My Personal Space:

It is often seen that children are given instructions throughout the day from one source or the other. In educational institutions their time tables are fixed and they are required to follow the instructions of tutors. At home they are required to follow the instruction of parents throughout the day. Every time such questions are asked ,”Where are you Tom ? What are you doing? I told you to do this. First finish of this then do something else. Tasks are ready for them to perform one after another.

The art of Minimum

blog pictures 4

Let us learn to live with the minimum things required. Our ancestors were happy people with minimum things and gadgets around them. The more things and gadgets we have around us the more we have messed up and screwed up our lives.Earlier the children used to go out in open to play but, with the gadgets around them they prefer to sit inside glued to these gadgets. Going out and playing with peers and managing out on the field helped them develop social and various other skills.

Multitasking versus Focussed Working:

focus2

At the very start of this discussion one thing that needs to be clear is that most of the times we use multitasking for very short duration of time but, for the purpose of this discussion the time frame has been increased and it’s used as a representation for trying to do multiple things . Keeping this in mind let us start the discussion.

Views in favour the multitasking

Replenishing Ourselves:

We constantly use our energy for different activities that we do in our daily lives. If we keep on using our energy without replenishing it, we may soon drain out. Here, we are not just talking of the energy on physical level but, the energy on spiritual level as well.

Sometimes we feel enthusiastic about the work we need to do and the things we need to perform but, lack enough strength on physical level to do these tasks.

Pushing Oneself Beyond One’s Limits is the Key to Success

b2
We need to learn to push ourselves beyond the limits imposed on us by our own selves. When we decide to limit ourselves and set boundaries for ourselves on what we can do and what we can’t do, we are the people who limit our success. Our mental barriers decide the boundaries for our progress and growth.

Wherever we have set limits for ourselves we need to go and challenge our limits, it is only then can we proceed and succeed in our lives.

Working Mothers – Boon or Bane ???

p2

Working mothers have a dilemma and a guilt feeling on that whether they are ignoring their children for the sake of career? Some mothers work for their career development and some work due to financial constraints. Whatever the case be points go both for and against working mothers.

Points in favour – for the working mothers:

Good news for working mothers is that they act as a role model for their children – a strong , confident and independent figure. Children look up to their mother as a figure who carries herself well and it gives them good feeling about themselves and their mother. Children look up to be like their mothers –independent and growth oriented.

Children become independent from a very young age.

Finding a mentor is very important in Life.

Mentor in todays world is same as what we called a MASTER in ancient world.

He is a person who has the capability of looking into the gifts you have with you , the capabilities you have with you and guides your capabilities in right direction. He is a person who has the capability of taking the best out of you and holding you when you fall.

Once you find a right mentor in your life nearly half of your journey on the path of your dreams is achieved.

Help your children find their purpose in Life- A Viewpoint

horse-wallpapers

Real happiness is found when we have a purpose in life and we are moving forward towards that purpose.

As long as we are on the journey and are moving each step forward towards the fulfilment of our goal or purpose, we are happy.

If the purpose is not there or we are not clear about our goals or there is confusion in our minds we don’t find real happiness and are lost in life. So, we need to prepare our children to find their goals and purpose in life. Once they are on the track they won’t have much distractions and will be focussed and purposeful.

With purpose and goal comes the will to work hard and achieve it. When we have a purpose we are ready to put the best of our effort .When the goals are not clear, we don’t know on which path we are moving , each step requires lot of effort from our side, each step seems to be very tiring and drenching . So, where is the question of putting the best effort in this case???

Always encourage your children to dream big in life and move high in life. It is well said that ‘Great Things’ were achieved by people who first dreamt big. Letting your children dream and letting them take the flight of their dreams is very important. This will give them a sense of fulfilment in life and in the end of life they will live a peaceful and satisfied life.

Healthy Lifestyle is the best legacy we can pass to our kids- A Viewpoint

m6


As parents we should strive to inculcate health conscious habits in kids and teach them how to lead and maintain a healthy life style.


•We along with our kids can go in for morning exercise sessions. Once this becomes a habit for them they will know for themselves the benefits of morning exercise. This will keep them active mentally and physically. Soon they will know the difference between the days they go for exercising and the days they don’t go for exercising.

•Good eating habits form a part of healthy life style. Now a days it is seen that children keep on munching junk food. We as parents need to discourage this and make a shift towards healthy eating habits. We should keep our children well informed about the food value of various foods and how it affects our body.

•Regular Meditation can also be introduced into their daily routine. Once they form the habit of meditating , knowing of course the right technique , this will help them in mastering their mind. Their mind will not wander unnecessarily and unwanted chattering of mind will stop. They will be in control of their thoughts and can direct their mind like a chauvinist to what they want it to think and not expend their energies in unnecessary thoughts.

Success is a journey inwards-a view point

As parents, we try to do whatever we can do and provide whatever we can ,so that our children succeed in their respective fields. But, are all these efforts reciprocated in the same manner with the hard work and effort that is required from children’s side ???

In most cases I see that whatever effort is being made and whatever facilities that are being given from parent’s side are taken for granted and there is no or little effort from child’s and student’s side. That sincerity of effort is lacking.

Now a days we see that children from less privileged families are coming up and shining. So, what is it that is required for succeeding?

Logical thinking is a skill that can be nurtured in children

imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2

Logical thinking is a learned process in which one uses reasoning.It is a bent of mind that needs to be nurtured in children. It is less concerned with accumulating undigested facts. It is the kind of thinking process that will be required by children not only in taking competitive exams but also throughout their life and in every field of their life. Logical thinking means not to take things at their face value but to research and analyse available facts. Logical thinking can be improved through constant observation and experimentation. A logical thinker is a person who not only reacts to the stimuli, but he also creates new things and ideas. ”Trial and error“ method is very important for developing logical thinking.Trial and error method allows room for making mistakes and learning from them rather than leading an inert existence like a Wall. With trial and error method children, come to know about new relationships in old thinking. A superior logical thinker is a person who is able to find out new relationships in old things.

Means for improving logical reasoning in students:

How to improve grades ( A simple psychological way of dealing)A slight twist in our approach can make a lot of difference

imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2

Before we discuss on how to improve grades let us first answer a simple question: “How much grades on average our child is managing to get ?”It means, this is the natural calibre of the child and this much marks he is able to achieve without much effort.

Let us assume that our child is getting on an average 75% of marks and our target is that he should be achieving above 90% marks or may be 100%. Now don’t make him think that he has to achieve 100% result but let him change his thinking to that with whatever effort he is already putting he is able to achieve 75% marks, his target is to achieve just 25% more .He has to put extra effort to achieve only 25% more. If he thinks “Oh! I have to achieve 100% result. Continue Reading on our website platinumlearningmate.com
