is calmed down (to teach self-regulation). 

What can be done:

  • It’s important to make sure that if a timeout happens because your child didn’t follow directions, you follow through with the direction after the timeout.
  • It’s important to tell kids what the right thing to do is not just to say what the wrong thing is. For example, instead of saying “Don’t jump on the couch,” try “Please sit on the furniture and put your feet on the floor.”
  • Don’t confuse your child. Be sure to give clear, direct commands. Instead of “Could you please put your shoes on?” say “Please put your shoes on.” This leaves no room for confusion and does not imply that following directions is a choice.

From ages 0 to 2 yrs

Babies and toddlers are naturally curious. Whatever comes to their hand reach their mouth too. It’s wise to eliminate temptations from their reach. These temptations and no-nos could be anything like stationery, kitchen articles, TVs and video equipment, stereos, jewelry, and especially toxic cleaning supplies and medicines. 

When your crawling baby or toddler goes toward dangerous or unacceptable play object, calmly say “No”. 

Avoid giving physical punishment to a child of any age. So, let’s see what are the other ways to discipline your child.

Rule you should remember: 

Take your child away from that object or area which is the cause of inappropriate behaviour and distract him or her with some other activity.

What can be done:

  • Timeouts can be effective discipline for toddlers. For example, if a child has been hitting, biting, or throwing food, should be told why the behavior is unacceptable and taken to a designated timeout area. A timeout can be a place like a kitchen chair or bottom stair. 
  • Just keep in mind timeout for toddlers are effective only when it is just a short time like for a minute or two to calm him down.Babies and toddlers cannot connect the relation between their behavior and physical punishment. They will just feel the pain.
  • It is also important to remember that kids learn a lot by watching their elders.So it will be better to make a much stronger impression by doing things you expect your child to follow. For example, by putting your own belongings away rather than just ordering your child to pick up toys while your stuff is all around the place.

9 Tips – spend quality time with your child

9 Tips for spending quality time with your child

Life is busy and between work and life responsibilities, the days pass us by in the blink of an eye. Parents have a common concern that they are not able to spend enough time with their children. They wonder if this could lead to developmental delays. Some parents feel guilty about working full time, or experience anxiety about choosing to work out at the gym or go to dinner with friends.

On top of that when you see a social media posts from stay-at-home parents who are able to take their children to the local zoo or work on colors and the alphabet with them only add to this anxiety.

But have no despair! Recent studies have shown that spending quality time is much more important than quantity of time. This is not to negate the importance of time spent with children. Children need high-quality time with parents and caregivers. Quality time spent with the parents and caregiver is most beneficial to children and it leaves a positive effect on them as they grow. It isn’t about endless hours of time but it’s about how you choose to spend that time that truly matters.

As parents and caregivers, we can make choices to ensure time spent with our children is high-quality.

9 Tips for spending quality time with your child

1. “WE” Time 

     Have a daily “WE” time with your child. Do this face-to-face, if possible; but if this isn’t an option, create a routine for doing so in other ways, such as leaving a note in your child’s lunch bag, posting a note by his toothbrush, or writing an encouraging saying on a shared whiteboard in the house.

2.     Daily Ritual

     Create a special ritual for you and your child—something that can be done every day. For example, let your child choose and read one book with you at bedtime.

3. Say the magic word daily

     Tell your child you love her every day. And tell her how important she is to you and how she makes you feel.

4. Reinforce positive behavior

     For example, if your child completes his chores without your asking, do acknowledge it with words of appreciation.

5. Meal Minutes

     Make and eat meals with your children whenever possible. If time is limited, look for simple meals that require very little preparation, or grab a healthy snack such as an apple and sit for a few minutes and chat with your child.

6. “You Choose” Activity

     Schedule time for doing an activity of your child’s choosing. Be sure to follow through and complete the activity without any distractions.

7. Play with your child

     Play with your child, even if it’s during bath time or outside before you drop her off at preschool. Every little bit of time makes a positive impact!

8. Be Silly

     Laugh and be silly with your child.

9. NO-Tech.

     Turn off technology when you spend time with your child. Try not to text, answer calls, scroll through social media, or watch television.

To make your relationship stronger with your child you need to spend quality time with them, not quantity of time. Keep it simple and connect with your child in ways that make sense for your lifestyle and relationships. Each connection has a lasting impact and provides the support and reassurance* that your child needs.

Parents play a very important role in their child’s life.

Happy parenting is every parent’s delight.

All the best wishes to you on this amazing journey. This will surely give us an easy life.

अपने बच्चे के साथ क्वालिटी टाइम बिताने की 9 टिप्स

अपने बच्चे के साथ क्वालिटी टाइम बिताने की 9 टिप्स

माता पिता का बच्चों के साथ बिताया समय ऐसा होना चाहिए वो सही मायनों में बच्चों को दिया गया विशेष समय हो।

 यहां व्यस्त परिवारों के लिए नौ सुझाव दिए गए हैं:

अपने बच्चों के साथ पर्याप्त समय (क्वालिटी टाइम) व्यतीत नहीं कर पा रहे हैं?

आज हर व्यक्ति का जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है और काम और जीवन की जिम्मेदारियों के बीच, दिन पलक झपकते ही बीत जाते हैं। इससे बीच माता-पिता को ये चिंता सताती कि वे अपने बच्चों के साथ पर्याप्त समय (क्वालिटी टाइम) व्यतीत नहीं कर पा रहे हैं। 

उन्हें चिंता रहती है कि इससे बच्चों के विकास में देरी हो सकती है।

ऐसे में जब आप घर में रहने वाले माता-पिता का एक सोशल मीडिया पोस्ट देखते हैं।

 जिसमें वे अपने बच्चों को पढ़ा रहे है, उनके साथ चित्रकारी कर रहे है या स्थानीय चिड़ियाघर ले जा रहें हैं, तो आपकी चिंता और बढ़ जाती है।

आप निराश ना हों! हाल के अध्ययनों से पता चला है कि समय की मात्रा की तुलना में गुणवत्ता से समय बिताना अधिक महत्वपूर्ण है। 

यहां हम बच्चों को कम समय देने की या उनका समय काटने की बात नहीं कर रहे हैं। बच्चों को माता-पिता और देखभाल करने वालों के साथ उच्च-गुणवत्ता वाला समय चाहिए। 

माता-पिता के साथ बिताया गया गुणवत्ता का समय बच्चों के लिए अधिक फायदेमंद होता है। और यह अनुभव बड़े होने पर उन पर सकारात्मक प्रभाव छोड़ता है। 

माता पिता का बच्चों के साथ बिताया समय ऐसा होना चाहिए वो सही मायनों में बच्चों को दिया गया विशेष समय हो।

 यहां व्यस्त परिवारों के लिए नौ सुझाव दिए गए हैं:

1. “हमारा” समय

     अपने बच्चे के साथ दैनिक रूप से बैठिए। आप इससे “हमारा” समय कह कर भी संभोधित कर सकते है। और यदि ऐसा करना संभव ना हो तो अन्य तरीकों को अपनी दिनचर्या में जोड़ें।

जैसे कि आपके बच्चे के लंच बॉक्स में एक नोट छोड़ना या घर के व्हाइटबोर्ड पर कुछ अच्छा लिखना।

2. दैनिक कार्य

     आप और आपके बच्चे के लिए एक विशेष कार्य निश्चित करें जो आप रोज करें।

उदाहरण के लिए, सोने से पहले बच्चे की रुचि की कोई किताब उसके साथ पढ़ें।

3. प्यार का महत्व

     अपने बच्चे को बताएं कि आप हर दिन उससे प्यार करते हैं।

और उसे बताएं कि वह आपके लिए कितना महत्वपूर्ण है और वह आपको कैसा महसूस कराता है।

4. प्रशंसा करें

     उदाहरण के लिए, यदि आपका बच्चा आपके कहे बिना ही कुछ अच्छा करे तो उसकी प्रशंसा जरूर करें।

4. साथ खाएं

     जब भी संभव हो अपने बच्चों के साथ भोजन बनाएं और खाएं। यदि समय सीमित है, तो साधारण कुछ ऐसा बनाए जो आसान है और जिसमें बहुत कम तैयारी की आवश्यकता हो।

सेब जैसे स्वस्थ स्नैक कहते हुए भी आप बच्चों से दिन भर की बातें कर सकते हैं।

6. “आप चुनें” 

     अपने बच्चे को उपयोग में आने वाला चीज़ों का चयन करने दें।

फिर यदि आपको लगे कुछ अनुचित खरीदा जा रहा है, तो उसके बारे में बच्चे को कारण सहित स्पष्टीकरण दें।  

7. अपने बच्चे के साथ खेलें

     अपने बच्चे के साथ खेलें। बच्चे के साथ बिताया गया हर समय उससे व्यक्तित्व विकास को सकारातमकता प्रदान करेगा।

8. मूर्ख बनो

     उनके प्रश्नों के उत्तर में कभी कभी आप मूर्ख बने रहें। या उनसे प्रश्न पूछें।

9. ध्यान भटकने वाली चीजें थोड़ी देर दूर रखें।

     जब आप अपने बच्चे के साथ समय बिताते हैं तो बाकी सब बंद कर दें।

फोन, आ ई पेड,, सोशल मीडिया या टेलीविजन ना देखें।

अपने बच्चे के साथ अपने रिश्ते को मजबूत बनाने के लिए आपको उनके साथ क्वालिटी टाइम बिताने की जरूरत है। 

माता-पिता अपने बच्चे के जीवन में बहुत महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाते हैं।

इस अद्भुत यात्रा में हम सब साथ हैं।

Parent’s role in a child’s life?

Parent’s Role in Child’s life

“Parents can inspire kids to grow up to love learning and do well in school, by paying less attention to the actual specifics of the homework, but instead by creating learning-rich environments in and outside of the home.”

Be a role model for learning

In the early years, parents are their children’s first teachers — exploring nature, reading together, cooking together, and counting together. When a young child begins formal school, the parent’s job is to show him how school can extend the learning you began together at home, and how exciting and meaningful this learning can be. parents become their children’s learning coaches, as preschoolers grow into school age kids. Parents help their kids organize their time and support their desires to learn new things in and out of school, Through guidance and reminders.

Pay attention to what your child loves

 A parent can do is notice her child. Find out if he is a talker or is he shy? Find out what interests him and help him explore it.

Tune into how your child learns

By paying attention to how your child learns, you may be able to pique his interest and explain tough topics by drawing pictures together, creating charts, building models, singing songs and even making up rhymes.

Many children use a combination of modalities to study and learn:

  •  Some learn visually through making and seeing pictures, 
  • others through tactile experiences, like building block towers and working with clay. 
  • Still others are auditory learners who pay most attention to what they hear. 
  • And they may not learn the same way their siblings (or you) do.

Practice what your child learns at school

Many teachers encourage parents to:

  • go over what their young children are learning in a non-pressured way, and 
  • to practice what they may need extra help with. 

This doesn’t mean drilling them for success, but it may mean:

  • going over basic counting skills, multiplication tables or letter recognition, depending on the needs, and
  • Reviewing the topics depending upon the learning level of your child. Please note, reviewing is different from being a drill machine.
  • And when you do review, your child should be willing to do it. There is no use of sitting for hours when your child is not present there mentally.

Set aside time to read together

Setting some time to read together really helps with: 

  • Spending some productive time with your child 
  • This will improve reading skills of your child.
  • Read aloud regularly, even to older kids.
  • If your child is a reluctant reader, reading aloud will expose her to the structure and vocabulary of good literature and get her interested in reading more. 
  • You read one chapter aloud, let your child read another to himself. 
  • Let kids pick the books they like. Book series are great for reluctant readers. 
  • It’s OK to read easy, interesting books instead of harder novels.

Parent’s Role in Child’s life

Connect what your child learns to everyday life

 Make learning part of your child’s everyday experience, especially when it comes out of your child’s natural questions.

  • When you drive in the car, count license plates and talk about the states. 
  • Do measuring math, when you cook together. 
  • When you turn on the blender, explore how it works together. 
  • When your child studies the weather, talk about why it was so hot at the beach. 

Have give-and-take conversations, listening to your child’s ideas instead of pouring information into their heads.

Connect what your child learns to the world

Find age-appropriate ways to help your older child connect his school learning to world events. Start by asking questions. For example, 

  • ask a second-grader if she knows about a recent event, and what’s she heard.
  • Then ask what she could do to help (such as sending supplies to flood victims). 
  • You might ask a younger child if he’s heard about anything in the news, and find out what he knows. 
  • Make your child aware of the green and sustainable lifestyle. 
  • Tell them why everyone should think about saving the planet Earth.
  • They should be taught to live with compassion towards all living beings around us

This will help your child become a caring learner.

Help your child take charge of his learning

Encourage your child to make decisions, be around and vigilant, and guide them if they are taking decisions that could really harm them. You can try by telling your child that:

  • Your child should be in charge of their learning and become responsible for it. This includes their daily home work.
  • We want them to be responsible for their successes and failures,
  • Show them how engaging learning is, and
  • That the motivations for learning should be the child’s intrinsic interests, not an external reward.”

Don’t over-schedule your child

While you may want to supplement school with outside activities, be judicious about how much you let or urge your child to do.

  • Kids need downtime as much as they may need to pursue extra-curricular activities.
  • If a child has homework and organized sports and music lessons to attend and then you want to enroll him to a drawing class by compromising his play time, it can quickly become a joyless race from one thing to another. 

Therefore, monitor your child to see that he is truly enjoying what he is doing. If he isn’t, cut something off the schedule.

Parent’s Role in Child’s life

Keep TV to a minimum

It is thought that at present time, you get a lot of information through the internet and informative channels in T.V. 

It is true that a lot of information is served to us and we enjoy that with our eyes. But for it to reach to our brains, we need to do some thinking too. And for that do need to keep yourself from a lot of screen time.

  • Watching lots of TV does not give children the chance to develop their own interests and explore on their own, because it controls the agenda. 
  • Unstructured time with books, toys, crafts and friends allows children to learn how to be in charge of their agenda, and to develop their own interests, skills, solutions and expertise.

Learn something new yourself

Learning something new yourself is a great way to model the learning process for your child.

  • Take up a new language or craft, or read about an unfamiliar topic. 
  • Show your child what you are learning and how you may be struggling. 
  • You’ll gain a better understanding of what your child is going through and your child may learn study skills by watching you study. 
  • You might even establish a joint study time.

Happy parenting is every parent’s delight.

All the best wishes to you on this amazing journey. This will surely give us an easy life.

5 ways child will stop biting.

As a parent, to stop biting habit of your child, you just need to understand the causes behind this. Just handle the situation calming next time. 

Read 5 Reasons Why do children bite?

In all instances, react swiftly, and keep your cool. Don’t ever – ever – bite back or hit – retaliation could be dangerous. “You’re just teaching them violence causes violence,” But don’t dodge the issue – children need to know immediately that what they have done is wrong.

Here are the 5 ways to stop child from biting:

1️⃣Intervene:

 You need to be observant, look how intense, how frequent the bites are and what are the targets. 

  • One of the best ways is to act before your child has a chance to sink their teeth into anyone. Parents might be slow at doing this, but it is always one of the best ways. 
  • Separate your child away from the person they’re about to bite. 
  • Don’t put them into large groups if that’s where it happens. Plan in advance for their behaviour.
  • Children often clench their teeth before they bite – an unmistakable sign. React swiftly.
  • Take the child somewhere quiet to calm down.
  • If a teething child is trying out his or her teeth, find toys to chew and chomp on.      

 2️⃣Teach them it’s wrong:

  • When your child bites, use simple but firm words. 
  • Try, “that’s biting, that’s wrong” or a firm “no”.
  • If you’re in a group, remove them from the situation. 
  • Explain that it hurts others and why you don’t like kids biting.

3️⃣Teach them to express themselves: 

When things have calmed down, try to help your child find a less painful way to express their feelings.

  •  If a child is biting to show his affection, there are chances he might not do this again.
  • *If your child’s expressing love, teach them to hug rather than bite whenever they feel strong emotions.
  • If your child bites out of defence, show them how to tell somebody they don’t want him or her too close. Teach them to make the “stop” sign (a hand held up) or ask them even gently to push the other child’s shoulder which won’t hurt but gives a clear message.
  • Teach them to come and find you instead if they’re angry.

4️⃣Reduce the effectiveness:

When children bite to gain attention, dealing with it is trickier. 

  • After the first big  incidence, don’t try to reason or explain.Give a firm “no”. 
  • Put your body between victim and biter and turn your back on the biter.
  • Give the victim sympathy and the biter a clear message this is an unproductive way of getting attention.

5️⃣If time-out is one of your methods:

*If time-out is one of your methods, now’s the time to use it.

  • *If the bite was over a toy or treat, remove it for a short while.
  • If a child tries to control his or her mum by biting, try physically putting a part of their body in the way as they go to bite – an arm or a leg, which will stop them in their tracks.

Now as you have read till here, this is an extra tip, which works wonders –

Praise them for good behavior”: Praise them for good behavior and see how the problem fades away. Beware, don’t over do it. 

When to ask for help: Don’t rush to a therapist; seek help or advice from friends and other parents, or teachers. This is very unlikely that you will fail after this, but if you do, then surely visit a therapist.

Happy childhood is every child’s right.

All the best wishes to you on this amazing journey. This will surely give us an easy life.

Not all kids bite, but experts say up every 4th child will do at some stage – mostly between the ages of 2 & 3. It is a phase that passes by 4 yrs, most children have grown out of it. Some try the odd bite and move on, others grow into REGULAR biters.

And when we are talking about regular biters, it’s a serious issue. It hurts to see the victim in so much pain. This could also get your child kicked out of nursery. It doesn’t mean your child is a monster – many biters are otherwise gentle and sociable.

5 Reasons Why do children bite?

Understanding why a child bites is key to beating the problem. Not all children bite out of anger or to hurt another child – in fact kids can’t really understand how much pain they’re causing. “Question yourself what the child is gaining by biting,”

“Think what the reward is for him or her – does he get a huge amount of attention?”

Experts advise parents to try and see biting as a way of communicating rather than just bad behaviour – once we do that, we’ve got more choices in how to respond.

5 Reasons Why do children bite?

  1. Expressing emotion: Oddly enough, young toddlers can bite as a way of showing love. “Toddlers have really intense feelings but don’t know how to show them, “Biting can be a way of expressing their feelings. Mothers often don’t understand why it’s just them who get bitten.”
  2. Experimenting: Toddlers are learning how their body works – they put things in their mouths, and sometimes bite.  It’s impulsive and they don’t mean to hurt. Often, a baby bites someone when they’re teething. Sometimes toddlers bite when they’re over-excited.
  3. Defending: Young children learn to bite as a defence, especially if they can’t talk. Sometimes when children are late at learning to speak, they use biting as their defence. They bite whenever they are anxious or feeling threatened. These children are trying to establish a safety zone. Sometimes changes or upsets at home can bring on this type of biting. 
  4. Controlling: Some children know biting as a method of getting to do what they want from the other children or their parents. They don’t always do this consciously. It may happen when a group of children are jostling to be leader. Sometimes the youngest child in the family bites to gain power. Those who have done this, knows biting is a fantastic way of getting attention, even if it’s negative, still purpose solved.
  5. Frustrated or irritated: Your child wants a toy back. Or they want a biscuit or adult attention, or can’t cope with a situation. They may not understand turn-taking and sharing. Or things may have changed at home or the child feels under stress. Your child doesn’t necessarily mean to cause harm, but just can’t find the words to express themselves.

As a parent, you just need to understand the causes behind this biting habit. Just handle the situation calmly next time. Comfort your child.

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?

Happy childhood is every child’s right.

All the best wishes to you on this amazing journey. This will surely give us an easy life.
